I'll post some as soon as I can figure how to make them smaller so they'll fit.

Welcome aboard. You should have microsoft paint on your computer. If so you can use it to reduce the size of your pictures. Reduce them down to 650X480 and you can put them on your posts using the attachment feature.

thanks for the bravo zulu's, now that i am retired n don't have to ride around punching holes in the ocean on submarines, i live with my son, and repair cars on the side for the soldiers here on base. i just started redoing an 86 blazer, kinda like the 85 i did in the pics, it had a mishap with a deer and has a 90 nose on it, just finished installing the engine, all thats left is the front floor pan repairs, carpet, seal the windshield and paint it. thanks. George.

You guys are a "Special Breed", when I gave my respect to the men on the USS Arizona a couple of years ago I went through the Sub they have on display. Now I know it's a WWII rig but man 'o man!!! Absolutely no way I could do that even in a new sub. I was a bulldozer driver in Viet Nam...67-68, lots of sunlight and fresh air....usually.......Welcome

thanks for the compliment, I did 2 tours of the last diesel boat the navy built, Uss Bonefish SS582, the 2nd boat of the same name, named after the last boat lost in WW2. also did a gig on a special ops boat. those WW2 boats were something else. Bonefish was the first full class of the teardrop shaped hull based on the Albacore, but it kept all the inconvenience's of the old guppy's boats, crammped, hot, and that diesel smell that I can still smell today. Thanks for your and all our veterens service, George.
