Darn, I hate you broke your camera.:D

Photobucket has a hair up it's butt and won't upload the pics. This happened a week ago too and I refreshed Firefox and it seemed to fix it but that didn't happen just now. Guess I'll try the attachment feature.

Welded up ye olde fake bed floor today. How about some purposefully fuzzy because phone-with-cover-on pics? Its in and didn't warp all to heck on me. Needing to fast-forward it to the paint shop, y'know how that is.

I'm practicing my uploading rather than linking, on pics. I suspect that might have been bad forum-ing, dunno. Made a few journal entries today with 70 Mach 1 metal work on 'em. Plenty more where that came from...

When you've got your attachments in, click on the highlighted pic # and it will open the pic in a new window. Right click, hit copy, come back and paste it into your thread. HR will be hosting your pics for you.

I removed the attached pic after pasting to the thread.
Can you see the pic?

Car stuff: I received my chip for my TPI pickup and installed it. The truck started right up and I took it for a test drive to the lumber store. I got a code 51 still, but no more code 46 VATS. The new chip seemed to give me a wee bit more torque. :thumbup:


House: I got all my copper supply pipes run and set up for the air test.
I got air leaking past all the shower/tub valves and getting past my temporary "spouts". Will tape them all up tonight, hopefully it holds and can get a final inspection for the plumbing.'

Electrical next, wahoo....

I worked on the F100 yesterday too. I'll try Pugsy's trick for full size attachments.

Woo hoo, that seems to work. Now granted everything I've done here is to restore the structural integrity of this truck. If this was going to be seen, it is pure hack-job butchery.

I do not see pics either.

Well, that's strange, I can see them in both my post and Troy's replay, where he said he can't see them...:confused:

Maybe they only show up on the posters computer, because I don't see a pic in Pugsy's post either.....strange things going on here....do do do do

I think the problem is I removed the thumbnail along the bottom and maybe that removes the full size pic from view ??? No clue...:drunk:

I think that's it.
Leave the thumbnail and should be fine. I guess that is what I was doing before.

I'm not seeing the Ford pics here. The Chevelle frame fix looks nice so far though. Taking the safe route, I just updated my journal again, speaking of 60's Ford truck structural integrity.


Now I'll take this opportunity to try this thing you-all are talkin 'bout: (this is a tough spot to block, and yep its all steel and one piece)

Hey I'll visually Paul Harvey that spot for you guys then, and thanks. I'll try creating an album for that car. Can't take any credit for the metal work, the customer has a rod shop and just brought us the body for a show quality mud bath and paint. I did do metal refining and finishing here and there on it (gaps, grinding welds, etc) and skinned the rumble lid though. I spanned the gap between owner and painter on it. Everybody always figures its fiberglass but none of it is. Well, as you can see theres plenty of plastic on top of all that steel, ha ha. Its worthy of some scary close-ups. That job was a couple years back.

ALL really straight cars have some filler, or they are not straight,,my red chevy is probably the straightest vehicle and -0- rust I have ever worked on ,But it has been wiped in several places ,primed ,blocked ,primrd blocked several times to get it like I wanted:thumbup:

Today I went on a walking tour of breweries in the "South of Market" district of San Francisco. And Mike, I'll hold the beer and meals stories for another time. :D
