Yep, you guys are right. Was just trying to get it movable, not really drivable. Will bite the bullet and go new. Thx.

Thanks all. I asked him for housing details, spline count, and axle length and am waiting for answers.

Doh, location added. Thanks for the information. Am sure the shocks are wasted, so will add those to the list.

Edekalil, I just responded to your form submit, but looks like you are all set. Quick instructions for posting are here:

 

"You sign up for an account, log in, then you can just choose the "+Create" pull down on the upper right and choose "Gallery Image" from the drop down. It will then ask which gallery. "Members Albums Category" will allow you to upload to an existing gallery or create a new one. From there you just use the uploader, add descriptions and such, and you are set."

 

Let me know if this does not work easily for you.

 

Thanks, Derek

This is actually the exact same software (InvisionPower) that Ratsun uses. Only I have not activated the forum, calendar, or classifieds modules since that is covered here (and elsewhere). There is the Gallery, Downloads, Video, and User Map activated so it does not compete with any other Datsun forum. It's pretty easy. You sign up for an account, log in, then you can just choose the "+Create" pull down on the upper right and choose "Gallery Image" from the drop down. It will then ask which gallery. "Members Albums Category" will allow you to upload to an existing gallery or create a new one. From there you just use the uploader, add descriptions and such, and you are set.

 

I do not like the interface as much as Photopost, but it works fine. If we move to custom templates I'll play with some changes, but for now, it is stable and working, which means I really don't want to touch it other than backups and security patches. There's already over 30,000 images on it - mostly of 510s or other Datsuns - and many users hotlink from it.

 

Without sharing user databases I cannot make a single sign-on between Ratsun and Datsun510.com, but maybe someone from Ratsun will want to discuss that in the future.
