#1541445 INSMNCS: Now with unicorn poo.

One way or the other they will end up in the environment. They won't stay on the car forever. No one will want to scrap or work on them.

Asbestos isn't man-made...

Like I said...

Are people grinding up those gaskets and inhaling the dust?

Asbestos is overrated

Why can't we post images from our computers here the way you can on most other sites?

Costs more money.

That didn't answer my question. I'm talking about the free host you're using now. When it shuts down or starts demanding money, then what? I am not saying stick with photobucket. I am with DanielC. The only way to preserve your photos is hosting them with your own domain. That way, even if your host dies as long as you have a backup you can host them elsewhere and point your domain at the new host. The domain is never married to the host, so you can always keep your links working. With 3rd party hosts you don't control the domain nor directory structure so you can't fix bad links without editing every link posted.

I have set up a website, stormyhill.com, and pay for hosting it using GoDaddy.com. By the way, there are currently four pictures if you go to http://www.stormyhill.com/, the white, and green 521 trucks are links to the beginning of two threads in Ratsun, of my work on the two trucks. The other two pictures of a dog I had, and my boat, do not link to anything.

Obviously, I can post pictures, and almost anything else on the server space I am renting.

I then use a FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program, Filezilla to upload my pictures to my rented server space. Filezilla opens up two windows on your computer, one window lists the directory structure on your computer,the other window list the directory structure on your server space. Then you can transfer single photos, multiple photos, or directories from or to your computer, and the server by using the drag and drop just like transferring from one directory, (or folder) on your computer.

Once the pictures are on the rented server space, you can use the green image link in the header of the edit window on community.ratsun.net

I click the green image tag, the "image properties" window pops up, I enter the full file name for the image, Click OK, and this happens.

That's the way to do it.

Wayno, what do you do when that host goes belly up too?

It's not you, it's photobucket. They ended 3rd party free image hosting, so only photos hosted with a paid account will show up. Lesson for people who rely on free (aka risky) services.

Cue Wayno in 3...2...1...

No pics but wagon is in the shop getting a full custom stereo. Alpine F1 status dyna audio component front and rears and fosgate amps and woofer. Just going with one 12” woofer. That will be plenty of boom. I love the old school stuff.

I would go with a high excursion 15 if only one, but that's just me :P

Just pulled the 620 off the AAA policy and placed it with a Hagerty standalone policy.

I highly recommend. Higher replacement value + EQ coverage. You can adjust your quote online depending on the options.

I tried, but I'm not willing to lie about usage so they wouldn't accept my application (I told them I use the truck to haul things a couple times a year - that was apparently too much).

#1540248 no lights

Posted by thisismatt on 14 January 2018 - 09:21 PM

Probably not as often as crappy glass fuses.




#1540196 Alternator(fn) wiring from new harness

Posted by thisismatt on 14 January 2018 - 01:43 PM

Nothing happens if wired wrongly. Charge light does not work. Just swap them around.

 

I wouldn't count on that...

 

The top of the T connector is the "N" (+12v), the leg is the "F" (charge/ignition lamp)

Posted by thisismatt on 14 January 2018 - 01:17 PM

F goes to your ignition/charge lamp.  N goes to +12v, ideally a switched source.

I assumed he meant "to move the seat over enough to retain the tray"... sort of thing.

Well, yes & no...I was thinking there was a tray on both sides of each seat, but yeah...massage the tunnel to move the whole seat over.
