Look forward to seeing it, Brad. We should have swapped cj's. My PO seemed more inclined to remove metal, versus welding any on!!

Get a photobucket account (or other online account). Upload your pics to Photobucket, then click the little "image" icon on the reply toolbar (the mountain looking icon), and paste the URL for the pic.

Keep posting then you'll be allowed to just attach them like on an e-mail. I think it takes 10 post or so, seems like someone said 30 once but I didn't think it was that high. So just respond to every comment on this thread.

Brad, Mopar346 is right (and I keep forgetting about the post count thing). It probably isn't working because you need more posts.
