Hi all- I am feeling like a complete idiot....... I can't get my car pic to upload- I tried different pics, file sizes, etc, none will go- keep getting an error message.  Anyone else had trouble, and if so- how do I make it work?  Thanks (technology challenged here)

Where are you trying to upload it to? Sig pics need to be uploaded to your Personal File Folder, under the button.

If you want, you can e-mail the pic(s) to me, and I'll load them for you, and set them up for your sig pic.

I also had problems.  To me it was a complicated procedure.
But I am not much of a computer whiz.
Take Joel's advice and have him help you.

I'll try to help with your pic postings.

First download your pics into your computer.

Then upload them to a storage carrier like. Kodak, Webshots, Flicker, etc. (I use Webshots and that will be my following examples)

Here is my Webpage and you can check it out and see what I am talking about.

TUX'S WEBSHOTS

Here is the link to the Webshots homepage that will allow you to get started if you choose to use them.

WEBSHOTS HOME PAGE

Once you have your pics uploaded into storage you are ready to go.

When you are wanting to post a pic in C3VR click the reply button and enter your message. to post the pic click on the green tree. It opens up a box that you will need to paste a copied path into (later).

Open up you Webshots Album and find the pic you want to post and click on it. You will see a box on the right hand side that gives you some posting options. (size & and paths)

Choose the 200 pic size. That makes it Norsky friendly for C3VR.

Now look for the URL://HTTP path that is for posting the pic with a direct link. Click on it. This will highlight it and now you can right click and copy it.

Once you have copied it go back to your C3VR post and paste it in the box. Click ok, it should show the path in your post now.

Click on the preview box and you should be able to see your pic. If not there is sonething wrong with the path.

These work pretty much the same for all of the photo storage carriers I listed and exactly this way for Webshots.

Try this out and see if you can'y make it work. If you have trouble let me know and I will help you.

Take care, I look forward to seeing some new pics soon.

Serious is right- but fortunately they are movin along well.  The 76 is sanded, patched- except for one spot that I've been intimadated by- the passenger side front corner-major body line- is crushed.  Trying to figure a way to mold then use the mold to build over with mesh and fiberglass..... the 454 is ready, and tranny.  Got most of the parts now- just gotta get that last bit of body work, then she's off for her paint.  The 74 is now the 15 year olds car/problem.  Got it sanded, new frontend clip, and then got fed up.  The 76 was supposed to be the parts car- turned out to be in better shape than the 74.  WE're getting there thoiugh.  Should be ready by about March.  We also have the 71 camaro....with the 864 hp engine- that should be done by January 1st.  Never a dull moment....

First- no- not in business- just a hobby, though I probably should be since I've learned to patch fiberglass (according to others) pretty darn well, and yeah- thats the 02 in the background of the 74.  Both the 74 and 76 are completely sanded waiting for gelcoat now.  Well- the 76 still has the one major fiberglass repair to be done- it scares me.... oh- and the 86 showcar- yeah.... its in the barn (-:  Just a few vettes around here....

Becca,
 
I was also cuttin my teeth on the fiberglass repair for my 77.  Major damage above the drivers rear wheel.  I had NEVER done any fiberglass but figured it was only plastic with a ittle glue.  How hard to do .....
 
I cut out the damage (about a 12 by 16 swuare hole) which included the antenna and a large part of the fender line above the wheel opening.
 
With a couple .........(insert favorite beverages) I decided to try it without any help.
I first cleaned the edges and took a heavy welding rod and placed it on the underside of the fender to provide solid support and took time to get it shaped as close as possible.  Actually it took about an hour to get it close enough.
 
Then i stole a big alluminum roasting  disposible pan from the wife's kitchen.  by placing the pan under the fender but on top of the rod  I made a form to hold the glass and resin inplace during the patch.
 
I made the patch in four layers of 12 OZ cloth and layed each layer 45 degrees off the one below so that the fibers were crosshatched for strenght.   Then a couple layers on top and bottom of 1 OZ to feather and seal the plug in place and have plenty of filler to sandd without getting into the heavy cloth.
 
First attempt at glass and the painter wanted to know if I wanted a job.  I"d   go broke if he paid by the piece though/cause it took me about 7 months to figure it out and finall get it sanded down.
 
You might just be able to see the rear panel in the signature pic Joel put up here for me. 
 
I'm sure you are much better at glass than I am,  but my FORM repair might just give you and idea or two about how to do the front repair,
 
By the way,  I don;t know where Royce City is but I'm in Dallas, and allways like a road trip once in a while to look at other vets.
 
Nick
