hey guys, ran into a fellow named Andy at the trp show in auburn. he recomended checking out this forum and I'm glad he did. Anyway, I am just finishing up on a fiberglass dune buggy that I am enjoying the hell out of and I'm sure I will be looking for much advice down the road. I will post up a few pics as soon as I figure out how to. btw Andy, your nuts if you paint that buggy, it looks killer as is.

Welcome aboard!

your avitar is easy.. just go into profile and select a pic

for normal pics.. you need to upload your photo to a site like photobucket.com. It's free.. then photobucket will turn your pic into a coded line starting with img... copy the img line and past it in your reply

Almost all forums do this so there is no storage here.. the storage is on the site you store the pics

OR USE THE ONE LINKED TO THE SITE. ON THE REPLY BOX AT THE BOTTOM HERE ITS THE 6TH TAB FROM THE LEFT (LOOKS LIKE A PIC IN THE BACKGROUND AND A DISK IN FRONT) (IF YOU CLICK REPLY ITS THE 15TH FROM THE LEFT). CLICK ON THAT HIT BROWSE, FIND THE PIC YOU WANNA USE, AND HIT HOST. ONCE IT HAS IT 3 CHOICES COME UP I CLICK (ON COPY) ON THE BOTTOM ONE, ALLOW THEN UPLOAD. CLICK ON THE 7TH TAB OVER FROM ABOVE (JUST THE PIC) (17TH IF YOU CLICKED THE REPLY BUTTON), PASTE, CLICK OK AND YOUR DONE. SOMETIMES YOU MAY NEED TO CUT AND PASTE THE INFO TO GET IT RIGHT WHERE YOU WANT IT THO. GOOD LUCK.

OH AND WELCOME TO THE GROUP. GREAT TO SEE A NEW NAME AND CAR. HOPE TO MEET YOU IN PERSON SOON.

thanks, I have really been enjoying the buggy so far. much more fun driving it than some of the b.s. building it. not to mention the dmv crap. I still need a brake and lamp inspection then I can get some real plates. anybody know a vw friendly liscensed brake and lamp inspection station?
