When my Lakewood is done (somewhere in 2048 hahaha) after that i can help :tu:

Need to order 2 bolts, after that it is axle time, building it up, everything is ready.
New axle, new bearings, new joints, nuts and bolts. All other parts cleaned and painted.

Hope i got the littel parts quick at home.

For now ready to instal are the diff parts and PG parts and axle parts. The drivetrain is almost ready read.

The crappy thing is that any place in the past you ever posted photos from photobucket are likely to no longer be viewable. That is what imageshack did when it became a pay service.

Yes if i want to share it to "3th" parties than it wil cost me money, i switched a couple of years ago because facebook changes JPG adres, to photobucket to got a steady photo link, and now this

Google photo cant link images

I will look further, stay tuned!

You are not the only victim…

Some of the pictures I post are hosted on my Facebook page. You can also upload pictures directly from your PC as attachments on the Corvair Forum. In that way you avoid any third party hosting by storing the photographs you wish to share directly in the Corvair Forum server. The attachment photographs you upload can then be embedded within the text at any location you choose.
