It took me months to get back on this forum when the did the password upgrade. I don't even want to try and post pictures

Glad ya made it back!

I'd post this;
http://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/new-here-please-read/29310-how-post-pictures.html

But photoHukster just recently went into conquer/rape/extortion mode, demanding $400/yr for their previously built on FREE empire access. 'uhNo

I'm in the same boat, relying on attachments for pics. But that's not unlimited on this site, governed by data limits. So sending 'em this way work.

Some have suggested Imgur and another I don't recall.
It's a sad day in the Forum world with the recent money-grab from the carpetbaggers.

Pics, feed the addiction. :nerd:

Not with my flip phone, for me no smart phone, Facebook, utube. I only go to forums for info. I very seldom post, most places have a lot of experts. I started posting today to get 25 so I can get a vin check. But will keep the build thread going, I am always willing to listen, and this diesel thing is a whole new language.

Today worked a little on merging a 55 Buick dash into a diamond t, it will probably take a couple of weeks to get it to fit. But I want a deco dash unlike the flat face from the factory, it was upscale though packard instruments/gauges etc.

Dash mounted, next Ineed to cut the end/curve area off and mount on the doors. Then mud and send out for wood graining. But have to go to Williams Arizona to see an old friend, who is in a bad way with cancer.

Still staring at the dash, better to go slow for a better finished product. But this weekend replaced the water pump, pump housing, and thermostats. Read enough not to take a chance (all looked brand new, impeller was plastic, ) also started an overhead to house rear view camera, and edge cts2. Had to make blister around windshield wiper motors. I need to repair the upper windshield channel, the two windows used to hinge at the top, and screw out on the bottom. So this week trying to finish that stuff. But have to go and help a guy who bought Dale Armstrongs brougham, guys who bought it from dales widow messed up the wiring. I had helped Dale a little on it, hope my memory retained some

Just about finished adding interior steps for entry. Now to find a mid 70鈥檚 Lincoln towncar power seat ,and come up with a rear window frame for it.
