Phil, what ever operating system you have in your computer will have an image re-sizer application that you can download. You will then be able to resize your photos for example, from 5489 X 4897 pixels to 1048 X 764, and then the album index will be able to load the photo more quickly.

I was just out side and i wanted to see if it would let me from my phone. I will have to down load the pictures from my cell phone to the computer. It would be so nice to post from my phone because i hardly get on the desk top computer. Phillip

Phil,

Of you get internet on your phone, you can upload the photos from your phone onto Surfacezero, and then attach them to your reply on G503.

Awesome photo, Phill! That will be really helpful when I get to making my stencils.

Haven't had any time to work on the truck, unfortunately. Been busy cranking out an M29 Weasel top.

Been working on canvas lately, so I haven't done much with the truck. I did get a nice visit from Cody. He was nice enough to trade me some missing parts to my spare tire carrier. Thanks to Cody, I've now got a complete carrier assembly!

Thats good you have the spacer. I have one if you needed it. Its to bad they cut the hinge part. If they wouldn’t have cut it you could have just knocked out the pin and fixed the carrier to the frame. Phillip. Keep up the good work.
