  1. Worked on chassis and suspension, measured and routed exhaust pipes for the muffler...this kind of work is tedious and really bores me to no end, but has to be done.
  2. Now that I have an engine block to work with I made a driveshaft , and can get some other suspension chassis work done. Exhaust headers and mufflers are in black base coat for ALCLAD.
  3. Rob, looking good. Can you tell me what metallic green paint you used on that engine block...I'd like to get some for a project. On the career life thing...I rarely wish bad things for anyone but I have nothing but ill will for the company that bought out your former employer, and hope they suffer the consequences of terminating you and your fellow workers so abruptly. They surely will suffer from not having the skilled people that made the company worth acquiring in the first place. Wishing you all the best as you enter the next phase.
  4. Don't think you can. Try searching on Google for tips on accessing Google picture files using a Galaxy. Google Photos: The Best Tips and Tricks | Digital Trends Google Photos lets you share albums with groups of people, who can also add to a common photo collection for ongoing updates of events and memories. You can share directly to anyone with a Google account. For everyone else, you can create a sharable link. When you share photos or albums, a link will be sent to the people you share with, but anyone who has the shared link can view the shared album or photos. If you share an album that automatically adds photos, anyone with the album link can view added photos in real time. Launch the Google Photos app and sign in. In the menu on the left, tap Photos. Tap a photo you want to include in an album and tap the three-dot icon at the top. Choose add to Album. Tap + New album or choose an existing album. Name the new album. Tap Add photos and choose other pictures for the album. Tap the Share button to invite others to view the album. If your recipients do not have a Google account, they can still view the album and add new photos to it via a link. To share that album, tap Share at the bottom of the screen, and there you will see some third-party apps you can also share those images with, including Twitter, Notes, AirDrop, Messages, and Mail. Alternatively, you can create a link to share with other people or apps.

The below method gets no awards for efficiency, has the advantage of keeping the content on the Google cloud. Tried Flickr, Imgr, etc, all have their unique issues.

  5. eBay took action against the seller, and because he could not provide a tracking number, PayPal refunded me the item cost plus shipping cost, and will probably bill seller.
  6. That might be a good workaround.....see if your individual images in google have URL links.....can you see and identify (as in right click) on the images in google and see if they have a URL link, and then copy and paste the URL link address ........ An example from FOTKi, It should start with the http: https:// ...................and it continues with : images34.fotki.com/v1623/photos/8/4112148/16319951/mockup2-vi.jpg When pasted in the insert other media, (insert image from URL) it looks like this: https://images34.fotki.com/v1623/photos/8/4112148/16319951/mockup2-vi.jpg
  7. I think Revel 48 Ford coupe has Navarro flathead valve covers.
  8. So you store all your photos on Google....in a photo album from your smartphone. And previously you simply clicked "Share Link", and you got a photo album link or icon to do the upload from Google. And now that doesn't work. The alternative method, " Insert other media" only connects to previously posted photos. That alternative method has two options....one "Inserts existing attachments" (and it sounds like that is working), the the other option "inserts an image from URL" which requires you have a photo service like FOTKI where you paste in an "image link" to your photo service. Sounds like something is going on with your Google account and your automatic link to your Google photo album from your smart phone has an issue...has that Google app been updated in any way?
  9. Hmmm....for some reason.....first try took me to a window with past pictures I've posted here on this site. Started a new response....Second try was normal....linked to my pc files to select a file folder for a picture.
  10. I post from my PC not from my smartphone/Galaxy.....so I won't have a suggestion. I'll post a pic to see if something is different on my side...from chose files (not drag files) gif, jpeg, jpe, jpg, png, mp4, 3gp, mov, ogg, ogv, mpg, mpeg, flv, webm, wmv, avi, m4v Insert other media Drag files here to attach, or choose files... Accepted file types gif, jpeg, jpe, jpg, png, mp4, 3gp, mov, ogg, ogv, mpg, mpeg, flv, webm, wmv, avi, m4v Insert other media
  11. "Guys who remember this kit from the '60s no doubt remember the cool artwork of a green custom with the door open that tempted them to buy, then discovered the nightmare of trying to build it!" WAS THIS IT?
  12. Reported. Hi James, We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t receive your item. We have asked the seller to respond to your request. Your purchase is covered by eBay Money Back Guarantee. If your request is not resolved, you can ask us to step in and help beginning Feb 26, 2021.
  13. I need to get those pictures we took with Ed Big Daddy scanned.
  14. I read the feedback....good and some bad....figured the bad were delays on the more complicated parts that were made to order. Not like its the end of the world...was about $8.99 not inc. S&H. I generally stick with Norm and Detail Master, and Model Car Garage. But I got a pretty nice B&M resin tranny last week from an eBay vendor so I thought I'd give this guy a try. If I don't get it on Monday I'm filing action w/ eBay and letting you know the outcome.' EBay usually tells you to give it a few days after you file before they take action...usually 5-6 days. I've already given ten after the projected delivery. I've had some delays in mail recently. - I got a refund on another vendor two months ago for some Araldite 90 sec. epoxy that car modelers in Australia like. That one had a tracking number that said it was delivered and left in my garage...... in NY. My garage is at the back of the lot...and all mail and deliveries come to my front door,.......and I live in Virginia. ! Vendor could not provide eBay a valid tracking number so judgement was against him and i was refunded.
  15. My LHS put them all in a 50 % off bin so it may be worth a look
