"SKWIRLY 2"- 'Weird Ohs' style VW pickup funny?

Recommended Posts

pixel.gifWell gents......got to spend a li'l more time at the bench

with the SKWIRLY dude.....Capndoingsomeexhaustingwork-vi.jpgBeen wanting to squirt some paint on dat 4banger,

but weren't sure if'n it weres ready fer dat, or if'n

we had us some more 'machinen' to do. Being just

'bout exhausted----Dat's IT! mill out them exhausty

ports and we be ready fer squuirts! :P pixel.gifuhoh_-vi.jpgUh oh........momentsary lapse into.....something :angry: :ph34r: :unsure: pixel.gifexhaustportsmachined-vi.jpgOK, we's back, and looky there! :blink: Them li'l port drillin' elves

has got 'er done! T'anks fellers! ^_^ pixel.gifgettinthe4bangerreadytosquirt-vi.jpgNow to figure out hows to hold this here 4banger

while squirttin' it, put some coffeee stirrers over

them mounting bolts to keeps the squirts off'n the

threads coz I don't wanna be tryin' to run a tap on

'em to cleans 'em off.pixel.gif4bangerfused-vi.jpgAnd... TA DA! the 4banger is now 'fused'

(not as much as me tho, I dare say). Yeps, I been

havin' this here can of so called 'satin' blue which I

thought were gonna be mucho much flatter than this

but, whatever..... Did a goodly 'mount of squirtin on

the banger, tryin' to get the blue in all the cooks &

nrannys, and wound up with some runs, which were

coool coz I wanted to be dabbin' in the wet stuff to try

and give it dat rough cast iron look. When I were kindly

satisfried, and when the paint weres dryin' to th' point

that 'twouldn't takes no more dabbin, I gave a little more

dustin' of the blues to try and cover up the thin spots.

I's hopin' ya'll be seein' pics here, coz I been havin' a

truly turrible time with me fotki not letting me 'share photos'

with all ya'lls. But I just got done prayin' and God tole me

to go 'head & copy dem bad boys off'n my fotki and paste 'em

here in SKWIRLY's place, so.......... :lol:

That has such character! (no, I'm NOT saying which one!) I for one will really miss this when it's done. :)

As far as you're problems with Foki. maybe it's time for Photobucket. I have images parked on at least 4 or 5 of these sites and find Photobucket is really setup for using them as links from other places. Everything's already set up for every image and it's just a copy and paste.

Thanks Mike. I'd offer to send ya the SKWIRLS when it's finished, the way I's gettin' freaked so much the time with him :lol: , but he'd probly get real ornery and things'd just get mucho more worsers!!

Thanks fer the advices on the photo hosties. I's got a purty well worn out computer at home what's still on dial up. Mebbe one day I'll upgrade to cable & whatevers. That seems to be biggest part of the problem. No problemo with me Fotki on the public comps at the library, excepting the fact that the 'right clickers' are disabled on them. Never did learn how to just be able to 'reach out' of this here page into the Fotki, to copy the urls, etc. I put links to my Fotki pages into my email, put that email into my flashdrive, plug the flashdrive into the library comp, and get MCM and Fotki open at the same time. Only problem, when I go to the Fotki, copy the 'share photo' url, then click on the 'insert image' in this window, I can't paste coz the right clicker (at the library) be disabled. Can't go to 'Edit' at top of the page coz the 'insert image' box wants fed sumthin'. Like I sayd, I prays, and God provides. We gets the pix in here one ways or anothers. Yep, maybe one these days........ :lol:

Well, I'm impressed you use the right-click menus. Some people never learn that. The trick to NOT have to use right-click, or if you can't, is highlight the text to copy and ctrl-C to copy. Then use ctrl-V to paste it where ya wants.

I'm surprised a library would disable a right button. Can't imagine what they are trying to prevent.
