Did a coiple of small jobs last weekend...

 

Firstly the starter motor had got very tired and sounded like a flat battery, it was steadily getting worse and only just starting the engine. So a refurbed one was sourced.

Battery and tray removed to gain access from above.

Id struggled with a snapped bolt in a rear shock mount whilst I was swapping onto the new suspension

I wasn't happy with one of the captive nuts that I re-tapped, it was slightly loose and you could hear a tapping on bumps.

Re-tapping for a Helicoil

So Photobucket are holding me to ransome if I want to share my photos...

 

Thats a shame!!!

 

If I move hosts its going to take some sorting to get my build back in order.

Yep they've ruined it for everyone.

What I don't understand is why they want so much in way of a fee? If it was reasonable most people would pay it, but I can't see many paying what they want.

True enough Jim....If it were a reasonable annual charge I would pay. I don't really need the amount of storage space they want me to have, There are far cheaper storage options out there.

It's just an absolute pita swapping and re-embedding all the photos in the correct place. I did try Flickr few years ago, but I found the app was crap so stuck to photobucket.

I've been using IImgur so far, actually for a few years.

 

Are there any ways we could get more storage on uk-mkivs for more photos?

 

i'd be happy to pay a monthly fee for bandwidth / traffic to upload pictures to somewhere which won't go offline :)

Good question...might be best starting a topic in the lounge or forum problems page to get an answer from admins.

 

cheers

Well its been a while since I last logged in here....

 

The car is still going strong although its time for a new turbo as I have plumes of smoke!

 

Just had new wings and sills fitted. Painted all front end.

 

Had a dent repaired on the rear arch caused  from someone who drove into me!

 

Cars looking well.

 

How is everyone putting photos up these days? I see photobucket are still holding us to ransome!!!

Well almost another year has gone by... I fitted a Venom hybrid turbo about this time last year. This weekend I put in a new clutch and flywheel. Been slipping a fair bit when the torque kicks in. Opted for another CG Motorsport went for the dual friction this time. So far so good.
