I have not changed any of the requirements (still max size per post is 1500KB, Max size per attachment is 150KB Max number is 10, you can still link to pictures on the web).

What problems are you having, I posted both pictures and linked to pictures on the web earlier today?

You cannot upload that type of file. The only allowed extensions are doc,gif,jpg,mpg,pdf,png,txt,docx.

It says this also image.jpeg.

Those have been the allowable extensions from the very start.

JPG is the most common picture extension

What extension are you trying to use?

Have been playing around with the falcon. Pulled rear end out and found inside of housing complexly in rust. Ring gear did not have all its bolts. Everything I touch on this car is junk. I wasted $6000. I should have gone out to see it or not paid till I saw it. I am making the engine mounts out of 3/8" aluminum. They will attach to the ears on the block.

I'm glad you got it figured out, you had me going.

Isn't always the case that when someone is selling something it is nothing but the best, but when you take it home you find out it all has to be redone.

Not sure I got any value when I purchased mine either. That's just the way it goes when you buy stuff and its not limited to race cars. I never feel guilty when giving the seller my honest appraisal of their car. Sure they get mad but that's just reality setting in. Pay what you think the pile is worth otherwise you will feel taken advantage of.
If you don't get the car count your blessings!

Have been busy remodeling the bathroom and other house things. Got my new front wheels mounted and new front rotors.  I need to find someone close buy to widen my rear end.

Did you say widen your rear end? If you need a wider one I would sale the narrow one you have and buy a different housing

Ladder bar mounts are on. Not worth selling. Easier to add 4" on each side.
