If you are posting directly to the site and not using hosting, the Pic total has to be less than 500K bytes.... you can post up to 4 pics, so 4 at 124K, 3 at 165K, 2 at 249K...
You can reduce size several ways...
This has been discussed on several threads... search the site or google to figure it out... or just ask one of the grandkids 4 or older how to do it  :roll:  :cheers:

I just tried doing 1 at 300kb and no luck :-( I will try again with this post from my laptop instead of my iPhone.
I started with nothing, I have most of it left.

Wow, look at that 2 pics, 1 rotated for some reason. Try a couple more.

OK, so I have to transfer my pics from my phone to my laptop. Then resize them in Photoshop, then I can post them. Thanks for the push guys :cheers:

. . . and rotate them in PhotoShop.
They looked OK in photoshop. I did rotate them originally in my phone, so they must have a memory,(unlike me).

If you are using the old lakester, the photo is not actually rotated... the car was... at least by the looks of the body work  :roll:
OK back to your Modified...  :cheers:

Hate to say this, but, we have decided against the automatic. We are reverting to the T50 that we were going to use originally. The ratios aren’t that bad, and a couple of close ratio sets are available. The biggest hurdle is an adaptor to mount it. There was a manufacturer of them, but it seems he has closed up shop. We will get the engine and trans mated, one way or another.
Our only discussion now is about running a radiator or a water tank. What are the pros and cons of both of these ?

Sparky will tell ya go with the best of both.... put your radiator in a tank...
Do you have room and incoming air for a radiator... knowing that you may get drag from that  :| air in has to find an out. 
I would go tank and thermostat... but I'm just a guy with an opinion.... YMMV  :cheers:

Haven’t been back here for a while. We are progressing with the build, the motor and trans is now mounted, the firewall hoop is tacked in as is the hoop to hold the nose.
We decided finally on a 5 speed manual out of a Solstice. Maybe not the optimum choice, but it was available and donated.
After resizing some pics I will post them. Thanks once again for some guidance.
