Chris, I did something weird again! I was trying to edit my modifications on the members' cars section and inadverdently managed to get myself listed in "garage review". All I was trying to do was list any work I did myself under "SELF" (yup, that's me) in the"my vehicle" section. According to garage review, I have rated my installations at the "SELF" garage a 19 out of 20. Hey that's pretty good!
A few times I tried to list a local garage, so I followed the instructions to "click here," and was redirected to forum instead of the new business listing.
Also, the last time I tried to enter stuff on my mods, The website said I don't seem to be me and wouldn't let me enter more data. I would truly like to be someone else, Angelina Jolie perhaps, but I guess Iam stuck in this body. Oh well! I shall try to navigate properly in the future. This tech business is for the twenty and under crowd, if you want my opinion!

Dont worry, It happens to the best of us ...and I will take the 20 something comment as a compliment :) I am in my 30s but , as my wife reminds me of often, act like I am still in my early 20s.

I will try and sort out your issue ..but if for some reason one of your mods dissappears please just reenter it. Also if something doesnt appear right off that means it has to be approved. I am going to write that part of the walk though into the big post up top when I get time .

Ok I have changed your SELF to Owner installed and set it as a perm option in the drop down in the lists for shops. Thanks for the heads up :thumbright:

I tried to load a pic of my pistons but they must be too big. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

Wow thats a big pic :!: as I have the limit set to 4M. Do you have photoshop or MS paint ? I am going to do a writeup of how to resize images in ms paint but a option for you would be to upload the image to my gallery site where you already have a album then use the medium sized pic from your gallery for the image. Just right click on the smaller image preview and save as then upload that to your garage profile.

Let me know if you need any help.
