But keep up the good work... My project is running longer than i ever imagend.. THa chassis and carrosserie is split for almost one and a half year... And there's some much that still have to be done.
And I (and i think everyone have) sometimes have no time or have no sense to go farther on my project.. But i always looks on the internet to some sites and pictures and my motifation comes back to gether than.. Just work point by point.. and do everything good... ANd everything comes back to gether succesfully...

Greetings Wiebrand:silly:

Alex,

I am sorry to hear about your loss.

As for the project........I was thinking of selling everything at least 4-5 times. I got to the point where I had no vision for my project anymore. I took to long.......it will be over 4 years when it is done.

But then I tell myself.....

I am a modifier. Even a 911 would be modified. So I rather stick to my bug and have something unique. Once it is done I do not even think about a Porsche anymore anyways.

So I continue to work on my project and once it is completely done it will the my garage.

So your are not alone with those thoughts.

Hang in there.....it will be worth it.

Alex

To all,
Thanks for the motivating pep talk.. Like I mentioned earlier, was feeling gloomy and about project.. Kinda remapped my plan of attack.. Allowed more time than I initially thought I needed.. As I see 10 years should be about right Obviously time/money are the limiting factors.. Just have to make time and tackle, little by little..
Using those thoughts and putting them to practice.. Started up my 944 conversion.. After two evenings of headaches I was able to put together a spindle with all the 944 stuff (rotor, calipers, pads.. ) Was so excited took spindle to the show the wife.. She seemed happy.. (For me, I think she could care less about car stuff) But it felt nice to accomplish something..Even if it was little.. Now, taking my lessons learned from the left side will apply it to right.. Hope to work on it later this week.. Need to do some work on the home also

Bought a digital camera, as this seems the easiest way to share problems and findings.. But I have no idea on how to insert pics into my messages.. Do I have to pay for this function?..

Again thanks for helping and getting the fire back in my eyes.. Would love to share pics to show progress.. I know this forum helped alot when I was in the study portion of the conversion.. Plus, I have many quesitons on the rear part of the conversion.. Those I will send out later as I have focused on the front end for now..
Thank you
Alex

you can save the pic to your computer and then use the "attach file" option you see at the bottom of the "post reply" screen and it will just show as a link in your post (see below as i have attached a pic).

alternately, you can save the pic to an internet store (see one of the free pics sites that allows linking) and then use the "IMG" key you see in the "vB Code" section in the "post reply" screen and just insert the URL or path to the file whereever it is posted.

hope this helps. sorry i do not know of any free picture storage sites since i do hosting (free storage to me ). one of the other guys on here can point you to some though.

Posting pics

Alex,
In order to post pics, they must be uploaded to somewhere else on the internet first.. like shutterfly.

Go to http://www.shutterfly.com and you should be able to sign up for free and put your pics up there. Then right click on the photo and go down to properties, right click and click on copy. Then when you post a topic, look up above this box for the "IMG" and it will ask you for a url of the pic. Put it right in there and hey presto, you're done.

Cool

When you say "into acutal messages", I'm not sure what you mean.

If you mean like this



Then it is as decribed as above.

Or do you mean the little pic just above your username?

Size of pic

Alex,
I don't think there's a limit to a size of a pic but if you can stick by these guide lines, it will help you and everyone else with uploading them and viewing them

Try to use JPEG's or GIF's as they take up less room and therefore load quicker and the purposes of the internet, they are good enough for quality. You can change a BMP to a JPEG or GIF using Paint or other picture programs. Just use "Save as" and chose the pic type at the bottom.

When you are using your camera, you should be able to select the size of the picture on the camera before you take the pic. I use 640X400 or so and this is usually a good size. If you go huge, then all you'll have to do is re-size every pic once you've uploaded them onto your computer and they will take up so much room on your camera that you'll severly limit the amount of pics you can take before you run out of room on the memory card.

Good luck and we'll look forward to seeing some pics.

If I've got anything wrong here or missed something important... I'm sure someone will chew my *** for it before long

Mike
