    There are a couple of ways:

    1) Become an Elite Explorer. The cost is $20 a year and then you can upload pictures directly to the forum. You can also have your own avatar and a whole slew of other benefits (plus it helps keep the lights on in this great place.) I'm sure @peterk9 will be around soon enough and can give more details on the Elite Explorer membership.

    2) If you use the icon that looks like a portrait (instead of the one that looks like a camera) you can upload your pictures to a hosting site (like photobucket, OneDrive, etc.) Just copy the URL of the picture, click the portrait image and insert the URL...and your pictures will show up here without having to click a link. :)

    Welcome aboard. ;-)

    Look who I met tonight! @jonnoriega is a great guy! Could have spent hours talking to him if I didn't have the little ones with me, haha. He took a few pictures, too (his turned out better as well.) We should try to get more of us in this general area together and have a meet-up. I think that would be awesome. :)

    Definitely, brother. Your kids are awesome. I could've chatted all night as well. I'll be through your area again soon.

    We'll have to make more time and should have other forum members join us! Much better to see cars up close, compare notes and make new friends.

    Plus I'll have the car washed, too :p

    Finished the headlight mod this weekend. Painted the chrome in that housings satin black, upgraded to hid's and added halos and led switchbacks. One of the resistors on the halos was faulty so they are sending me a new one. But the switchbacks look pretty decent. Kind of tough to see the amber during the day but I've still got the one on the mirrors so screw it lol. Tried to spray the amber lens inside the housing with nite shades and it melted the plastic so don't try to do that. Ended up taking another day to build it back up, sand and paint black.

    First mod to the car was getting my wheels done in glossy black. Up next is blacking out the chrome trim on the grill, doors, and trunk!

    Personally I think the remaining pieces of chrome make the vehicle look nicer. Makes the black really stand out.

    I know a lot of people like the chrome trim, but I personally can't stand chrome on any cars. Not sure why, but I've always had a thing against chrome, just seems to be on every car/motorcycle everywhere and I don't want any part of that :p

    I have a feeling it's because almost every car/motorcycle I see has chrome everywhere. But, who knows, I just like to be different, heh
