    Can't believe how neat and well fitted your gates are. I caught up with my DC yesterday and my guys have struggled with getting them to fit right. They were focusing on the remainder of the DC and didn't fit the gates early. It's casing them all sorts of problems now as they are now going to have to go back and redo a few things.

    Yours look really good.

    Roof was in pretty bad shape and needed new metal in each corner,also felt like someone had walked over it at some point so plenty of time beating it back into shape before epoxy

    Hi Surf bus,
    Time to look at photo hosting. Unwise anywhere other than your computer. Try this.
    https://pixlr.com/editor/ very intuitive. Open image. Go 'Save' (top left). Adjust as necessary to get size required (under 600kb for this site). Where parking (on your computer & then where posting)? Job done. Simples. Now just 'full image' or 'thumbnail'.
    Cheers

    Hi Surf bus,
    It's on site hosting from your own computer! Choose image & in the 'reply function' choose upload image. It needs to be less than 600kb so if it needs resizing use this https://pixlr.com/editor/ & save back & then post. Can choose 'full image' or 'thumbnail' & that's just how 'logged in', or not, members see it.
    No off site stuff.
    Cheers

    Surf Bus - stop using photobucket for your picture hosting as they BAN 3rd party hosting unless you pay them USD400 per annum.

    Use the Upload a File icon next to Post Reply in the bottom right corner and then choose photo direct from your computer - select Full Size Image and you're done.

    If you get the following after posting picture using photobucket - go in and edit your post by clicking on the image and after .jpg type ~original then insert then save the edit and you should get the picture posted (this is a work around and may @ sometime return to facility being disabled)

    I'll fix the latest pics then from NOW on it's up to you :eek:

    It's a Photobucket designated block on forum pictures being posted as 3rd Party website AND the forum software can not be tweaked or freaked to over ride the block on pictures put in place by botophucket :confused:
