My car

Well Iím finally done getting my car the way I want it to be.
I would like to thanks these forums and especially Philip at Parts shop for the help that they have given. Philip, I never would have been able to get the fog-lights mounted properly if it weren't for your help.

But now onto the pic's

First, the before shot... Just your average 89 420SEL without a grille with a whole lot of gap in the front wheel well. A fine car in any case.


And today:

Oh. If anyone happens to has a euro-spec 5.6 engine sitting in a corner, cluttering up their garage, I'll gladly take it off your hands :p

Must be only you can see them. I get a little box with a red X, try using the show picture function of right click and nothing happens. Perhaps they are still on your hard drive and not your web space.

Thanks Mike.
Thats what it is, they are on my hard drive......I kinda wondered about that.... Learn something new every day. I'm not very web literate.
I'm in the process of moving them to web space now.
I'll be back soon.

Clay, don't forget to edit the IMG tag for the pictures once they are moved to cyber space. If you don't, the tag will still search for your hard drive.

Well for the life of me I can't get these pictures to post... But the links do appear to work so that will do for now
Any idea's as to why they won't show up?

Because the tag has to start with the img in the squared brackets [ ] and end with /img in the same [ ] . You also have to have the www after http.

The link should look like [img ]http://www.your_isp.com/~your_log_in/file_name.jpg[/img ], except you will leave out the extra spaces within the squared brackets.

Finally! It appears the photos show up.....don't they?
I tried hosting on MSN, Yahoo, Tripod, and Lycos.

Lycos is the only one that worked out of the 4.
And to make it even stranger, Tripod is part of Lycos.

Thanks again Mike for your help

420 where did you get the wheels? If you don't mind me asking how much did the wheels and tires cost? It is a great looking car and I am thinking of an upgrade on the wheel for my car. I have a 91 560 SEL.

Thanks

Thanks for the compliments everyone.
Alseim, I got the wheels (AMG Monoblock II replicas) from bekkers www.bekkers.com for $200 a piece when I got them last November. I belive they have been reduced to $190 or so in the past few months. The tires were around $125 a piece I think.
