Default Pats Z300 build

Right hopefully I've cracked the picture posting.
I'll start with a piccy of the base car, it's a 1.9 narrow body for 1100 including travel to Swansea and driving back selling off the bonnet and other bits the total came to 970. I've got to get this picture thang cracked

Assuming the photos you want are already shown on another website, right click over the image and 'copy' the URL then create your message here and type '[IMG]' then paste the URL and after it type '[/IMG]'.

You should be able to edit your earlier effort to make sure it's in this format.

Good luck

Patton - It looks like you have a lot of stuff before the actual image location which is causing your problem. The bit you need is just - http://i1127.photobucket.com/albums/...esized/Z34.jpg

If you use Chrome as your browser you can simply right-click on the picture and select "Copy Image URL" you then put [ img] but without the space, paste in the URL (CTRL-V) and then [/ img] again without the space

thanks guys, Chris is going to stick some more on here and the Z3 is a lovely drive but that compares to the spyder and a jago geep. The spyder is going to be painted for early next year slowly coming back together........

Hi,
Are you intend to leave your car in silver? I'm thinking of a z300s In silver.

Best regards

Hi Hutson, yes the original BMW colour with 2 black stripes like a dodge viper, I've some pictures but as you can see from the begining of the thread I'm having trouble uploading them. It's not painted yet but I'm using it daily to find any niggles before the paint goes on early next year, regards PAT

Hi Pat, that will look great! I would like to change the mirrors (http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-CHROME-UNI...-/181499953281) and put on bolt on wire wheels. I am not sure about the rear lights, they must wear an E mark on the continent. I'll fallow your project as I am intend to start mine next year (retirement).
Regards, Walter

Walter hi, I have a set of those mirrors but they are not very good as mirrors but look good on the car still trying to find the best place on the doors or forward on the wings, my rear lights are BMW from a 2002 with a red lamp in the drivers side clear lens as a fog lamp,I'll try and get some more pictures on later cheers Pat..

Pat - If you put your mirrors on the door then mount them further back than on mine. I have to use a small child's hand to fit the bolts inside the doors. Also the passengers side is purely cosmetic unless you want to look at the pavement behind you as you drive.

Bad luck Pat, my clutch failed while I was paying for dyno time so I know how you feel.

It started with a bit of a squeak, it's not just the thrust bearing it has destroyed the plate, cover, the duel mass flywheel (all the rivets rolled out the bell housing) and the thrust bearing housing tube on the gearbox, I'll still be at Chris 'n' Dans on Friday...
