    Hello, I’m a new member from Raleigh, NC. I am just in the last stages of a Shelby Cobra build which I hope to complete as soon as the weather gets a little warmer. I’m in the finish stages of paint, so that is why I need some warm weather. I have been visiting this site for the past several weeks as I have had a long standing interest in VW based MG replicas ( I almost bought a MiGi kit back many years ago) and even though I haven’t finished my Cobra yet, I have been looking for an MG replica as a follow on project. I just purchased a FiberFab/MiGi car today and am planning on taking delivery sometime this next week. It will be awhile before I get to work on the car, but went ahead and bought the car since it was located close by. I’ll have questions I am sure once I get a chance to work on the car.

     
    Regards, Sam

    Welcome to you, Sam. I’m sure we’d love to hear and see some details of your Cobra build as well.

    Welcome to another Tar Heel TD afficionado.  Why not “come up and see me sometime” in New Bern.

    Welcome Sam. Glad to have you aboard. When you get the TD home some photos would be great! And photos of your cobra as well.

    Roy, I might come and see you. I come thru New Bern  on my way to my place over by Oriental. I’ll let you know when I’m coming that way and try to arrange to meet. I assume there is a way to PM you, but haven’t figured that out yet. I was going to try and post some pics of the Cobra here, but I can’t see how to load pics to this reply. Maybe someone can enlighten me.

    Ok..another question. I uploaded 3 pics, but only 2 posted so I assumed the thrird pic exceeded the size limit. So, I thought I’d just reply again and post a couple more pice, but when I did the second reply and clicked on the tree, the three pics I tried to load before are still listed and I can’t get rid of them to post some additional pics…..????

    Sam, 

    I doubt your pictures exceeded any size limits set by the forum.  If you keep your shots at 480×640, you can post a bunch.  I also sometimes have trouble posting pictures, it seems that sometimes the forum just doesn’t want to work.  After I go away for a while, it usually becomes less cantankerous and everything’s ok.  (I usually like a more scientific explanation for things of this sort but am pragmatic enough to accept that the website is female and therefore  these quirks are quite normal.)

    Ok..same problem. When I tried again this morning and clicked on the tree, the pics I tried to load yesterday are still listed as ready to up load. How do I get rid of them so I can post new pics?

    It will keep loading new photos. I’ve never been able to clear them nor ever hit a limit of any sort.

    try minimizing the window you are in and the upload window should be behind it-just  hit ‘OK”     maybe…:P jebarry2013-02-10 11:05:55

    Try renaming the pictures you are trying to load before you post it here.
