    oh and you might want to start a photobucket account and use it to make your pictures big in line instead of the attatched thumbnails.

    Or just upload them through Tw, makes it easier in my opinion.

    Just click your Username in blue bold in the top right corner, click on the camera emblem and you can upload them directly to the site. :cool:

    And by the way when you say that it wont stay clean for long, does that mean this is going to be one of those builds where you paint everything black with a spray can and then proceed to slowly destroying it in mud holes? Those threads make me sad.
