You have to upload it to a photosharing site like photobucket or facebook... then do what you did above, except put the URL in the img things instead of the location of where it is on your computer.... easiest way is photobucket for beginners imo.

I took my Ranger for a drive to the local Salvation Army Thrift Store. While there, I found a new office chair for sitting at my computer. It was a like new black vinyl high back chair, I'm guessing new would cost $2-300. They had it marked for $89, I decided to get it because it looked great and is super comfortable and supports my back very well. I got to the register and the girl said it had been on the floor for a couple of weeks and was eligible for a 25% discount...so after tax I got it for $72 !! Becaue I drove my Ranger there, I was able to put the chair in my truck bed and take it home right away !!

My old chair was wobbly and giving me back problems, my back already feels better. I wasn't planning on buying a new chair today, but it just worked out way.

I finally got time to drop the tranny pan and change the filter--what a Muckin' Fess! It looked like somebody was murdered in my driveway, but I'm glad that I filnally got it done, since I had the tranny flushed last summer. I also sprayed my billet insert with some Plasti-Dip and worked on the PowerDome a bit.

Started re-painting the frame and suspension bits--first show is in less than 3 weeks. Swapped the RS9000s back on, cleaned underhood, and got a couple of coats of primer on the PowerDome

Drove the 150 over to show the father in law and got to see my ranger just sitting in the driveway, dirty , bird crap on it, looking at me like it was crying... I need to go get it and work on the little stuff and sell it to some high school kid that will love it as much as I did when it was new... ( not that I don't still , but you know what I mean)

At the end of the day my interior looked like this. Getting started on my next projects which is, vinyl floor, black interior and a little project which is going to combine VH5150 and Doody ideas with a little touch of my own.

Just ordered a pair of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/JBL-GTO-804-...item2a1c8ea3d4

Next week I'm ordering this to go with them http://www.ebay.com/itm/JBL-GTO-3501...5acc31&vxp=mtr

Then soon after I'm gonna get 2 pairs of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/JBL-6X9-600W...ccaca6&vxp=mtr





And as you can see my windows look dark tinted from the outside, but on the inside you can see clearly out. It's 20% over factory, It comes down to around 8-10%
