If you right click on the pic and go to the properties tab you will get the actual link for the pic.

When you post a thread you get the option for an "Image" post the photo link in the image window.

That's it.

I think the treatment on the engine cases is a little much, but man does the tank and those wheels look good!

Where can I read up on how to do that to a tank? :-D That's about as unique as they come, but might not be so comfortable in California sun
