Picture insert

After you select the image, click send and wait for the three links it shows, copy the middle one, its a bunch of HTML code, paste it below your message and then click preview of post, it should be there. That's under the Host button. The insert button works if the image already has a URL and you are copying it from another website, etc. always better to copy and save to your machine and then host and post to forum....if you put multiple images, just stack those HMTL codes below your message, they always appear after where the cursor is.

Looks good. The floor boards look ok in the front and the roof and gutters look just fine

It does appear to be rock solid, no holes anywhere. One side door hinge has seized and cracked the panel around it but no big deal.
It needs a few of small jobs doing, but nothing major. It runs and drives, but the carb needs some attention. I've picked up two 70's VW van bench seats over here which I'll fit to make it an 8-seater. I've bought a manual steering arm to do away the power steering (we Brits aren't too keen on power steering) and a windshield seal as the sun's pretty much killed the old one.
I'm going to keep the sun-bleached sand-blasted patina as-is, just clearcoat it to protect it from the shock of coming to Wales. It's also going to get some serious underbody rust protection!
It's from a member on here, I won't name him in case he wants to keep it quiet but he's been great to deal with and very helpful.

its super straight and solid..i totally regret selling it, but too many projects. i feel like i could have made a bit more money on the van but Pauls been super enthusiastic and im glad its going to a good home. hoping it makes the journey intact, the driver didnt speak a lick of english and it seemed a little sketchy driving it up on the back if the carrier...should be on a boat soon i imagine..
