I guess this is just a "diary" of what goes on. so, I'll start chiming in if interesting things happen to me.

Unfortunately, that will mean that I will spend even more time on this forum
You have a lot of reading to do to catch up!

Thank you... I wanted to make sure people knew who you were talking about.

That 87Trooper guy stops by once in awhile - so does TacoBell, Darly, and Brain.

Mike! We've chatted on other threads, but this is my home base (so to speak).
We try to stay on topic (of Mustangs), but occasionally stray to call each other names (like Tom). But, it's all in good fun here, no real flaming allowed.

Thanks everyone for the welcome, and thanks Tom for the invite.

BTW I don't like when people flame me on threads, so I extend the same courtesy to others.

It seems like this is will be an enjoyable thread to get onto friendly chat vs. just posting issues/concerns as the other sections of the forum are

Here's a short vid posted my Tom (not our Tom) on the 3 finished X-Chargers yesterday.

Looked like a long day for those guys, but happy they got all 3 up and running!

Thanks for the welcome. I have been a lurker of TMS since I got the car back in Oct 05. As you can see from my profile, I just joined recently. Since I spent most of my time just reading the posts anyway, I figured it was time to finally start posting myself.

I guess my post count is going to increase even more rapidly now

BTW, Tom or Bill, could you tell me how to get the dividers for each mod in your sig. I don't have links like y'all do, but would like to have better separaters than the comma's. Everything just seems to blur together on my sig.

Just copy and paste one out of our sigs:

But now you have to start a free Photobucket account and link your mods so we can see them all!! Adding my Aeroform bar right now.

In the voice of the Guinness commercial: BRILLIANT!!. You can see my new sig below. It looks a lot better.

In regard to the Photobucket account: I honestly don't like doing "free accounts" for anything online, because they *usually* sell your email addy to someone to give junk email. Photobucket may not do that, but I just don't want to deal with it, or other issues that may come up.

So, currently, I just upload the pics through the message forum. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to "reuse" the image on another thread. I want to re-use the URL from the attachment off the TMS thread, but when I do the "insert image", it doesn't seem to work.

So, instead, I have to upload the image everytime I want to have it.

Maybe you or someone else could assist me in that as well?? Or, maybe TMS's forum doesn't let you link to one of it's own picture attachments?

I hope that makes sense

Yes, all V6 guys. Don't know what their total HP output is now, but I'm guessing they can give a stock GT a run for their money.

But, I will say this: if anyone wants to see a specific pic, just let me know and I will upload it to the thread, or provide a link to it off of TMS's thread.

IMO, I would have to upload it either way, whether it be to photobucket or TMS

Maybe it would be better to just provide a link to the specific post where I have the pic? Like what Tom and Bill do, but instead of photobucket, it is TMS?

They just added a few more specials on eBay:

Can you believe that's the same item as this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2005-...spagenameZWD1V

That's a $136.35 savings! I'll call on Monday to ask if they can ship it quickly so I'll have it in time for the FFW. Kinda hard to ask for expedited shipping when it's free, though. I'm sure if they ship it Monday or Tuesday, I'll have it Friday from MO.
I totally forgot to tell you: Ask them to provide some of their "aeroform" emblems. They will help bring the red from the seats to the bar some.

Here are a few pics: 1 without the emblem, 1 with the emblem (hard to see...it's on the front-half of the face, about 1 inch up; this will give you an idea of the size), and close-up of the emblem (to show the details; the background is black, the color is red). I personally think it looks good, and also provides free advertising for them. Also, they provide them for free, which is also good

To see ultra close ups of the pic, open the thumbnail, and then click the picture again to enlarge it once more (as if you didn't already know that anyway )

Simple solution...
Open up a free Yahoo e-mail account and sign-up with PhotoBucket using that e/m account. Junk mail problem solved.

That's what I did and I haven't had even one junk email. So, either Photobucket doesn't sell the emails or Yahoo is really good at blocking spam (or treat).
