hello,

Mr X .... what did you mean ??? "photobucket keeps cutting the right hand side off my pics as well!!! any ideas anyone???" translate!

Your Malaga Ramen S1 provides the framework that I have very similar.

Many work before the first drive can start.

Alright Tom, although I like the name Mr X my names Liam.

This photobucket thing: I upload my pics and they display perfectly on that website but when I copy the IMG code to this forum and click submit or preview approximately a third of the pic on the right hand side has gone. I mean this pic on this post was taken front on with both wheels and everything, but it hasn't come out, any ideas?

if you click on this link it displays it correctly.....any ideas????


And yes there’s still a bit to do before I can test drive it at my local disused airfield, but I’m not thinking of bodywork, just the mechanics of the beast. my idea is to do a lot of shake down testing at this airfield to ensure it'll all stay together and works and then start on finishing the bodywork. All I need is the prop altering, the brake pipes finishing and the clutch bleeding and it should drive. I don't exactly mean well to be honest as it wont have to new suspension and wheels / tyres I still need, but still drive!

The image cut off issue is a quirk with the phpbb software - I will be sorting this out along with alot of other changes to the forums :)

To view the full image for now its possible just to right click on the image and select 'view image' or it's equivalent in your browser.

Cheers
