I posted some instructions earlier in your build how to get pics showing on the forum from your hosting account.  It's just a tad different from what I thought was "normal" but once the first is done as I showed, just a copy and paste job.  If you can upload to imbb or whatever then it's no stress on mayhem account or your computer, actually it's better you have your own account as you have more control and it takes the heat off here as a forum rather then a pic hosting site which usually incurs more costs.  You can of course just post an "attachment" each post rather than a weblink?


Great build so far by the way.
