  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    Then i had the bright idea of painting the rims for that hotrod look !!
    everyone said it wouldnt work on top of the chrome but they were baddly pitted so i thought "what the heck" and gave it a go !!!
    i took all the spokes out to paint
    sanded down the chrome
    primmered and resprayed red
    re spokeing and trueing the repainted wheels was a nightmere :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
    [​IMG]

    all reassembled and chrome pollished and a retrim on the seat and she is all done !!
