still can't upload photos today.. arrgh!

When I removed the v6 from the S3, I split the engine/box in siu when removing it (damaged clutch plates) - was soooo tight.  Returning it.. attempted to do so as one unit.  Over 3 frustrating hours later it's installed!  Next time I will remove the fibreglass body and drop the engine in... so much easier!!

Open your photo in window photo manager, and click edit, change size to large web and save this should work.
If not PM me

I can't change my profile picture either, Mark, but other people seem to be able to - Steve Kerswell changes his every other week.

Welcome to the gang, Mark. I'm in Bristol, so about 70 miles away. You are about midway between myself and Steve Kerswell in Plymouth. Post some photos when you get a chance.
