    I have already completed the Basic SS 1000 frame. I purchased the plans on CD from Jody @ Protodie, Really good and easy to follow, highly detailed. I used a JD2 tubing notcher which allowed me to make every joint and offset notch the plans called for; a great tool. I purchased the 200' of steel tubing (1 1/2 .095 erw) @ the local metal shop in 20' sticks. I asked around and found a guy who races at the local dirt track who has a tubing bender and we worked out a deal. So here is what I have come up with so far...

    I have reams of pictures of the frame build. I formated the jpg's to 640 x 480 pixels, they are under 200 KB when I try to attach them the attachment manager says upload failed. What do I need to do to post pics?

    Use photobucket download you pics there and then click the link on the photobucket website it will automatically copy it. Then click the yellow square with the mountain on it in the reply and paste the link in there. Thats all!

    For an attachment, largest dimension on pics has to be 600 or under. that will give you a clickable thumbnail link. P-bucket is the easier way to go once you get used to it.

    I had issues with attaching as well. Anymore I find it most convenient just to use my iphone.

    Steps are:
    1) Take photo with iphone
    2) Use "simple resize" app to reduce to 640x480 or as desired. Select from library and select 640x480.
    3) Use "uploadr" app, it uploads to the public imageshack server and then copies the url to the cliboard.
    4)In post click on the image icon or type the IMG tags and paste the url.

    Works really slick and no need for a computer..just to apps on the phone.

    Alternatively, I use my wordpress blog to upload media then copy/paste he url but only after I download/resize from my camera. The iphone and apps is super fast.

    I like to use photo bucket as well. Up load your pictures, then choose which you want to post on here. It will look like this screen.


    On the right bottom corner there is a white circle with an " i " in it, click it and it will look like this screen.



    Click the IMG and it will say "copied" then come to minibuggy and paste. It sounds confusing but once you do it once it's no big deal. Doing it this way there is no resizing involved, no icons on minibuggy to click on, nothing! Copy and paste. Good luck!
