Allright matt... get yourself an account here. http://photobucket.com/ Sign in with facebook makes it easy to remmeber your log in details..

Upload the photos you want to put on here on to photobucket.

When you want to insert an image into the 16valve site.. you click on "Insert image"
it will ask you "Please enter the URL of your image:" Starting with http:// You can find the URl on the image you uploaded onto photobucket Its called "Direct link" click on that and it will copy and paste if it don't copy and paste it into the little box where it asks you to put URL then click ok

Hope this helps.

Hallam

The seats I have in my mini, who lent out to a mate for a while. Got them back. I'm highly suspicious they will not clear the gear stick, so they have to be sold off to buy smaller seats.
