Sadly, Photobucket has deprived the Forum's archive of many prized images, in the pursuit of more cash. When you're able to restore the bumped off images, this thread will have a real Lazarus moment!
Welcome back. :thumbup:

Just recently went into Photobucket and downloaded all of my pics I had there and closed my account. Screw them. All of the ads they run made it very difficult to get anything done.

Hi there Herman, call me Gordon ,Your welcome, I like so many would be in the background before joining the Forum picking up knowledge and experience, I learnt a lot from the post's and picture stories that were here. Just seems a shame a lot of the picture stories were ruined. If someone learns just one small detail from this build it goes some way to re-paying the effort of those that built before us and the information I picked up.

Regards Gordon
