    Just wanted to see if I could really do this.

    My front springs are from SI; I believe they are listed as "HD". I think that's all they sell. They barely made a difference in how my car sat. The "old" springs were put in during the 'driver' restoration ('93-'95). I don't think they'll make your car sit too high up front, especially with a Stude V8 in the engine bay!
    Thanks Bill!

    When I got new front springs from Stephen Allen's a year or so ago (maybe a little longer), they had regular and HD front springs, but the HD's were a little cheaper; probably because more people bought those and the tooling cost was lower. If I could find new rear springs, I'd grab them. When Stephen's was still in business, I called down there and asked them. I was told they weren't available then.

    Yeah, it's the right pic. I was just making fun of myself!

    By the way, your '60 convertible looks terrific!

    In answer to Matthew, I think the "nose down" attitude of my '63 is due to:

    1) 195 x 75 radials (close to original size tires)
    2) I had the rear leaf springs re-arched (re-arced?) and they are a tad high, making the front look a bit low. Even with new front springs, that's the way she sits! I wish the rear was a tad lower.

    Bill,
    I think your car sits just right. I thought the previous post was just joking about your hood being up a little and making the rest of the front clip look lower! I had the new HD front springs from Myer's on my last '60 and it sat way too high; not sure what happened. To everyone else, you have to see this rare car of Bill's to appreciate it-beautiful...here's another test (before I found my NOS '60 grill badge; I tried a later smaller, lark only emblem in the 59, 61 location)

    Don, I haven't tried the batch effort on my Mac, but I just drag them to the desktop and upload them into photobucket from the desktop file and adjust size at that time. I haven't had any luck editing the size after the upload. You should be able to highlight them all, click and drag them as a group into the bulk loader, though.

    Bill, did you use heavy duty or standard front springs? I bought the HD ones, and I'm hoping the car won't sit too high with those...

    Where can I get the rears re-arched? Are new or NOS ones not available?

    I LIKE the nose down stance. [^]

    Don,

    Does your Photobucket not have a "bulk loader" link? There is one
    under my inital 3 files to down load and then it asks me if I have
    a lot?....Course I have a PC and not an Apple, so I don't if the
    applications are different?

    Thanks for all of the info on how to include photos. But I still have
    a (Mac) question. I set up a Photobucket account to collect images that I would like to submit to this forum. How can I batch send images that I have in iPhoto into the Photobucket album? I've tried the shift, Ctrl and Alt buttons when clicking on the wanted images, including clicking on the 1st of several images and then clicking on the last to try to include, say a batch of 20 photos, but it does not work. What am I doing wrong. Thanks

    Don C.

    One thing I have been doing for years (as a suggestion from Rick Courtier).....
    I take all my pic's at the highest resolution my camera can take.
    (Big memory chip, with the original as a spare).
    Then, when I transfer them over to my 'puter, I copy them into the newly created, properly labeled file,
    and immediately make a subfile named 'small' and copy them again into that file.
    Then, using my photo editing program (I use Thumbs Plus), I go into that 'small' folder and do a 'batch convert'
    and re-size them all to 640x480.
    That way I can use anything out of the 'small' folder on the web and save the originals with no data loss.
    BTW, I have a separate huge USB hard drive just for pic's.
    Keeps the PC a whole lot less cluttered.
    Hope the info helps.

    I know someone here will probably make a mess of this suggestion, but its a pretty good one on digital pics:

    If you're going for a detailed, magazine shot and you want to post to the web, the higher the resolution you can set the camera, the better.
    Now this will make the picture extraordinarily large(you know the scroll across the screen type).
    But, by shrinking it to the 640 X 480 semi readable size, the picture should still come out as good
    as when it was when it retained its original oversized size.
    Conversely though, its harder to take a small picture and blow it up to 640 X 480 size with a digital picture,
    as the lower resolution could result in pixelating, blurring,
    and in general making the picture harder to view.
    The other thing is bigger can be better, but it can also swallow your memory pretty quick, so as they say "make the shots count", lol.

    Thanks Jeff. I'm using a Mac and dragging the URL and still working out the bugs. I appreciate the tips so I can do a better job next time. Sorry to be too rookie-like. I've got some nice car shots from that meet that I'd like to share later.

    Put each pic on it's own line...
    Not side by side.
    Separate the pic's by a blank line if you want some separation...
    Like this....
    Also...
    Keep your sentences on the short side, and start a new line for a new sentence.
    Easier to read on a forum.
    I 'copied' your sentence and split it and put it underneath as an example.
    Hope the info helps.
