Well, after many many many years, I have my first automotive project. Whatever shall I do with it. So many decisions to make, but here is what I'm starting with. Looking forward to learning a lot from all the pro's on here.

How I did it (I used to write manuals lol)
  • Pull up your flickr pic you want to post.
  • On the right there's a picture of a box with an error off to the right top corner of it. If you put your mouse over it and don't click it says, "share this photo"
  • Click that box. At the bottom of the popup you'll see EMBED or HTML. Choose HTML.
  • Now look at the code that shows up. It looks like this
    Code:
    <a href="https://secure.flickr.com/photos/55926465@N00/13257027305/" title="Untitled by , on Flickr"><img src="https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3777/13257027305_f4c847bc02.jpg" width="500" height="281" alt="Untitled"></a>
  • Scroll to the right till you get to the part of the code that says <img src="
  • From that point you highlight it until you get to the end of the link. It ends in .jpg
    In my example pic the part we highlight and copy is this

  • Copy that link, come here and click the mountain picture with a sun on it, like this,

  • Paste that link and youre good to go!



Great looking truck too. Whats the story on her? Someone painted the engine recently that's for sure! In the pic it looks like you could eat off of it

Don't have her home yet. It originally belonged to my coworkers father in law, and then to him. Looks like they took pretty good care of it. Has the 305 which has been rebuilt, 4 on the floor. They did cover the bed with steel, so I will eventually reverse that. She seems to run good. Tailgate and mirrors are missing. Coworker now has 5 kids so he figured he would never get to getting it how he wanted it.

They have had fun with it as a family, even using it as prop for some wedding photos. The rear seal was leaking, and he had the new seal, so he is putting that on before I pick it up. Now I have to learn a lot and figure out how I want to finish her.

Oh, and I know she has Ford hubs, but don't crucify for that.

Nice truck looks like it has straight sheet metal that always helps when it's time to paint. Keep us posted on your progress we all love pictures thanks for posting them...Vernski

Solid looking truck. Will be watching to see where the project takes you. Working on 4-5-6 trucks is fun.
What are your plans?

Step 1: Learn all I can from you guys!

Step 2: Save up some money
Step 3: still got to figure it out...keep it stock? modernize it a bit (ps, pb)? color scheme? Right now the vision in my head keeps changing as I look at what others have done.

All I know now is progress will be slow.

Want her to look and run good, but I plan to keep her on the road, not hidden in a garage.

Welcome from the Black Hills! Great looking truck. You came to the right place to learn about these GMCs. The most knowledgeable folks on the net are right here and will help you out. I learn stuff every day to use when I add one of these trucks to my GMC family again.

Glad you are keeping it on the road while working on it!
