Default got my 1960 430 'Bird PAINTED!!!

Finally got my thunderbird painted. been working on this car 4 years now. I took out the rusted tight 353 and luckily found a 430 from a 59 bird. All I had to do to the 430 is put new rings, lifters and timing chain.
I painted it Monte Carlo red, an original color. The intrior is the dark and light blue, so I am painting it with the vinyl paint. Works good. Now has red and black interior. I just bought a pair of cruiser bubble skirts for it, will post a picture when I get them installed.I want to than ALL the guys and girls n here for the help and inspiration given me.Thankyou.

Hi Henry,

Once you have your pix uploaded to Photobucket you should have a URL showing in the Photobucket window. Highlight that link and do a copy of it. Bring up this thread in Squarebirds and create a new post. In the legends at the top of this you should see, right below a white smiley face, a blue globe of the world with what looks like binoculars at the bottom of it. This the Insert Link icon. Click on it, backspace out the http:// and paste your url link from Photobucket into it. Click OK and you should see that link show up on your post as a clickable link that should take us to the pictures. If you need more help, call me.
