Lots, the interior needs sorting out, sound system fitting, dash fitting, refit the tank guard or build a suitable defuser, make the radiator shroud, plumb in the oil coolers and power steering cooler, refit the rear wing, wipers, and a whole lot of flat polishing.

Yes, i will remove some parts, but at the moment due to lack of space, the best and safest place to store stuff is on the car. Also the easiest way to install the engine is to jack / lift the car up and lower it over the engine.

Takes my breath away, Nial, comparing (in my mind) that picture with the one where you had just mounted it onto your first 'rotisserie'!

It's a thing of beauty, a work of art and love!! BE PROUD!

Congratulations, my friend!

Oh well, you can thank photobuckets new "no third party links" policy for killing all the pictures on this thread. All the pictures now appear to be gone. Sorry all. I guess thats the end of that.

Additional information on what is going on at photobucket is available at a website called --- downdetector.com.

A typical comment posted on downdetector.com:

Mary Anne Reid 22 days ago

For those of you who have no clue what is going on with PB, they have disabled all 3rd party links unless you are willing to pay $400 a year. What that means: If you run a blog, forum, ebay, etc. page/website and you embed your pics via the 3rd party link option, they are no longer viewable. This has caused extreme outrage and everyone scrambling to attempt to download their albums to salvage their pictures to move to another photosharing website. Visit their Facebook page for more info.

That is one of a great number of comments from outraged customers of Photobucket.

Now, as to your images during the years you have been working on your project, no one would expect you to laboriously rebuild your 'build thread', so it looks as if we are all SOOL, unless someone was to do something to reverse Photobucket's actions, such as file a class action suit to get Photobucket to turn 3rd party links back on. It seems to me that what they have done either is illegal (extortion), or should be made illegal, because the hurt to all of us is quite difficult to absorb or understand. How can anyone continue using the Internet constructively if the very basis disappears? Sorry that it happened to your build in particular, Nial, because I have followed your work since almost day one, and found it truly inspirational.

Or maybe this website owner could negotiate with Phtobucket and come back to all of us to let us decide whether to pay whatever they may demand. At least this would give us an option.

The $400/year at Photobucket gives an account capable of 500 gigabytes of photo storage, with 3rd party linkage, fast bandwidth and no advertisements. Photobucket seems to have been intentionally signalling their move for some time by slowing down operations of all free accounts and sticking so many ads in your face that you could hardly navigate. Individuals would choose giving up rather then face that Photobucket system.

Judging from all the bad comments I found on downdetector.com, people are thoroughly frustrated and want off the Photobucket system as fast as possible. And, remember, Photobucket's 'come on' at first was free image hosting, but they provided easy ways to imbed photos into THIRD PARTY WEBSITES, such as ours. Ethically speaking, due to their 'bait and switch' attitude, they ought to grandfather all people who used their system to THIRD PARTY link to on-line fora, and there must be a great many that have used Photobucket that way up until now. Likely, what they are doing now is what they planned from the get-go, cause they wanted to make money.

If Photobucket would provide help to consolidate all individual accounts making up any single on-line forum into one $400/year account, and all members of that forum contributed whatever small amount would be required if the cost was distributed over the entire membership it would take to make up that cost, keeping our images on Photobucket would be far better than the service we currently get (or don't get). After all, no matter where we get on-line photo storage, it costs someone to provide that storage, and eventually we would have to begin paying something.

Consider also the notion of providing that image storage on our own website, run by Coomer. Would members be willing to help Coomer deal with that cost, or the costs he has already borne? When is it ethically right for people to feel they should 'pay' for services they receive on the internet that they are used to getting for free?

It seems to me that the information gathered on our website has intrinsic value that needs to be added to the commonwealth of value to be used by all who need it. Maybe that's not politically correct thinking, but that's how it appears to me.

I said all that because I cannot sleep thinking of the harm being done to our 6GC website by the decision made by Photobucket, along with the way they went about enforcing their need to 'monitize' their website, and my mind keeps searching for a solution that would resurrect our valuable collection of information on the 1994-1999 Toyota Celicas and doing the least harm in the process. Members are already trying to off-load their photos and going to alternate hosting sites. Maybe we could find a 'principal' at Photobucket with whom we could negotiate who would entertain a solution to our problem, one that would apply to all others in similar situations?

Your build thread is a great example of what we lose if we just give up.

I am sure if it was cheaper then people wouldnt mind paying for photobucket, but as it is they are more or less holding people to ransome. If i had the time i would remove all my photos from photobucket. Can i be bothered....or more likely, do i have the time to upload hundreds of photos back to another hosting site, then go through every forum and relink all the photos......errr, no! Its a shame as out of all the forums 6gc has the most complete history of my rebuild. Combine the photobuclet fiasco with the effect that facebook has had on forums i am suprised any have survived.

In time i will find a new hosting site amd crack on, but i am sorry that the history of this rebuilds pictures are gone for good. Although you arnt missing much, my rebuild has ground to a hault whilst i wait for the engine to get done......its away having the rotational mass balanced at the moment, actual rebuilding should start in about a month.
