    man that looks SICK /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif if i were anywhere close to you i would be having you do something similar as we speak. that is definately i know your the guy who does it professionally but how much would something like that cost the average joe if say i did all the tapeing for the flames?

    Probably in the neighborhood of $1200.00. it is VERY labor intensive. I had to sand the whole vehicle just like I was gonna paint it, only this "paint" won't scratch /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    This is what I was thinking about for mine, not sure if it would be worth it, I'll probably end up getting the whole thing done in black but here is a photoshop of my original plan.

    yeah, I was gonna do mine all one color, but we already did my buddy's F-250 all blue, so I wanted to be different /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    My brothers friend is going to shoot mine for a small price, the thing is the price doubles if he does the flames and it will cost about $150 more in materials to do another color. I figure though I'll only do it once because I can't imagine taking the stuff off to change it.

    The easiest way is to click the "Image" link in the Instant UBB Code box that is directly under the box that you type your post in. Just copy the image link by right clicking the photo and copying the url, then paste it in the box that appears when you click on the "Image" link. Confused? I know I am.

    To post A Picture:

    Upload the picture to cardomain or your ck5 gallery. Right click on the picture and click on properties on the window tht comes up. When the properties window pops up, Copy the URL link (website address) and then close it. Go into ck5 forum, click on image and paste the full link in there. then it should work.
    If you using webshots you can only post a link. They won't let directlinking from there site.

    The link you pasted isn't a photo, it looks like it's a link to the webpage. You need to right click on the photo and go to properties, then copy the link that is displayed on the property page. Try it like that.
