Thanks for the help

I was able to resize some pics of my '01 500. I appreciate the references.

1) You might need to re-size the picure file due to file size restrictions.

Google the words PicPerk.

It is free software that you can import your digital picture file. Resize it. Save the file as a different name.

I found that resizeing to 800 x 600 worked good for posting.

2) Going from memory here ... when posting look for at the bottom of the screen for"Additional Options" where there is "Manage Attachments" which allows you to browse your directories to attach the re-sized picture file.

why thank you. BUT, i broke the glass on the black hard top (1,300 bucks to fix!), so i just got the center of the red top painted black, and i got double-limo tint on the hard top, and limo on the front windows. so its a diffrent look, but i did like the blak top on the red car.

no i got her 100% stock. the handling is a lot better because the center of gravity is like 3 inches lower, and i put Bilistine sport shocks on her. the ride is a little rougher, but not to bad, altho with the lowering job and the 19's is as rough as i would like to get right now.

oh, and just a little FYI if u get a 129 "sport" the suspention is the same as on a normal one, its just that they cut the springs to give it a moer agressive stance, the 129 springs are OK to cut, unline many other autos where the ride really gets compromised.
