    Thanks to Photobucket, I can't see the size of the rivets you used I'm getting (mentally) prepared to replace my roof, and I'm finding all the tools I'll need. Your guide here has been super helpful, but again thanks to Photobucket, could you tell me what size rivets you used?

    Before Photobucket turned to PhotoF-ckit, I added 3/16" medium aluminum rivets to my tool list on Amazon. Is that the right size? Thanks for this guide!

        No pics will come back unless you upgrade your account and sign up for a plan.
        I'm slowly downloading all my albums and will close my 13-year old account and looking for another option.

        They can go photof*k themselves. THEY WONT HAVE MY MONEY.

        Holding your pictures hostage for money is not the right way to gain customers!!

          Ya photophooket stinks. The pics are still viewable through the direct link in the first post. Eventually I will move the pics to another host but I don't have time right now. This website can have complete free use of the pics if it helps, would be nice to make them permanent.

            There's a TEMPORARY solution to the photo bucket mess.
            PHOTOBUCKET EXTENSION AVAILABLE FOR FIREFOX AND CHROME!!!
            see http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/show...65&postcount=1
            Don't count on it working for long though. You can assume the Photobucket people will break it at some point.

            You can move your photos to flickr, but you'll need to update each link, which really sucks. Just did it for some of my threads.

            This thread is really important to the community - if you don't have another option I'm willing to edit the links for you. PM me and we'll figure something out.

                i've downloaded all the photos and the DIY text. we can create a doc for badcab from that. if/when @James Crivelone finds a pic hosting/archiving solution we can pull everything into it.

                I'll add an archive link to this post when i get some time to do so. did the same with the xworks "m3 minor rust repair" diy a while back.

                  Isn't it crazy now ..photo-f**k-it use to be great but now way to many ads and takes for ever to do any thing....
                  they should of left what we had and then charge us for additional pics..and then i might of paid for extra GB's for more pics..

                  And I'm sure it's affecting millions of customers too that are pissed...

                  Have a great day..

                    I'm looking to see if replacing my top myself is possible. Any update on the pictures with the DIY posts by the OP? Thanks!

                      Link to photobucket is no longer working - did anyone download the pictures in a shareable format? Looking to replace my top in the next couple of weeks.

                      Thanks!
