Oh wow, an update!!  :)

 

Im like dean with this one.

Loved it from the get go. 

Shame about the injury's at work, not good to hear.

Look forward to you getting back into it to finish it off.

The coupe looks ok, much body rust?

Looks like you trailerd it straight from 1985  :wink_2:

i don't know of a way other than saving all the photos and re fitting them to the thread via another host.
back when photobucket did it the last time i got the shits proper, went to photobucket and saved the whole lot(can't remember how) and have put them back via imgur as needed into various places.

be a shame to lose this thread, but this forum has gone down a few times over the years and most people went to ozfalcon.com.au .infact, the main reason i come back to xfalcon is to check in on your thread and check the new posts(rarely more than half a dozen.) 

 

if you did happen to be able to save all photobucket photos, you may be able to at least put a link in to view the WHOLE ALBUM on imgur.com for this thread. 
i'll ask on ozfalcon if anyone has any ideas and let you know if anything better turns up.. but i'd definitely save all the photos before June if i were you

i deleted My photobucket account in disgust, so cant check if it's done the same this time. but i would expect if you google backing up your photobucket pics before closing your account you should be able to do it

lookin good.

 I've just finished a BA-FG front end conversion into my XE also. It's a lot of work, different to yours but some similarities too. I've also chopped the tunnel to fit the ZF6 auto like it was meant to be.

I don't want to do it again because time. 900 ish pics don't want to do it again

i am thinking you might be better off making a dupicate "page" on facebook, you can link the photos from there also. 
copy image location, and insert here

here is an example of My old XF ute (long gone now) hosted on facebook (taken at Devonport Tas many years ago)

as a link first, then inserted using the photo image icon
