Project Patch
« on: March 29, 2023, 09:36:36 AM »
So I got to FINALLY bring Patch home from the mechanics yesterday. Only reason it was at a shop was due to a.) there was things that I couldnt do in front of my apartment thanks to my land lord and b.) there were things I couldn't do since I didn't have the tools. I did however while it was down there get a few things done on my own that needed to be taken care of like exhaust and wiring along with some maintenance items. So now that its home I will get the things done to it that I need/want to get done. And so it begins  ;D

Thanks, still slot of maintenance things to take care of yet such as tune up, belts, shocks etc. Thinking of putting a toneau cover on it already found one that will fit, probably not gonna worry about the paint for right now though.

You might have to shrink them to fit.

Look on this site for software called pixresizer, works well.

Create two folders on desktop: full size, small size.

Save a copy of the pic to the desktop, open the picture, go to tools, adjust the size and change width and resolution to get it below 500 KB.

If you use windows just open it in paint and resize to 800x600.
