Hello Yves,
I just started using Postimage.ORG. Its easy to create an account, upload images and post them to a forum - so far anyway.

Looking forward to seeing you build progress.
Bob

Well, I fear that no picture hoster can offer his services for free over years and years. Either he needs being paid sometimes or he disappears from the market........
kind regards
Gerhard

Great to see some pictures again! Glad it worked for you. Unfortunately any forum thread which used Photobucket hosting in past is now disabled until the user pays Photobucket or finds another way to host (ie reload all images).

Gerhard - I totally agree. I was hoping the Photobucket price scheme would allow some hosting at all price points. But they got greedy it seems and only allow it at most expensive price. Which makes lower price plans worthless in my opinion. I'm not opposed to paying something for the service. Not sure why they would allow hosting all these years for free anyway if its going to make them go out business. Seems a poor business model from the start.

Thanks Phil,

It was a lot of work to fit every thing, i know where i put the smoker,
modules and the speakers, the speakers can not put in the back sides of the panther,
so they come in the middle on the battery trey, the sound module comes at the front between the
motors, the motion module comes on one of the batterys.

If you position the speakers either side of the engine bay facing the engine but under the fuel tanks and cooling fans (sound holes cut into the engine bay walls) then the sound will come from the engine bay just like the real thing! When you lift the engine hatch the engine sound will increase nicely ...Phil.

Great progress there, I am thinking of doing an engine bay myself.
Is it not possible to fit the speakers along side the engine bay ?
Regards
Steve

Hello Phil and Steve,
no it is not possible if you have an engine compartment to put the speakers
at the side, i already dit a test fit, the speakers are a little to high ( 1cm )
Maybe i can cut a square out of each side of the engine compartment, maybe then i can try
to fit the speakers next to the engine bay.

You would need to source naked speakers to fit the space , I have done this with a tiger 1 and it sounds great!
