Guy,
Looks good and I'm pleased to see it working, only downside for me is I'm not, & never intend to be a facebook member Roll Eyes
Good luck.

Thanks Brian,

Your remark about Facebook reminds me of the jokes about being engaged as opposed to married: "You don't have to go into the shop - you can just look in the window", or "You don't have to ride the bicycle, but you can still ring the bell"!  Grin

Once RetroPart picks up momentum I'll launch a webpage, and probably also sell on eBay - where you can really risk you neck.  Roll Eyes

Brian, I just tested it now without even logging in to Facebook.  

You can see all the 'bits and bobs', but you cannot 'connect' without being a Facebook member.  Roll Eyes

We have added some more parts to our Items for Sale - 3 times now!  Huh?  Mysteriously these seem to disappear and reappear at random!

We also added 50 pictures of rare machinery seen yesterday at Angela's Picnic, among them a few Lancias, and even a Chrysler.  Grin

I've changed the spelling of 'chrysler' to begin with a capital C in my post above 3 times, but it continues to revert to a lowercase letter.  Huh?

Now I'm wondering if Chrysler is a banned word on the Forum?  Grin

See, it reverts to chrysler - let's try Khrysler.

Should be ok now ... Chrysler chrysler ChRySlEr Ch**sl** C****** Smiley

It's a great idea though, I saw one of the 3D laser scanning / carving  (printing?) things at a model show last year and thought how good it would be for re-making broken bits ....
