Hello everyone. Thanks for allowing me to join your forum. I'm very new to this. I recently bought a 1993 Hilux 2.2 Raider DC 4x4. So far I have done 1000km and I am very impressed. I'm sure that I will learn tons and tons of new and interresting stuff from everyone here.

Hi and welcome Andre! :thumbup:

A tough and reliable vehicle you have there, a donkey on the road but a rhino in the rough. Ask away here any questions you might have and also hook up with the guys in your area to attend outings - quickest and easiest way to get to learn the ropes. :winkx:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Thanks for the welcomes guys. It's been about 20yrs since I've been behind the wheel of a 4x4. Still need to sort some things on the bakkie before I'll be attempting any obstacles.
Believe me, I'll be very quick to ask when I get stuck.
Have a great day! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Henry just today mailed me to ask the same question. Here is a copy of the reply I sent to him .....


Signatures can be created / edited through your "User Control Panel". To access this click on the little down arrow next to your username in the top RHS corner of the page. In the dropbox click on "User Control Panel" then in the UCP select "Profile" and then "Edit Signature".

Here you can add some text if you like and / or your signature pics. Pics cannot be uploaded from here. You first have to upload them to an image hosting site and then paste the URL of the pic/s in the signature editing box. The URL must be between the image codes .... [img].

Photobucket no longer allows 3rd party hosting and have blocked it, so you would have to choose another site - or you can mail the pics to Pieter who will upload them onto the Hilux forum website and mail the URL/s back to you. You would have to prepare the pics first - he doesn't have the time to that for you.

Signature pics cannot be more than 120 x 600 pixels in size. This makes it a bit difficult to get reasonable resolution of the main subject with some pics that have a lot of background so you might have to crop before resizing. The best is to create one single signature pic that conforms to the size above before uploading to Pieter or a host site.

All pretty straight forward :D: but if you have a hassle let me know and I'll make a plan to help.
:winkx:

Thanks Andy. That makes a lot more sense.

Now, how do we get hold of Pieter?

Alternatively just load your correctly-sized image to https://postimg.org/ and link from there - I have just redone mine due to photobucket's crappy move.
