Creating your forum Garage

Creating your forum Garage
We offer a cool feature at 7173Mustangs.com known as the Garage! Click the answer tab above to learn how to create your own Garage...
The Garage is a great place to add some details and photos of your car in order to show it off to other members! The forum also links your Garages in your profile and postbit (in every post you make) so it is easy for everyone to find. It doesn't matter if your car is complete or not, feel free to create a Garage! We love seeing 71-73's in all stages of restoration!

First, go to the Garage module and click ADD CAR. A screen will open that is similar to a regular post screen with the addition of extra fields for photos. Fill in as much detail about your car as you like and then when you come to the photos fields, it is best to have your photos on your PC ready to upload. Just click the BROWSE button and navigate to the location on your PC where you store your photos. Alternatively, you can select the URL button and then add a link to your photos from Photobucket or even the new TinyPic feature available in our footer bar! The first vehicle image is required and the rest are optional, but we encourage you to add all the photos if possible. The Modification photos can be more photos of your car or the engine, wheels, traction bars...what ever you would like to show up close! It's your garage, post what ever photos you like!

You can edit your Garage at any time by clicking the EDIT button at the bottom of the Overview section. Just be sure to select FULL EDIT from the dropdown menu. You can then change the details just like you would edit a post but to change photos, you need to click the box that says REMOVE/REPLACE. This will open up the browse box for you to select a new photo or URL. When your done making changes, be sure to click the UPDATE POST button at the bottom and your done!

Hope this tutorial is helpful! If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or PM me any time!
