Yea, it was done by a mobile guy in our area that works for car dealers.  He does that kind of stuff every day. 

I cant figure out how to add a picture and have it click through to photo bucket.

Any help on doing that?

Thanks

I guess he does not take pride in his works........
In your photobucket acct go to Album options,  click share then click link code. When the window pops up make sure clickable thumbnail is checked. Once checked it will come up under your menu for each pic.

I like the ingenuity!  Red Green would be proud.  Anyone that would put that much effort in I have to applaud.  There  is a market for it too!

This is what happens when the car lot owners and employees have a crack problem and let crack head vendors work on their cars.

Go to the top of this thread to see some really nasty stuff.
