      Hello All:

      I have now returned to Canada after an extraordinarily long time out of the country (8 weeks), and I have started to re-host the photos lost when the OEM Plus photo server shut down unexpectedly earlier this year.

      If you would like photos re-hosted, please make your request in this thread, and provide a link (URL) to the thread with the missing photos. I will then try to find the photos and re-host them. Once I have re-hosted the photos, I'll make an note on your original request indicating that the job is done and the photos are again available.

      But, please consider this first: It takes about 10 to 15 minutes per thread to re-host photos. I don't mind spending the time to do this for photos that illustrate a 'how-to' task, or illustrate some other technical solution that will be of value to many other forum members in the future. But, for other photos such as a photo that might illustrate a rare interior trim colour on a MY 2004 car... before you ask to have the photo re-hosted, ask yourself whether the missing photo will be of value to others in the future, and whether it is worthy of 15 minutes of my time to go and find it, re-host it, edit the HTML to ensure it appears properly in the thread, etc.

      Thanks and regards,

      Michael

      Let me correct that - it can take up to an hour to re-host all the photos in a thread that has multiple posts with multiple photos.

      What I should have said was "It takes about 10 to 15 minutes per post to re-host photos...

      Good memory - that's exactly correct, this is now the third time round for photo hosting. At least I've got the hosting account under my control now, so, hopefully this will be the last time.

      Would it please be possible to rehost the pictures from your post #11 of Keyless Entry Issues (consolidated discussions) on door panel removal? I'm finally taking the plunge and replacing a broken sunshade on one of the rear doors. I did look through the 2 PDFs in "Interior Door Panel Removal -- Bass Speaker Broken Wire Repair" but would like to see photos of what I will be dealing with next weekend at the junkyard - this time I'm taking my camera and plan to post pictures of any relevant (or requested) disassembly.

      Also awesome pic of the Phaeton & Twin Otter...instrument and seaplane rated single engine private pilot here!

      REPLY FROM MICHAEL: All of my photos on the discussion Keyless Entry Issues (consolidated discussions) have now been re-hosted.

      Hey Michael,

      Could you re-host the pictures from Retrofitting a Warning Triangle in Trunk Lid? It would help me out a lot with fixing a problem with my trunk latch. Thank you for all your time.

      Hello Everyone:

      I am in Libya at the moment and will be here until the middle of May. I have limited internet connectivity, so, it might take a while to fulfil photo re-hosting requests.

      Hi Michael,

      Could you rehost any photos relating to the Kessy module, which gets wet when the rubber bungs fall off.
      I'd like to have a go at removing mine and drying it out and perhaps refitting new bungs.

      Thanks,

      REPLY FROM MICHAEL: Stu, let me know if you still want those photos (it's Sept 1 today, you posted the request on June 2). If you still plan to do the retrofit, I would be happy to re-host them, but it is about an hour's work to replace all the pictures - therefore I don't want to do it unless you still need them.

      Hi. In the UK, Phaeton 3.0TDi. Son doesn't like me smoking in the car so he removed the ashtray inserts and stuff'd the empty trays with coins -- one of these is now stuck in there and tray will not close. The two threads which appear to deal with this are:

      REPLY FROM MICHAEL: I have started the process of re-hosting all those pictures, but it will take some time to complete - it took me an hour just to do the first page of the thread.

      I cannot see any of the images and imagine they need re-hosting -- I realise this takes up a lot of time but would really appreciate the images being re-hosted (funny experience -- smaller images are available via Google search but when I click on one of them it simply leads back to the 1683482 thread).

      Thanks in advance.

      PS: Just found this PDF document -- was this created from the thread on this forum?

      http://wiki.vag.cc/images/e/e3/Volks...art_System.pdf


      REPLY FROM MICHAEL: Yes, the PDF referenced above is a word-for-word (and photo-for-photo) copy of the instructions contained on the thread. If you are thinking of doing this project, I recommend that you download that PDF - it will be a heck of a lot easier to print than the first page of the thread.

      Michael, could you please look into possibly rehosting the photos to this thread? At least the images in your explanation post, those are probably the most relevant. I'd appreciate it. It's listed under the TOC by the same name, here is the link:

      REPLY FROM MICHAEL: Photos have been re-hosted.

      Lots of pics here I would love to be able to see http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...haeton+flicker

      REPLY FROM MICHAEL: The missing posts on page 1 of that discussion were posted by another forum member (357Sig). I can only repost photos that I posted in the first place. There are quite a few photos on the second page of that thread that illustrate the point. Michael
