    Unhappy Did a little light upgrade!

    Saw a guy do this on another thread here, but I went a little further. I used the Vanquish 3inch black bar and their stock mount and drilled the holes closer so it's mounted better. Can't post attachments tho. But that light firs perfect!

    Attachments are easy. Create a free photobucket account or login to it with facebook. Upload it there. After you upload, click on the image. Then on the right side where it says share, click the direct button. That will copy it to your clip board. Then come here where you type your message or reply, click the insert image picture just above, and then hit ctrl-v , or right click and hit paste, then hit ok. easy

    Hey glad to see you liked my light bar idea! Lucky, you got a black one, I only could get a silver one.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    LOL. Sorry that was just a random pic of my reef tank that was on my photo bucket to use as an example that it's easy to do.

    Not that I'm aware of. It's honestly not that difficult. I posted that pic in about 15 seconds, but it was already uploaded. PM'd you.

    Thanks for your help, I'm a dummy. I don't see the insert image part?

    Are you using quick reply at the bottom? If so, look at the bar above where you start typing text. Theres the 2 A's, then bold , italics, underine, font, etc. Go all the way to the right and it looks like a picture frame.

    Needapeed, Cool Same LHS I got my X MAXX I was actually the first person to get one. I had prepaid. I will check with a friend of mine that was pretty amped up about mine. I actually have a friend at work that works out of Ohio every time he comes in from Ohio to the office he brings me a case.
