Actually, you caught me at a good time. I'm honestly not that good at Photoshop. I'm okay, but the greatest or best by any means.

As far as busy goes. I'm a lot less busy now than I was a few months back. Now that I'm moved into a new house and all.

We're not looking for someone that works at Cosmo or Playboy. And it'* not something that requires attention on a daily basis. It'* a staff position that I created(which means you have MOD access and other goodies).

If you remember the COTM badges and our current badges, that'* all we really need. Mostly the COTM. We haven't had those in awhile and we have members that don't have them now.

Do y'all still have the template or is that pretty much lost on a user past'* computer?

It'* lost Brian, you know who done it before. And quite frankly, the forum could use some new "blood"...meaning, start from scratch, completely new.

Hmmm so basically looking for something with the logo in it but with a fresh look (and probably preferably not the dumb looking double piston like the one in my sig). My only question: will putting PNGs in a siggy allow for a transparent background or will it white it out?

Never thought of the site logo, but looking at staff badges and COTM etc. I can stick Shania Twains head on a naked body but I can't do simple graphics like our badges etc.

But if your squirrely enough, both of you'* can design something up.

well, not today.. more like over a week ago. lauren needed new sparkplugs, because her car was starting to stumble at idle. (aside from the fact it was getting maybe 19mpg highway at 160k on the stock ones) and she decided to stoop to my level and learn to do spark plugs. after she did the front three she gave up and decided that "it would be just as efficient to throw a match in there." (her words, not mine.)


i finally got the camera out of her car to upload this. little side note... A) i hate them dumbass heat shield goobers. B) 13+ year old spark plug boots are a royal pain to remove. i ended up busting one and using an OEM 1969 mustang wire to move it back into its spot till the next day. LOL.

i swear that car probably has 20 more horsepower now.


my girlfriend wanted to learn to change spark plugs..... - YouTube
