Just look at a post with pics, and hit "quote" and you'll see the text necessary to embed images. Essentially, you can click the "Img" button in the compose screen, then just put the URL to the image inside the tags, like this (but using square brackets instead of parens): (img)http://wherever.com/path/to/image.jpg(/img)

I've tried every possible combination of that I can think of! lol... I think it's got more to do with flickr...
but thanks, I'll figure it out eventually!

One of the only 2 Webasto dealers in the Puget Sound area lists the price of your sunroof, installed, as "From 1495". I think you got a good price. If someone finds this price, 1295, in Washington State, let me know, I'm interested, at that price...

The board uses standard BBCode tags in posts. You can do all sorts of neat things like:
  • Add color
  • Change text size
  • make bulleted (or numbered) lists. ;)

fwiw, I received a quote of $1399 (includes installation and tax, provided payment is in cash) from my nearest Webasto dealer (Coach Automotive Restyling in Union City, 50mi from me in Gilroy). The one odd thing is that they would not install a model 930 because they said that was on "quarantine" for the Leaf and so wouldn't work (but of course, we on MNL have proof that it does, so it's likely just their codespeak for "we don't have that model on hand"). They wanted to use the 700 series instead (a bit smaller, and single pane instead of double). I think I'd prefer the 930 that PatricioEV had done, if I can find it at a reasonable price, so I'm going to continue checking around the Bay Area.

Yeah, $1400 is WAY too much for a regular single panel roof.. that would have cost me $899 at the place I used. I'd find a different installer altogether, sounds like they aren't the best source.

With the solar panel on the rear end, you likely could generate enough power to keep that puppy cracked and run a fan to circulate air and keep the cabin temp, while parked, down somewhat in the summer.

Hopefully, they'd also add a rain sensor and tie the "open to vent" function to that too! (Does the SL have rain-sensing wipers?)

Looks great! I'm sure there will be a few Austin LEAFers interested in seeing this in person!

Are you sure it's "same color fabric" and not actually the original headliner/headliner fabric?

You are correct. Flickr does not allow you to link an image therefore the IMG tag does not work. You can link to an Flickr album using the URL tag, which you figured out right away. If you want to link directly to an image use Facebook, Pinterest or a different Photo Sharing website. Basically you can only link to an image if the "Copy Image Location" appears when you right click the picture.

Same problem with Google photo sharing site too. I can get an URL to an Album but not to an individual picture.
