    Usually there are two tabs, to choose from url location or computer, maybe you are not set on the correct tab?

    Yes, that was what I was expecting but the second tab wasn't showing this time. I tried with 2 different browsers too and the same result. The second tab to upload from my computer was missing. Hopefully I can get it figured out.

    Anyway, here is the update posted on the other site I am on:

    Thanks Joel! I’ll be renewing my membership so I can upload again and hope to borrow my daughter’s camera to get some decent video too.

    I've been trying to post an update for a week but for some reason couldn't upload photos. Now it seems to be working using the basic uploader. I hope to film it in action soon but it has been rather rainy and I've got lots of leaves to clear in the driveway as a result.

    I've had a rather busy teaching semester and not had much time to work on this, but I grabbed a bit of time here and there I finished the driver. Guillermo Del Torso is now Armand Chester. I had to cut both him and the seat in half for proper clearance with the new chassis. I also figured out a solution for his hands using a glove cut out in aluminum flashing, painted black and then layered with sticky craft foam. The flashing helps the hands keep their grip and the sticky foam sticks to a painted surface better than bare aluminum. I was using nylon ribbon for seat belts but needed something more sturdy. The closure strips for coffee bags proved to be just the thing.

    In addition, I fabricated disc brakes and installed them. I have a license plate mocked up but not installed yet and need to do some finishing work on the windshield but I and close to calling this done. It is lots of fun to drive and I will post a better video than what I shared previously when I get some time off.

    My mocked up license, a dedication to Norman Dewis, the test driver on so many of Jaguar's most spectacular cars who passed recently.
