    Hi Nova,

    Yup they were the old twisties but I've upgraded them to McClickies. Pretty straight forward.

    Here's the DIY upgrade I did.

    Sorry for crummy quality, but here's my SF collection.


    Collection including lights and accessories, minus spare lamps, lanyards, etc.


    Lights only (left to right)...Front row: E1/E1e with KL1 heads (3 ea.); Middle row: L2, 6PSN, 6P, E2/E2e in black (2 ea.), in HA (3 ea.), & in satin gray (2 ea.); Back row: M4, M6 (2 ea), M3, C3, Z3, D3, 9P blk, 9P "clear," and G3.


    3-cell lights (niche where I think SF really shines): M3 (+ turbo head for M3T), C3, Z3, D3, 9P blk, 9P "clear," and G3. Beam shapers/diffusers at bottom front.
    Having a right and doing what's right is not always the same.

    to Kingfisher..

    Hello.. I am based in the UK too. I see from ur pics u have a lot of surefire batteries. Where do u buy them actually? I know nightgear.co.uk sells them but it aint cheap. I think energizer or panasonic cr123a is much cheaper than those surefire batteries..

    I bought my first surefire from nightgear.co.uk actually...

    and where did u buy ur E2DL from? do u mind posting some pics of ur E2DL crenallated bezel? Im thinking of buying it.

    They don´t sell the OD green cases over here - at least not yet. And yes, they are much more expensive over here. Shipping for pelican cases is very expensive too (~$45 for the case + $36 for shipping) but it still is a little cheaper to order one from lighthound than buying it here. And I get the colour I want. It´s www.tadgear.com and the stickers are from eBay.

    I have around 14 Surefire lights, mostly incans, and an innumerable amount of spare lamp assemblies.
    If somebody only could explain, step-by-step, HOW to post pictures here. I have a 3.2MP digital camera, but NO resizing possibilities (Windows '98....)

    This camera has numerous settings, starting with 640X480 pixels. As I have read so many times, from moderators as well as members here: "please re-size your pictures, they are too large!"
    Is this too large already? If yes, we can stop here, then I'm NEVER able to post pictures...
    If 640X480 is acceptable, then please go on in trying to explain me HOW to post pictures

    EDIT: let's try to add a picture:


    THANKS Solscud007! Finally someone, who actually could tell how it works in layman's terms!

    What you see lighting in this picture, is my modded A2. I finally found REAL warm white 5mm LEDs to mod it. Now, the tint is really like the incan. This picture was taken with the white balance on "auto".

    Timmo.

    Ok first of all 640x480 is fine. I usually post 800x600 so that the pictures are slightly bigger.

    Do you know how to download the pictures onto your computer? Place them on the desktop of your computer.

    then go online to www.imageshack.us

    You will see a blank text bar and a "BROWSE" button next to it.

    Click browse and a pop up window will open. navigate and go to your pictures on the desktop.

    click on the picture you want, if there are multiple pictures just select them by hitting "CTRL" button while you select your pictures.

    Click open and the pop up window will close and go back to imageshack website.

    if your pictures are large or you have doubts there is a "resizing" option you can choose. Imageshack will resize automatically for you. You just need to choose the option for 640x480 or in my case, 800x600.

    Then click "UPLOAD"

    wait for it to finish and a new window will show. There will be a list of information. look for DIRECT LINK.

    highlight and copy that text.

    open a new window and go to Candlepowerforums start a reply or new thread. Create the post like you normally want.

    Then paste the text from Imageshack into the body of the post.

    at the beginning of the text you want to type [img]

    then at the end it usually says .jpg add [/img] to the end. No spaces between the brackets and the text. type it exactly the brackets and the letters.

    if you have multiple pictures then the direct link will have multiple lines of text. each line will start with http and end with jpg usually.

    make sure each and every line, you add the [img] at the beginning in front of http and [/img] immediately after jpg.

    then click submit and the post will be created if the post is missing pictures you may have no typed the bracketed IMG text correctly. go back and check your work.

    hope that helps.

    640x480 is fine. I haven't checked but IIRC the max is 800x800.

    As for posting them, you need somewhere to host the pics and then you link to them using the little picture icon above the textbox when you make your post (has a pic of a mountain). I am sure someone will chime in with a good free pic host that you can use.

    Cheers,
