1. Guest,
    We need good tech writers that are willing to help out here at ZL-OA. If you like taking photos of jobs as you perform the steps on your repairs, have historical ads/documents from old magazines, or any else you think belongs in the Technical Library than you might be able to help. Send a private message to Furchin, Mudrunner88, Chris, Jarney, Wuputt, or Markus56 and we can lead you in the right direction to get started.

    I can neither confirm nor deny that Bob saw something when he was at my 40th Birthday bash! :dontknow:

    :yeahthat: So true. You think you got it and something else pops up. Or you fix one thing and it breaks another.

    No problem, but you should all thank "Furchin" for bringing me back to my calling...After all I was missing for a few years :laughing7:

    Yep, also still around. Just been more into my Z28s and the SS lately. Glad the site's still here, nothing beats this place when your Eli is ailing. Unlike most of you, not looking forward to change. Yes, everything changes, but when it come to web sites being made easier to access with your phone comes funky looking rendering on the computer which is still my method of choice. Also most software upgrades seem to basically add little more than new ways to spam you with ads. I rarely upgrade anything anymore. It it isn't broke don't fix it is pretty much how I roll.

    Looking forward to riding weather, although there were a ton of bikes out on Saturday which hit 60 degs. Quite a rarity for the Midwest in January! Have fun guys and be safe out there. It was already dicey out on the roads before every idiot on the planet had a cel phone.

    Just a quick update. Testing is going good, a few quirks to work out but mostly all minor.
    During the final testing stages I may do some How-To: Videos as a teaser.
    Then when testing is done it would go live.
    Right now I'm predicting just a few more weeks if no other issues arise.

    So I just want to update everybody. The new website is coming along great, the graphics are very friendly to all PC's, and mobile devices.
    • The to the "Top" button is fixed and works as it should.
    • You will have the option to login with Facebook or Google accounts, or your original ZL-OA credentials.
    • Uploading attachments is MUCH easier.
    • The Media Gallery has larger thumbnails and they are dynamic (change when you hover for a second)
    • The chat engine is update heavily and integrated right into the website...So no more leaving the forums just to chat.
    • Choose your very color for your "Style" and in addition choose a background picture that you enjoy (Background photos are preset by admin, but a nice selection so far).
    • Like a thread? Link it right to your facebook page so your friends can see it.
    • Like a post? There will now be a "LIKE" button for when people post a usual answer to your problem.
    • Links in the footer to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, and GMail for quick easy access and they open in a new tab so you don't lose your page on the site.

    As we get into using the new software we may add more features. But this gives you all and idea where we are heading. Teaser/How To videos coming soon.

    It's so good to see all the old timers show up and post. I too hope the new website changes will spark new interest around here and increase the traffic. Surely some guys have moved on from their Eliminators but ya'll still have plenty to contribute to discussions and you'll never really get the bike outta' your system anyway. Great new look Kevin.....thanks for all your work on it Brother.......much appreciated!!
