Might just be me, but I can't see the images at all. Are they on Imgur or elsewhere?

Well lets see if sharing the whole album works better since I no longer see a way to attach images

Here is a tutorial on posting pictures for the forum.
It takes a couple more steps then just using Google Drive.  I'm no voice on determining if helmets are application ready, but it looks good to me  :like:
