As with any print publication, good quality pics are needed (ie typically at full res out of the camera, not at web resolution).

If you want to appear in the book, I'd suggest that you do the following:

1. Email me a couple of high res photos and a short description of what you've done, and how you tested the results. julianedgar1 at gmail.com

2. I'll get back to you to let you know if I am interested. (I hope I will be, but I might already have examples that cover the same ground, etc.)

3. I'll then ask you to write a more detailed description, or provide more pics, eg a step by step, or testing of different versions, etc

4. You will be mentioned by name in the book, as will EcoModder

If you have any questions, I am happy to answer them.
Julian,I attempted to email you,but Yahoo would not accept your address at presented.I'm unsure as to what to do.Thanks in advance for your help,Phil.

You did replace the 'at' with '@'? Other people have been emailing me so there should not be an issue there.

My emails to him went through with no problems. Triple check the spelling.

I just approved what he wrote about my truck. His writing skills are far better than mine!

Julian - maybe it would help if you provided a minimum image size, in pixels.

I suspect most people used to posting images on the web (vs. print) work in lower-res images. I even have my camera/phone image size set lower than default.

I'm digging through my stuff now to see what images I kept that are bigger than, for example, 800w x 600h, which I assume is not big enough for print use.

Normally, a print image needs to be at least 1000 pixels wide. However, I can get away with some smaller images if I have at least one larger image I can also use. eg a large overall image, and construction (or whatever) pics smaller.

A sharp 800 x 600 would be fine for a 1 or 1.5 column width pic (ie 2-3 inches wide). 2000 pixels wide and we could use it for a full page! (The layout artist decides that though, not me.)

Obviously no one wants to have their car looking really poor!

Just an update. I am currently collecting material from forum contributors, writing it up in the form it will be used in the book, and then shooting it back to the various people to ensure that there are no mistakes.

At this stage I don't have anything from anyone on belly pans (except for my own work), so I am eager to get some other examples of these.

I also (and this isn't so much an EcoModder thing) need more examples where people have improved stability and/or reduced lift, so if you - or anyone you know - has done some aero work in this area with good pics, I am also interested.
