Thanks all!
KC here's the interior. The carbon has a few of the common age issues. But, I know a guy ;) (aerospace composites is my gig)
Sorry, it's loading them sideways even though they're saved with correct perspective. Check out that period correct Alpine pop out screen nav unit! lol

Thanks mofood. The interior looks great with the cf accents and the black floormats. Both boxster red and tan can look fantastic if it has contrasting pieces. But if those colors aren't broken up with trim, then the red or tan can overwhelm.

As for the pic orientation, what I found is that the software always places the long axis on the horizontal plane. I will message Schnelly about that to see if he can change the settings. A couple of times I have downloaded the posted pic and trimmed the vertical axis to get the software to display it properly, but I bet it's just a setting

The photos are being posted in the orientation in which the phone/camera first saved them. Some phones leave them in that orientation and rely on EXIF metadata to display them correctly. I'll add some code to the upload process to (hopefully) ensure that uploaded pictures display they same way after upload as you see them on your phone.

Depending on how you edit them, the metadata can be lost (like screenshotting or pasting image data into a new image file), resulting in the edited version mysteriously behaving better than the original.

There was an extensive argument in the phpBB forums about this - some developers insisted that it's the photographer's responsibility to "fix" their images. This mode of developerthink pisses me off.
