Hi all. I have a 1988 Mera. Finally figured out the actual wiring for the Vitaloni mirrors. I'm sorry however I use this forum constantly and it is an amazing source for technical issues and answers, yet everything on the web for these mirrors to wire them to a GM Fiero is incorrect. I put together a diagram and wanted to post it with the actual wire to wire connections. Believe me it is near impossible to figure this out on your own. I took some of the information posted and used that as a start. How do I scan this diagram and post it here for others?
If I cant do this with a picture I will post it with just an explanation....JRR

You can't post a PDF directly on PFF. You could put a PDF on another server and then link to it.

Better, though, is to scan your diagram(s) in GIF or JPG image format and then upload them to PFF using PIP. (See the bottom of the main menu page for a link to download and install PIP on your computer. With a little more effort, you can use FTP instead of PIP.) GIF is generally a better image format choice for line drawings (like electrical schematics), while JPG is usually better for photos.

P.S. This thread probably should have been started in the TOT (Totally Off/Topic) GFC (General Fiero Chat) section.

It's not off topic. PFF is pretty primitive regarding attachments and photos.
Expecting someone to convert a 50 page .PDF to page images and attach those individually isn't reasonable.

Those belong in the General Fiero Chat section. In this (the GFC) section you can also post threads about the forum itself. Or ask who the owner of that blue-with-polkadots Fiero is. Just as long as it's Fiero or Forum related.



Not really. Questions about the forum itself belong in GFC, not TOT.

Primitive maybe, but probably adequate for 99% of the pictures posted on PFF. The original thread title is How do I post a PDF?, but he then referred to "a diagram," so I naturally assumed that he was talking about a single sheet ... certainly fewer than "50 pages."

You are right. I stand corrected.
