I tried in 3 different browsers, and they all display the same:

Are these in the screenshot "straight"/correct to you, BB?
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

I sometimes have this issue with photos from my Android phone. If I try to change orientation in my picture files, they may still be sideways.

BB,
What lighting did you use for this great photo? Late day sunlight?

Oh, that’s a loose LED 4’ shop light that I move around for various tasks. You can plop it on the floor upside down shining up at the underside of the car - pretty useful. When I did the lighting in the garage I bought a stack of Costco shop lights and I had one extra. The tubes are plastic so you can’t hurt it. I got so sick of holding a flashlight in my teeth!

Ok, good to know. FYI I didn't do anything to them, that's how they look.

I learned (again) that good photos will save your butt. I got this assembly of hub and steering arm and brake hose bracket and dust shield and double stacked washers and big bolts and little bolts together in a few minutes because of a ton of pics on my phone as I took it apart. Whew!
