I see the same desktop view on my iPhone, but the text is so small it's unreadable.

Have you considered switching from SMF to phpBB? I run a number of phpBB car forums and it's really great, it adapts to any size device so mobile views look good. You are being penalized by Google because you are not mobile optimized.

Not my site but see http://forum.merkurclub.com/forum/index.php for an example of a phpBB car forum. Looks good on any mobile device by default using built-in responsive template.

Testing new sheet metal...




Welded it from inside, so it needs less finishing.



Used original piece as cover (after I had it sandblasted).




Finished...



It was time to continue this restoration of that fender cutting done some six years ago.... I had done a little bit of this before...




Made a new straight angle



And added some metal...



Welded it...



And after that made a new inner piece and welded it.



A better wiew...



Painted and protected against rust, I hope...



That rear corner looked kinda sad, so I sanded that cracked bondo.... Hammered a little and used schrinking disc to raise some low spots...



Repaired that missing part of front fender (drivers side)



And front corner too...
First I made fender lip using my bead roller and self made fender lip rollers...



Did some schrinking and cutting to get it fit better.



Testing....



Welded...



Yuo can see that much of it when fender flare is attached. Nothing.....



Co-drivers side needed that much of sheet metal...



Bend a little... weld a little...



Front corner needs more than a piece of sheet metal. Made a cardboard template to show how much it is out of right shape...  >:D



What to do?

I used a compass to draw some curved lines to find some corners, so I could tape some cutting lines...



Then just cut all bad away.



I did same lines to a fender of my crashed Concord...



Testing..



Fits well...

What type of mobile device are you using? There might be a setting I need to change for a specific os on specific devices. I usually use my iPad.have t had any problems. Can you post a couple screen shots so I can get a idea of what I need to do? I am actually getting ready to do some testing on a windows 10 pc, to see if anything is odd there.
Thanks,
Taylor

after 14 yrs it looks like, due to wife's health an moving, we  are have to sell our 1988 eagle wagon. It has a 4.0 head conversion with a holley carb. 2in lift in the rear and 1.5 lift in the front. I will try and get some pics posted and and a heads up when I'm ready to put it up for sale. Its been in storage for the last 2 years, so I need to go thru it and make sure everything is still good.
