    I've never tried imgbb., but Imgur does allow for editing picture size down to 800Xwhatever to make pics more forum friendly sized. Once I've edited my pictures, I copy and past the BBcode into the thread and poof! everyone can see what I'm saying.

    Very nice. DM me if you are interested in unloading the original pups.

    Am I correct in assuming that I can trim down the pickup wiring so I don't have all of that excess wiring inside the cavity?

    You can but I don't. It's better to have extra wire if you need to work on your guitar in the future. Also, if you are cramped for space in the cavity it is easier to remove the pots when soldering. If you decide you don't like them and go to sell them people will be concerned about wire length.

    I would zip tire the wire together if it's a lot.

    Well, I ended up trimming the wires down. I just felt that was too much wire and I needed the extra room for the Bare Knuckle capacitors anyways. In the end I think it turned out really good and I kind of feel like I was nervous for nothing. Again thanks for all of the help!

    Clean, those caps are huge! With the push pull probably was getting tight in there.
