Default Is it possible to create a "Private" thread?

Hello,
Is there anyway to create a build thread and keep it "private" so that I can continue to build the threads content, add images, do edits, .etc so that I'm the only 1 that can see the content or even invite specific other forum members to review? I'm working on a 1985 Monte Carlo SS (Barney Want2B).

I am looking forward to starting a build thread and have been wanting to however at this point I'm not looking for feedback or comments simply due to the lack of any consistent progress and wish to keep the thread "clean" as long as possible.

I'm not wealthy, my health is declining, and work in a gravel driveway with limited equipment, so I seem to spend more time moving backwards than getting any real forward progress. For example; this past spring, I managed to get the body removed from the frame on my own but it took me 4 days due to all the breaks I need to take due to having had 6 back surgeries, need my hip replaced, and only have 35% use of my right hand due to Arthritis. Then due to the excessive heat here in VA, problems moving about, and the extension cord for my welder being about 4" short, I've managed to accomplish almost nothing more.

That said; my goal is more to document what I've done, outline the plans, and parts I've acquired so that my son may be able to complete the car should I not be able too.

Thank you,
Shawn

Well, there are a couple of things I can think of off the top of my head, but may not work for you. One, I can set you up so you can post and nobody other than moderators can view what you post. Works great for your build thread issue, but anything you post in other threads would also not be viewed by the members.

Otherwise you could start the thread in the supporting members lounge and only the other supporting members would be able to see it, which is a small percentage of the members on this site. I would think the members there would honor your request for no posting. In the future if you decided you wanted it visible to all I could move the entire thread into the project updates forum.

Unless you are a car building superstar building a six figure car you are not likely to get many comments on this site, especially if you ask for no comments imho. I think you may be overthinking this....

I say just post a build thread in the main section and explain what you are doing. This site is full of really good car people and bad behavior is not tolerated by most. I'll have your back as well should anyone get out of line.

Kudos for you for taking on a project like this. Wish I was closer so I could help some in person.
