thanks for the tip! I didn't realize I had to have it as a .zip

the jpg path was wrong in the wrl file and I fixed it, zipped the wrl together with the jpg and now when I upload the zip, it tells me the following, which I guess means the size of my model needs to be defined in a 3D program? I'm not sure how to do this... is this something I could do myself with meshlab for example or do I need pro help? again, would be ok with paying someone to help if someone is willing and able..

"We're unable to process this file. Check your file for errors and click 'Update File' to upload a new version.
Automatic rescale failed. Model is not within acceptable bounds in any unit. When rescaling to units in:
- millimeter, model is 1.05296 x 3.32888 x 0.94449 m
- inch, model is 26.74522 x 84.55342 x 23.98999 m
- meter, model is 1052.96143 x 3328.875 x 944.48767 m"

update:

I managed to export the model as STL from meshlab and to do the "automatic repair" thing in Netfabb. I think I might have even been able to scale it to the proportions I want.
now I'm not sure how to export this thing as something other than a netfabb project file, which is useless. and the texture.

if somebody has 15 minutes to clean up this mess please get in touch! thanks!

After you do all the fixes, right click the model and select "Export".. from there you have several export format options.

awesome that worked.. sorry to be such a newbie but now that i have a repaired stl file—how to i put it back in wrl form so it can be associated with its texture jpg again?

i think that would be the last step right?

i wonder if there's a way to just dump it back into meshlab?
