Rick,
The guy I bought the T/A from lost his brother when the mustang he was replacing the transmission in fell off the small jack-stand he was using. You all ways need a back-up! Safety first!
Thanks!

Scott,
They also did my Charger gauges and all the plastic chrome on the Charger dash. The only Plastic on the T/A they have re-chromed is the two small vents under the column and glovebox
Thanks!
Pat

Hey Pat, I'm not going to be able to go to Carlisle.  I will be at the paris air show 23-27 of April.  The T/A and Charger are doing fine.  I'm glad that you finally got the T/A you were searching for.  I really can't wait to see it done.  You do some great work!

Most of the underside of the T/A is cleaned, red oxide primer, and satin clear coated! Now it time for the rear aft :( Most of the work is fun, but this uder the car cleaning stuff suck!

That's pretty smart using the straps to pull and hold the body up.  I'll have to remember that.  Looking good Pat!
