couple updates finished the tremec box and the dual filter bracket somewhat disapointed with the fit of the blue AN fittings i thinkin about getting a pipe tap to sin the fitting in deeper to where the hex bottoms out on the bracket itself so no visable threads

The fittings may go in further with pipe thread sealer if you have screwed them in dry. If you tap them more, go a little at a time. Nice transmission.

little update for the buick newest parts and you can see the horrid example of what can pass for a rust "repair " on the frame also the frame boxing kit from hellwig also mds cap and rotor so now its ready to go for the distributor and yes that is thin sheet and lots of silicone to hold it in place
