Lol. Good point. I would spend half my day picking stuff up that fell out of the door.

What would be the most budget friendly way to get a nice black paint job on this mfer? Paint confuses me on how materials can cost so much. It does need very light bindo work and prep...

You gonna paint it yourself?
Maybe. I'd love to have someone do it for me, but I don't have thousands to spend so I'll probably try it myself

I’d find a garage guy. It all adds up and the prep work is what counts

Bro if you paint that thing I’ll come wet sand and buff it it will look decent, I’ve fixed some fucked up garage jobs for my friends that turned out pretty decent

If you wanna get crazy, wet sand the basecoat before the clear goes on, shoot the clear then wetsand and buff again. Bodywork and prep better be on point though

So trans is out. For about the last 5 years, in any hot tune 2nd and 3rd would hang out for a bit(slip).. I knew I was bidding time but oh well.

This passed summer I lost everything above 2nd gear.

Just got to pulling it few weeks ago. So this trans has 250k miles. It's been on tires and has been tuned its entire life. It has towed as well. I am not mad at all.

Is that converter mud in the pan?
I think it's from converter and clutches.. There's a little bit of everything... Silver mud, grey flakes, dark solids...
