        That's awesome Jeff!

        Back on the road with your rebuilt transmission and new converter!!! Rides are going to be a little more fun, lol.

          Yes!....and I drove it yesterday just to go put gas in it...2 or 3 miles total. ..
          1) It lights up the tires EASY now...
          2) Gonna take a while to get used to the new higher stall converter. ..it barely moves until I get the RPMs up...I don't think there's anything wrong with it...just gotta get used to it...

          Jeff

            I'm still getting used to mine too. It's not bad, just different. I have to get used to the new 5.9 and rebuilt transmission with a 9.5" converter.

            Means we will have to put lots of miles on them!! :steering:

              That thing must be pretty loose. Make sure you have an adequate Cooler for it. She gonna heat up a little....

                  There's a guy in vegas who owns a shop that has been closed. He just charged 700 to do my buddy's full interior in his boat and it looks amazing. My buddy opted to get the "upgraded" material. 5 seats, and all of the trim pad pieces for 700!

                    currently learning how to buff/polish/wax a car with an orbital buffer. My paint is better than some, worse than others not perfect but in good shape...

                    Here's the trunk, it got a lot of little "brown/black" spots out. Trunk is probably the worst overall panel on the car because it has a big cracked bubble and other smaller cracks in the paint. Picture of cracked bubble thats located in the middle of the top portion of the trunk before polishing anything.

                      Wow that would be well worth driving up and having my boat done.

                          Hey Slopar- What size speaker do you have in that kick panel. Looks like a 6x9?

                          Great attention to detail. I need to paint the grill on my Dart too. What material is the yellow?

                            I have no clue what kind of boat it is. He got it for free from his grandma's neighbor, its like a 1970 all original that was sitting in their yard the past 20 years never moved.

                              I KNOW i mentioned this more then once on this board that I was going with 215/70 R14 tires for my 64 Dart, and I read numerous posts where Folks here did exactly that.

                              I am bummed that nobody mentioned that these tires will hit right up against the lower inner section of the front fenders.... WTF!!! Seriously....?? NOW Im committed, they are mounted on the rims. So.... It appears I have to hack away some sheet metal on a VIRGIN Dart to make them clear the inner fender, correct??? Which, in hindsight, doesnt surprise me...... Im just trying to do as little fuckery to this "Survivor" as possible, and granted, who really is going to crawl under my car, and point it out?

                              Idk what is is, I've never had a boat or been much of a boat person. I'd love to get a boat one day to take the kids wake boarding and tubing though.

                              These are some old pictures he sent me when he first got it. He just painted the trailer.
