I have one for my 4L80E in the Chrysler. Hoping to get a bit of mileage from the rod.
I need to go for a long Stateside cruise to visit some forum friends.
Heck, I may even stop by to visit Henry.

can't get the edit to work, but here is some pics. of the GV unit
|Today 08:31 AM|
each are built to your specs. based on HP and your driving style. street/strip, full race etc.
the tail shaft is removed from your existing transmission. the GV adaptor is added then the OD unit is added to it.
the only fitment issue I had was where the 4 speed shifter bolts on the OD adapter. it has machined bosses and they were recessed just a little to much for the shift rods to line up to the trans. couple flat washers fixed that.
I already had a $1500. polished stainless exhaust system on my car that included a X pipe. that had me a little concerned but it fit, but the OD unit was tight against it. I made a insulated heat shield and placed it between the X pipe and the OD unit.
other that no problem
I havn't had a chance to road test it as yet. waiting for the weather to get better
feel free to ask any ?s I'll try to answer them

Soooooo, no five minutes yesterday or the day before. Wednesday I took my wife on her Christmas present night out to SF to the Orpheum Theater to see a play (Finding Neverland) and we didn't get home until midnight. Then last night I was dog tired and didn't get out there. Not only was I out till midnight we got lost going to the play and walked quite a bit in the pouring rain before the play.
So there are my excuses. The show was outstanding by the way.
Tonight I got out there for a little while and cut out the rust and made the patch panel for the hole. The gap at the rear corner really isn't as bad as it looks.

|Too Many Projects||I bought NOS end pieces of the lower paint divider for my "66 Chevelle a week ago for a decent price. I asked if the seller had the center piece. Their answer was discouraging "we don't and haven't had one for a long time. The last one we saw listed was $500". Wednesday night I came across a listing for a 1966 Chevelle lower grille molding. Well, there is no such thing and it turned out to be the center paint divider I wanted. I bought this NOS piece for $265 SHIPPED to my door....|

What I like to do is search with a very broad search like "Rambler" period, just that. I do this in "advanced search" and then click on "time: newest listed." I then save that to my favorites and check it every morning. You are seeing the very newest stuff listed, often it's a "buy it now" and you get the killer deals before anyone sees them!

LOL, How about a tutorial on what to do and not to do when buying and selling on Ebay. Just kidding but here is an interesting example of good and bad practices.
I decided to to a search using only the words chevy convertible.
I came up with a listing that said "53 Chevy Convertible rear window" It made no mention of 1953 or 1954. The word quarter window was not used.
Bottom line is, I was able to buy parts cheaply because I searched with terms that were slightly different from the "norm" and the seller lost out on opportunities because he did not use multiple words to describe his listing.
I bought these two platable quarter windows for $25 bucks a piece and the run tracks for $10 a piece. I have seen worse ones sell for $150.
I was probably the only bidder just because the seller did a poor job of writing his listing.
