    Not going to paint it? I know you cant really see it but they look good painted and its easier to see leaks if you paint it the right color. Oh yea, my tranny will be in the mail to you soon.

    Yup, paint it a flat color!!! If it ever becomes shiny, its leaking. Painted surfaces also transfer heat better, although aluminum transmissions arent really that porous it would still benefit you.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    if i cleaned the outside better, i would but to do a good job you have to use etch primer and then tedious sanding in all the hard to get areas for it to stick and last...thats all its getting, ready to get it fully done and in the car...also sanding i would be risking getting dust and such into the fresh clean trans

    and like chevy done to chevelles in the 60-70's yellow seems to be the appropriate color for leaks...now if i was going full out show, id pull the body and paint everything, frame, trans, axel, driveshaft ect

    Glad to hear from you, I checked your profile to see if you posted anywhere this morning and was starting to worry. Watched reports to see if I could figure out how your area did from your map but never could. I was talking to my folks today and told them about you, they will be glad to hear you are well, even if broke! Broke and healthy is a fixable situation.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    yea everything was fine out here just needed power, we had 2 generators going running 2 small a/c window units, refrigerator, lamps, cell phone chargers...Harrahs casino sent out a msg that they was opening, i spent a few nights in there cooling off and enjoying some football on TV

    as for the fleetwood, it road the storm out in the front yard...as soon as the storm passed i was hosing all the leaves and stuff stuck to it off...went to work friday to get my check before they sent us home...i cleaned under the hood, inside, outside, rims, tires and glass, had it looking new again, then saturday it rained on it...still shinning right now though

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    well the other day I finished the transmission, all i need to do is go buy a new torque convertor and im shooting for starting tuesday after work ill start tearing it apart and hopefully wednesday i finish it up and get it all back together just in time to test it out and then go party on the weekend

    today some guy stopped me to ask who done my sound...I told him I do all my work and gave him a demo...when he got out the car he took my number and said "I want my avalanche to beat like that" I said it takes money but I can do it...think he said he wants to do 4 15"s in, TV radio and some speakers mounted on the rear roof area...fine with me, I love money

    he couldnt believe it was that loud, ill post his demo when the video decides to upload

    terrible, but ya gotta spend as much on your girl as you do the car if not it doesnt end well...my other money pit

    heres the video since photobucket finally loaded it...i thought he was gonna cover his ear, I think he was holding his nose cuz it twitches the nostrils, he also done it with the door open so it didnt give the full pressure effect when closed up...you can see in the upper corner the windshield and sun visor flexing
