They're like frickin murals

That will be a pretty sweet car once you get all the little stuff straightened out. I would suggest you get rid of that TCI converter and get a quality unit from Yank or Vig, especially since the trans is already coming out.

Just curious but whats so bad about TCI converters? I've used a few of them and have one in my car and no complaints. All have been good quality units.
