When the 78 was on the rack for the transmission instillation, I seen the bottom of the rockers weren't painted. So I took the time to get both sides painted.

I cut the starter hole in a new flex plate cover for the 78. The used 2004r transmission has broken screws in the top 2 holes. I'm going to try drilling them out tomorrow.

Took it to the last cruise in of the season. Everyone left their "mark" when leaving, including me :D

I installed the flex plate cover today. I then started it to check for leaking. No runs, no drips, and no errors.

I had a leak around the radiator drain. I tighten the fitting which has Teflon tape around it.

I seen that my friends forgot to put the bolts in the lower radiator fan shroud. So I found a couple and put them in. All is tight now.
