the trans works great . it's the converter guy's that we have had problems with !! tell them what you have for power and a 5000 stall ends up being a 6190 stall with 15 % slip out the big end on motor!!!

Stainless is a fuggin pain.  And trying to do a flaired stainless line...  fogetaboutit.  I guess maybe with a little heat it would have been better/easier.

Talk about some brittle stubborn metal to work with.  Does look pretty when done right, but that takes a lot of patients and usually has to involve a lot of waste to make all them tiny lines right and pretty.

the trick with stainless is to heat it red hot with a torch then let it cool , then it flairs and bends like mild steel only a little tougher
