yeah and the manual diff and the clutch cable going into the bonnet all it needs is the box and drive shaft as far as im aware?
or is there other **** that would have been changed to make it an auto besides the interior bits

mechanic would probably charge you for 10hrs or so remove and refit. then he will replace the clutch thrust bearing etc with new parts, machine the flywheel etc probably gonna cost you around $1k. i doubt you will find someone to do it though cos' that car looks pretty rough and mechanics dont really like sending out a car that isnt rwc.

for example, if the brakes are shot, a lot of guys will make you fix them. unless you pay for truck in-out. i dont blame them either.
