Got to post my hello before we reach double digits in pages! Congrats on the PIF. I'm sure it was a lot of fun getting it all over with. This is awesome how we all came together to pitch in. Good times.

For the last 12 hours I have been sailing back up north with all these thoughts of joy and gratitude towards all of you, my dear and extended familly.
It was hard to hold back the tears in front of John and Cole and I was little more than stunned to say the least. When Rene told me the total I thought I heard wrong as he had quoted over 1700 plus tax the day before, my knees and hands started to shake as John announced the PIF and told me how the club came together to help an old canuck out in his time of need
I'm a humble person usually but this really choked me up, I cant thank you all enough as this is the best thing to happen to me since my kids were born (last time I cried).
Everything I have done here has been for me, because I wanted to do it. Not for payment or applause but for the simple act of helping others when I could.

The tranny is a champ, firm shifts and runs cool. 156*f was the top limit on a few big hills at 70mph with average around 145*f. Trans ran at 127*f up here in 22*f outside temps. Roads were bare and dry, sky was clear, lunar eclipse was cool to watch thru the sunroof.

Group Hug...........I love you all

Well deserved, and glad to hear that you are now home with your family, after your "adventure" to the states.

Congrats, guys! Hope you enjoy it to the fullest. Remember, that transmission needs to get to a 1/4 mile ASAP for final break-in
