Scott81 is a major contributor to the L81VetteRegistry As Scott modifies his 1981 he keeps the Registry informed with pictures and details of every step in the process. I just read his article about converting his transmission to a 700R.. Great Piece ... thought I would share it with anyone that would be interested..

Aw Geeze now I'm blushing...

Hey Bud,

Thanks! Actually I got it readjusted because I didn't like the neck snapping shift from 1-2. It's nice and smooth now but all shifting is right on with no slip. I also adjusted my throttle cable, for some reason I didn't have enough pedal, so today I moved it all the way back and now the pedal is all the way up off the floor. Took the beast out for a run on I-75 and it runs like a champ.

On May 29th I'll be spending the day at Van Steel, Art is going to put all new heavy-duty U-joint caps on my car and in return I'll be posting a page of all the goodies. Shhhh, don't tell my teacher but I'm skipping class all day for this. ;)

Now all I need is that nasty ZZ450 motor and I'd really be happy!
