I just finished up my conversion and it really wasn't that difficult. This was the first time ever doing anything like this. What I did was I asked a lot of questions and read a lot of write ups. There are a lot of knowledgeable and patient people here that are willing to help out as much as possible. A lot of times the same question and topics come up and it must be frustrating to the see the same thing come up but everyone is willing to help out so don't be afraid to ask a question. I upgraded to the AX-15 transmission so it took longer to find all the parts that I needed. If I would of started out with a automatic it would of been a lot quicker since it seams there a lot more of them out there. It is definitely easier to have a donor vehicle in front of you as I always found myself running to the junkyard for little things that I didn't have. It's been a fun project and I learned a lot of things that I didn't know.
