Everything works and the driveshaft was just replaced by Vortech before they discontinued the kit.

Kelly... I knew the car would get your attention... too bad you are not near Raleigh

Looks like I am leaving tonight to go pick up the new toy.... I am very lucky to have a truck and trailer since the earliest I can get tags is Monday.... However I am going to test drive it tomorrow... I wanna thank Trevor for the advice and help he has provided and will provide in the future. He knows Contours.
