So car was dropped off at the dealer by auction place. As feared the tow driver pulled off the lip on the drivers side at the the wheel well openeing. Ripped the screws out so now it hangs on the corner. He also pulled the bumper apart from the fender. There is now a 1/4" gap there cuz it pulled the mounting screws out of the fender. Took pics and emailed them to adjuster to let her know the auction company tow driver did this and that I have pics to show it was ok b4 and a pic showing the tow arm on his truck squishing my lip and pulling the bumper. And you could also see drag marks on my tires that weren't there b4.

The guy who towed me home had no problems and didn't even touch the any part of the body with his setup. And he used blocks to raise the car so his tow arms wouldn't touch anything accept the tires.

Went there, spoke with Craig. They are good guys, but they don't rebuild trannies themselves.
Then I spent whole day driving around from place to place looking for one competent specialist.... well and I'm still looking :/

I go to a place here in League City called Dynamic Solutions. Very trustworthy and not expensive at all. Try giving them a call.

With best intentions he did recommend someone, but the shop wouldn't take up on the job, like others - they can't find parts and don't want to mess with this getrag unit.

I'm thinking it will end up wth me doing all the work in garage and... let's just say I'm not looking forward to wrestle tranny with car on jackstands :/
