This stock transmission cover is made taller than stock to accomodate newer transmissions but fits in the stock location. Direct Sheetmetal kits are made from 16 and 18 gauge steel. All are hand-formed in their shop right here in the USA! Each part has been designed so that the average hot rod enthusiast will be able to install it in his/her own garage or workshop. Each kit contains mounting hardware and an easy-to-understand instruction sheet. NOTE: Every car or truck is different, so slight trimming and re-shaping of some parts may be necessary to achieve the best fit.
