Glad you got that squared away

Awesome start Kyle...about time you got this up. Owen has done a great job on my car, and I know he'll take good care of you.

UPDATE:

After Owen replaced the incorrectly installed rear main seal, low and behold.. what did they find???

The driveshaft was one bolt down... is it bad that I am not surprised that the other shop forgot to put in all the bolts
