So finally changed the Trans Fluid,...my transmission is probably smiling now!
I used 4 quarts of Royal Purple 'Synchromax' MT Fluid, which 'BTW' is harder to locate than I thought!
I inspected the old fluid and had some very small shavings in it.
I'm thinking about getting a 'magnetic plug' to catch all the crap that might still floating around.

GM holding on the ZL1 parts turn out to be true...

Those sidemarkers look great! What paint code is GCO? Same yellow so you can use them on the side skirts?
