Well at least you have been through it once before. Have not been keeping track. Are they coming off the line now? I thought it was not til January before they start rolling down the line.

The kegerator made it to the front entrance for final assembly and test run up before it slides into it's new home. Got a case of Pumpkineater Ale inside with the tempature sensor taped to one of the bottles. Pour a bottle tomorrow after work to confirm correct tempature and slide it into place and hook up the 1st keg. Love it when a plan comes together.

Wow! You almost have to be an electrical engineer to set the digital controller up. Had to get our tech guy at work to get me going down the right path. So............armed with my new found knowledge hopefully I'll have success to night after work to set it up correctly.

News from the dealer today. At this point they feel it's no noisier then one on the lot. I beg to differ but, they are going to let me listen to it, to compare. The halo, oil cooler, wheel are fixed. As well they replaced the USB module do to Ipod issues.

Back to the tranny issue, I asked them to pull the drain plug to look for metal and they agreed. Service Manager says the tranny complaint is well documented and the only fix in the future would be a new unit. Which by the way should have been done in the first place.

Although I had to jump through a hoop today at the dealer. They gave me a 2011 to test drive today to compare the tranny noise........ no comparison. I had a nice yellow one. I stood my ground, the tranny is coming out. Of course we have to check the ECM first, told them to fill there boots. Drove off into the sunset with the rental SIM Impala. Great Driving day up here in the north......................need Pumpkin back.

The tranny saga contnues..........................they feel they will yank it out and find nothing wrong with it. Even though my tranny noise is rated at a ten and a new one is a two. However they have agreed to drain and strain the fluid. I can only hope they find a bunch of junk in it.

Wow busy guy! I was suppose to hear back from the dealer by the end of the day yesterday after the fluid change................ maybe things didn't go the way they hoped. If I had a farm I would be almost willing to bet there is a bunch metal in the fluid.

Thanks it was a fun build and the kegerator works great. I know it was a little off topic, but it was a bigger bang for the $$$ then buying one. I'm back on track now.

It's been a day and a half since I have heard from the dealer. I was under the impression they were going to drain fluid by the end of the day yesterday. Hmmm. They don't seem to be in a hurry to give Pumpkin back now. The suspence is killing me, to know the results. Might be plan B for them now.

Headed out to pick Pumpkin up. It's a great day up here for a drive. They still don't want to do anything with the tranny. They say the tranny fluid is clean. Meeting with Heliwrench to compare his tranny noise to Pumpkin and then were taking his Camaro to the dealer to compare. They have almost equal KM's on them.
