bought a perfect matching fender to replace the smashed one. problem to fit it in my DD i had to take the antenna off. it promptly snapped to spite me (probably because NOTHING broke removing it all the bolts came right out everything went smooth (a challenge here in new england on a 15 year old vehicle) now. i can just swap my base over but how the hell does it come off??

Left it parked while I took my bike to work because the weather is cooling down from the heat wave.. Saw a huge puddle of oil under it.. Going to change out the valve cover gasket once I get home and see if that's the problem.

Its very easy. Just follow the instructions and you are good to go. Basically you go from trans to radiator inlet to radiator outlet to trans cooler inlet to trans cooler outlet then back to trans return line.
That probably didnt make any sense but as long as you are getting a new radiator you might as well put a trans cooler on. Its easier to do with everything off.

Well I've already got a brand new valve cover gasket waiting to be put on, but if it still leaks after that, I'll be sure to check that also. thanks man.
