Welcome to the forum.  Great color Redline, sorry to hear about the plant.  Do you have something else lined up?

Ronnie, welcome to the Kappa Performance forums! I too am sorry to hear about the demise of the Windsor transmission plant. I am a tradesman at GM in the St. Catharines powertrain plant where we make parts that they use in the transmissions that they build in Windsor.

Ron (GXPinKC) I'm sure will chime in before long and will ad you to our list of Canadian members. Please take a second to update your profile with your location so everyone will know where you are from.

It's great to have you here Ron. Again, welcome to the board!

Welcome from someone born in Windsor, raised in Belle River, but alas now out west (since 79)!  I was going to say that techsol would be happy there was a new member in the area, but it seems you already know each other.
