    logoris.... I'm from haliburton. Only a few hours north of you.

    I also have had nothing but bad luck with integy. Many have had decent luck with their transmission cases... but I'm hard on transmission cases so I wouldn't buy an integy one myself. Not when REM, FLM and other companies are making such good quality products.

    You know you can paint or dye the plastic one orange. If you dye it, I don't know how it will come out, but you could definetely paint it orange.

    Here is a thought, Fast Lane Machine is known for a quality product and their cases are plain aluminum however MR-Painting .com offers anodizing and you can customize it from there if you are wanting to be color specific or even have several pieces you want to do together.
    I like the orange color also but they are limited in suppliers that offer it for now.

    Also I have found orange aluminum on Ebay. If you do a google search for Venomgroupusa and look for the Ebay link you will find tranny, casters, bulkheads and wheels in orange but I do not know who makes them or their quality but would like to know if someone has experience with them.

    Yeah, FLM makes great stuff. I don't think the venom parts are much better than Integy. I won't buy Integy parts; I've learned from experience that its just not worth it.
