You'll need to do it yourself because I've already tried to get a trans shop to do it and they dont want to touch it.
You can get a full conversion kit from some of the sponsors of this site. If you know anyone who can do a conversion let me know as I would like to do it too.

Talk to some wrecking yards. $1250 is the going price in Adelaide for the conversion (with computer).

They reckon its too hard and too many problems etc etc.
Too hard to get parts even after I said I could get "EVERYTHING". The only reason I'm selling my Fairmont is because its auto. If I could get it to manual I'll keep it.
