ok here's a small update, all three of the trans mounts are different not just the one by the radiator. the trans mount that goes on top against the drivers side frame needs to be drilled out of the manual car and welded into place in the automatic car. they spot welded different threaded frame brackets in the different transmission cars!!! HONDA SUCKS. make the same mounting points and different brackets at least. so I'm at the stage where i have to drill out the spot welds and get a welder to my house to weld them back into the automatic cars frame. never seen anything so stupid in my life. ill be working on that tomorrow as well as the dash/dash wiring swap.
