I changed the oil and filter and everything looked great so the trans itself seems to be healthy. The lock up is slipping a bit and throwing a code (Original converter with 202,000 miles)
Anyway, while I was under there it all looked pretty straight forward but you guys always seem to have a trick up your sleeve.
Unbolt converter from flex plate, slide trans out, remove old converter, fill new converter with fluid, install new converter on trans... Before re-installing trans here is a little trick i learned after doing a bunch by myself, using one of the inspection cover bolts fasten a 10mm wrench in a position where is holds the converter in place. This will prevent it from sliding off the input shaft when your installing.
