Effective September 24, 2004, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors (the
"Audit Committee") of Transpro, Inc. (the "Company") selected and engaged BDO

December 31, 2004 and BDO Seidman, LLP advised the Company of its acceptance of
the engagement. During the two most recent fiscal years and through September
24, 2004, neither the Plan nor anyone on its behalf has consulted with BDO
Seidman, LLP regarding either (i) the application of accounting principles to a
specified transaction, either completed or proposed; or the type of audit
opinion that might be rendered on the Plan's financial statements, and neither a
written report was provided to the Plan nor oral advice was provided by BDO
Seidman, LLP that was an important factor considered by the Plan in reaching a
decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii)
any matter that was the subject of a disagreement, as that term is defined in
Item 304 (a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304
of Regulation S-K, or a reportable event, as that term is defined in Item 304

inquiries by BDO Seidman, LLP in connection with the retention of such firm.
