Alright, I've uploaded some pics and created another DIY for the replacement of the shiftboot.

Over the past few days, I had some time, so i decided to sew myself a new shift boot, which i did...as well as sewing a new e-brake handle cover to match.

Here's the DIY for that. as well those of you having trouble removing the grey coupling that connects the stock boot to the stock ****, there's a few pics in there to guide you along so that you can fasten your stock boot to your aftermarket ****.

enjoy!

i think the people who got the momo said they had to use a screwdriver to push it down into the little slots.

regarding tehs hort shifter..there's no short shifters out for our car.

however there are short throw adaptors from solo and dc sports.

i have a diy on that
it's in this thread:
