Fitting the Shifter Boot
Trying to figure out what to do for the boot, I decided to use the old Nomex shielded boot from the Joe's Racing boot.
Joe's Racing Shifter Boot
I used the existing Joe's racing boot and cut the snaps off and made it a bit smaller by cutting a section out of it and stitching it back up.
The windlace worked perfectly by placing the bottom of the boot inside the windlace and then fitting the windlace on the cover plate. I then trimmed the excess fabric on the bottom of the plate.
The transmission is installed and ready to go (mostly) New lightweight aluminum shift lever with a bit more backwards rake to make it closer to the driver.
Shifter and Boot Mock Up
The new shift plate with the shifter boot and shifter all dropped in place. Now just need some paint up top.
Transmission Tunnel Paint
To finish things off a quick sand and masking of the area to ready it for Trunk Speckle paint. The Shifter Cover also was painted in a similar fashion. The speckle paint hides the crude body work and blends it all in.
