YOUR DONE ENJOY!!



OPTIONAL STEP:

Sometime during the production process the shift boot varied slightly in length. To correct this is quick and easy and requires 3 little snips that are NOT visible.

Make 3 small holes to the factory shift boot approx. 4-5mm towards the center of the factory shift boot. This will give you enough slack for the shift boot to function properly. The stock holes will not be visible outside of the boot.

These instructions are excellent. One thing that I can't figure out, though: how do I get the boot over the lip of the shifter nob? The boot hole is far too snug. Could mine be unusually tight? Or am I doing it wrong?

Thanks for a little extra detail on this important step!
