Zetec interloper checking in to say thanks to the OP and to nemesis for their work on this mod.

I stumbled on this thread and decided to give it a try. 20 minutes of work, and a 5 minute test drive that turned into half an hour later, I was very pleased. Throws are a little shorter, and shift effort is a bit higher, but I like that slightly notchy feeling.

Well done!

PS- for the trimming around the shift boot, wire cutters and a little muscle will do the trick, too.
