Car looks sweet. I would love more details on the Fusion shifter though. Did you have to trim the tube and finger inside the tube down and what color car wires went to what color shifter wire for the O/D button to still work? Thanks man!!

thanks, well the p/n from ford is 8g1z-7213-a. i think i paid like $12 for it. i will tell you you have to take the whole damn console out. and as far as the wires, i just had the car on and connected and disconnected them and saw which one worked. i really cant remember. you do have to trim the shifter also. the fusion shifter is held on by a screw that goes all the way through. but that wont work with ours. i put some electrical tape around the base and kinda forced it on. not prefect, but it works, hope this kinda helps

Cool, I though about some epoxy to hold it on. When you say you have to trim the shifter, you mean the shifter "shaft" on the car, not the actual Fusion shifter? Hopefully it wont blow any fuses while checking the O/D operation.Thanks again, your car is sweet!!

yeah the shifter shaft had to be trimmed. im sure you wont blow any fuses, i think it draws very little power.
