Installed my new shift knob!



Very easy install. I just unscrewed the old shifter and put this one on. I did have to drill a hole on both sides to screw it in. I also Di-Noc wrapped the shifter surround and that sleeve thing(whatever that is)

I Di-Noc wrapped the radio bezel today and installed Andrei's blue conversion! Only thing I got left to install for the led conversion is the gauge cluster. I am going to do that tomorrow!

Before



Wanted to see a before and after shot together, wow what a difference!

Thanks again Starfuryt550!!! They are awesome, and really easy to switch over!

Thanks! I love the phone holder, best position to mount your phone by far! Plus it looks OEM

Not much of an update, I have slowed down on it till after the snow melts, still big things to come

I did install strut tower cap plugs today, for me they required a lil modding because of my suspension setup, but for all others, they should be a direct swap!

Before


After I had to drill a hole, then dremeled it to give it a nice finished look.


It's all about the little details
