Give it a day or two and it should work, Angelfire is trying to pull some bull by saying I only have 20MB of space to store files when I have 50MB because I signed up when they gave you 50. I deleted my files down to under 20MB so they should unblock the page.

Cool I just did this. It took about 20 minutes :biggrin:

I took it all apart hacked off about 2 inches, rethreaded it. When I reassembled it I left out the reverse lockout spring and removed the pivoted part of the reverse lockout. Every thing is nice and tidy :)

Thanks for the detailed how to guys :)

I removed the entire plastic piece (the one on the right in the image) and cut the shifter 1.75". I'll probably cut it down another inch or so. Looks soooo much better without the plastic piece.

So I went to go try this today...but how do you get the shifter off the base? I saw what looked like a locknut at the base, but it would not come loose before the plastic starting giving. I'd really like to have the shifter out of the car to cut it so that I can use my bandsaw to cut it and belt sander to round the tip.

Thanks,
Jonathan Baker

The tool or the set is called a Tap and Die set.

Another suggestion for cutting... is using a plastic bag, and poke the shifter shaft through the
bottom of it, and cut inside the bag(I used my dremel) you could also use a milk jug to catch all
the metal... might be tight though.
