    Trying to support a guy doing this for us but IDK if I can wait months for this. Whats the next best sifter out there? You people who cannot get around to it are lame and shouldn't even have gotten the damn thing. I wouldnt return there core charge, and dub them a late fee on top of it. Killing your business waiting on poor excuse of a V owner.

    Remember you can always just send him your own shifter and get a much quicker turnaround (no core charge). I don't mind waiting .... from what I hear it is well worth it! I couldn't be happier that Brian is doing this for us.

    Good point. 2 day shipping is relatively cheap and should probably be a requirement.. Most guys will do this when they have time and resources, regardless of whether the shifter is in hand. Payment is the easy part..
    Make your plans, give brian a heads up one week prior to shipping. He could easily commit to the turnaround..

    Here is the latest list. The last three people removed haven't received their shifters, but they are in the mail. Also, Lindsay Cadillac is out of UUC bushings, so I'll have to ship without them and refund the $30.

    1. Nicolas B.
    2. Silverio D.
    3. Mike C.

    Sent $330 Paypal. I assume the pricing in the OP is correct. Also working on getting CS mounts. Firming everything up a little. New owner - love this car already.

    You'll be getting a set of poly bushings back from me when I send the core. I already have a pair and I don't think I paid for the ones you sent me anyway.
    Hope to have the shifter installed as soon as I get back to CA.

    I know the installation is fairly straightforward, but does someone have a link to instructions and/or a video? Never have replaced a shifter before; where to start when removing the center console, etc.

    PM me your email address and I'll send them to you. There is no need to remove the center console.

    Any updates on the one I sent in? It's been a while, and I forgot about it somehow. Let me know

    Re: Custom Short Shifter Ordering Process.

    Got the shifter and the new poly bushings installed.... LOVE IT!

    No longer am I searching for gears or smashing the temp controls with my knuckles while shifting into 3rd! The shifter is still at a very comfortable height and the engagement is very quick and precise!

    Great job Brian!

    The total install time took me about 2 hours and that would have been faster had I had someone to hold the shifter while I tightened it down from below the car.

    I thought I'd add some comments to the instructions, if you didn't mind Brian.... things that held me up a little.

    1.) the bolt that attaches the bottom of the shifter to the linkage is a No. 5 allen on one side and a size 13 nut on the other side.

    2.) if you don't have someone hold the shifter while replacing the rivets with the supplied hardware, then wrapping a wire or string from the linkage to the steering wheel worked for me.

    I was going to attach before and after pics, but for some reason I cannot attach. Oh well!

    Hey Brian,

    What kind of wait would I be looking at to get a shifter with bushings?

    Thanks,
