If you made a mold of that surround and popped off a dozen or so, you'd make a good buck. Very nice work. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Nice!

I turned my own so I could fit the same kind of disc used on the stock shifter. It's inset into the turning.

BTW, a rubber O ring slipped into the groove on these knobs make them a bit...

My down pipe busted right at the cat last night about 30 miles from home and 11:00 at night. At first I had that nice throaty burble you speak of, then when it broke free it was NASCAR loud and you...

The '94 had the internal seal. Earlier distributors (pre 1991) had a helical channel cut in the shaft to sling the oil backwards.

If I had a nickel....

The two wire connector is for an extra cold-start injector if the car is so equipped. Just let it dangle and sleep tight.

I've found it is best to start skinning the seat base from the back. Get it pulled back as far as it will go--tucking it under the seat back bolsters. Then work forward putting in the tufting hooks...

Looks great. I wouldn't sweat the darkness of the color. You can bet that it was probably that dark from the factory. Sun does some serious bleaching on vert carpets.

Now you're putting me on the spot. :-)

I'd say about 7/8" is correct. You could also go without the spacer and just mount the ball the same height as the riser you made from the shift housing. I...
