I was running the hurst stick and ball, places it perfectly and I could make the center console work.
But few weeks driving with it, I get the itch to go back to the short stick, and man it feels good to shift. All I know is probably a few weeks later I'll have desire to go back to a longer throw, never ending cycle 😂. Problem with the tick short stick is that it clocks it all the way to the left, so making the center console insert becomes a challenge, and then on top of that with not being able to make my mind up I'm just going to be patient and run it as is.
The hurst leather knob almost makes it look like an auto which I kinda like.
As you can see being 5'4 - 5'5ish my seat needs to be up for me to reach the pedals comfortably...
Once I can find a trim ring for not so expensive then I can remake the middle section out of abs plastic and try again.
And I've went through a good like 3-4 different shifter placement iterations but every single time I went back to the short stick setup by tick. So I'm done trying to adjust the position of the shifter and just need to adjust the console around it.
So I guess instead of trying to find a different trim ring I could repair it.
But to do so requires me removing the leather, using plastic filler to fill the spot it was cut at. Then re-wrap with new leather.
But issue #1 is, I removed the staples on the inner side expecting the leather wrap to come off, but it seems glued on the outside? What would be the best way to sand it off without damaging the actual plastic portion of it.
