Question 5sp gear shifter surround in fairmont

soon i should be doing an auto to manual conversion on my fairmont but it occured to me last night that i am going to have a problem with shifter surround and boot colours.

my interior is the beige/coffee sort of colour and the bit around the gear shifter is brown and as far as i know there was no falcons, futuras or xr's with this colour, just grey.

so my question is, how am i going to change the colour of the surround and the boot?

You will find that the gear boot is the same colour in all interior variants. The plastic surround and boot are grey all models. My mate had a mustard colour interior and his shifter surround and boot were grey. I've never seen any other colour.

Not sure if this is what you mean.

Re: 5sp gear shifter surround in fairmont

Just went to supershit and bought some vinyl primer and vinyl paint and clear coat for protection...

All up cozt about $30 for the 3 cans...

Cheep as chips. I used 2cans of black, 1 can of primer, 1 can of clear to do everything that is grey, besides doors...lol

Cheers, Rayos
