xlr8,
thanks for givin me the tip about the fitment of the chrome spacer. After what you said of undoing the stiching i don't think it will fit on the EF gear boot as the top part of the boot looks heaps smaller than your one.

Hmmmm might have to do EF_GuY's custom jobbie, a little trip to the grouse hardware house should fix it, i'll let everyone know how it goes.

I just brought a chrome surround off the t-series that goes around the auto lever.

Its going to be a bugger to install. I have to take out the center console, remove the t-bar and try and unclip the old surround.

any tips on how to easily do this?

Here is what it looks like...

Door handles cost me $15 each
Chrome Gear spacer $10

if yours is an auto i think the auto gear lever from a T-series is $190 RRP
