just wondering if a manual console will fit around an auto. Need a new one to finish off my interior and I wanted to make a leather boot to go around the shifter so it will look like a manual. Not that it was my intention to look like a manual :? but thats what seems to be happening :? Just dont like the look of the auto shifter.

So you want the leather gear stick surround? What about the gear knob?



Cheers

If I did I would've mentioned it.

But it was an easy mod, just swap the auto shifter surround for I believe it was an EL GT one (black leather), lost the econ/power button, but who cares.

I like this idea, but can't you use the dash mounted econ/power switch used in the 6 seater wagons?

hmm i think i might have a go at this, could you use a normal EF/EL manual gear boot on the EA-ED manual shifter panel?
