Hey,

Has anyone done any funky s**t with their shift changer handles? I wanna do something different for an EL Futura...

Is there cool ones from other models that'll fit straight on...

Chuck me some suggestions ford brothers...and post some pics!

Auto?
There's a bloke who fabricated a metal one up. Pretty cool, but it'd stand out way too much in my car.
Dellboys has to be my favourite - he's got the entire BA sequential set up going in an EA (?) - I'd love to copy it into my EF sometime!
There was another bloke who fitted a magna one with a bit of modding.
And there's talk of people fitting AU ones (Momo) with some work.
On the net I've seen some universal auto ones - Autotechnica make woodgrain ones and all that too.
But basically, there's sweet fa avaliable that's just as simple as removing the old and putting on the enw!

It's a peice of piss to take the handle off, just undo the nut and then screw the handle off. But the problem is there is no direct fit/replacement upgrade. No matter what you do your gunna have to do some modding, weather it be making the entire thing from scratch or modding a different car one to fit.
Actually, I think there is one that will be a different replacement, but that's an EA-ED shifter. Think there the same fitting. but that's no upgrade

Ask Fraser about a chrome buttoned shifter...

I painted mine, that turned out pretty funky matching the interior.

Dellboy is teh setup I like the BA setup and would liike it in my EF. You can do anything how much money you got.

hey dylan ya wanker - my chrome buttoned shifter is on its way! :twisted:

but, back on topic - best bet, with minimal fuss, would be to pick up a high-series shifter handle, with chrome button, and get it custom-wrapped. make sure you don't get one with a broken button, as these cannot be replaced without big $$$! :?

speak to darren @ FTG - he should be able to sort you out with one! :P

Or there is always the magna shifter.....

You wil find with minimal modification that the Magna/Verada shifters can fit into the EF/ELs and match pretty well colourwise.

Cheers guys...I think i might go the high series shifter and get it leather wrapped...sweeeet. Chrome button should look good - specially with my chrome door handles.

Whos this guy in welshpool?...and how much does he charge to wrap a shifter handle?
