Anyone using a CAE shifter ?

I bought a CAE shifter years ago and now am getting ready to install it. I have no instructions and the only one I have seen on line shows the center tunnel cut down and made flat for the install. If you have done it please post some pictures.

Thanks

Hello

you don't have to cut anything, just take off all the existing tarboards of the pan to sit directly on the sheetmetal. BUT I show you what I made as I felt it makes it sit more rigid so all of the movement goes on shifting and not twisting the shifter











The shifter in the pictures is actually set the other way -the night hours are tough!- but anyway you get the point, hope it helps a little

Oh I forgot you'll have to shorten the hand brake if you have any as it messes with the shifter

Friendly

Thank you Dimitrios! I will build that set up, looks easy enough. What is the body kit on that lower beetle? You need to show us pictures.
