If anyone want the shift lever portion (or the whole kit) and has not contacted me directly, please do so. I only plan on running one batch of the levers this quarter, and I can still get more in this batch. I will need to know in the next day or two though.

Do you mean that if the shifter is installed with TT in the car the foam will have to be modified or with the TT out as well?

There are two separate things here: the shifter (lever) and the front rod elimination kit (big clampy thingy).

The shifter itself is a 5-10minute job from inside the car.

The front rod eliminator may or may not require dropping the TT and definitetly will require extensive modification to the foam.

They are compatible but mutually exclusive components. You can run the shifter with stock rods. You can run a stock shifter with the front rod eliminator. Mix and match.... its up to you.

I'm interested in the shift lever only then. I will be dropping my TT soon but I think I want to leave the foam alone. I could be convinced though

Hans,
I am looking for the complete system. When would you like payment, and how much?

Quote is back for the front pivot replacement kit. If you are interested, shoot me a note. Planning on having a batch of five made unless I get requests for more.

Hans, Put me down for one of the front pivot kits too!

Do you have an estimated cost on those and do you know if it is possible to put it on the TT without dropping it? I'm not too worried about my foam, I just don't want to drop my TT.

I can not comment on installation without dropping the TT. I have not actually tried it.

I can draw the conclusion though that it will depend on the condition of your motor and trans mounts though.... if they are worn out, you will probably have more room and an easier task of installing.

Hans,it looks to me like there are about 9 guys in this thread in the last 3 pages who appear to be interested in the pivot assembly, and that is not counting you and me. However, a couple of them have said something like "I want one too" but only after the previous post has mentioned the pivot assembly; and they may only be wanting the shifter handle.

What will the price be for the pivot assembly, without the shifter handle, if there are 10 or more on the list? Does the list need to include you also or will that need to be in addition to any you need or want for yourself?

Beautiful! Still available? My entire driveline is out (see my other posts/videos/pics) so installing for me is a cinch.
