Auto Gated Shifter Panel to Manual 5 Speed Panel Conversion
This is not much of a DIY, but just wanted to see if it was possible. I bought a new manual shift boot panel from the dealer for my future manual conversion and decided to test fit it. If anything, this is an excellent upgrade(if it is possible) to those who have the pre-1998 auto shifter because they....are...just hideous looking IMO.
There are however negative effects to doing this conversion, if you have a gated shifter, you will not be able to shift to #1 since the bezel gets in the way. The positioning looks funny when in Drive. You will need to relocate or hide the ECT switch.
