the column covers I got were the wrong ones -- they were with the hole for the column shifter and I already ordered the correct ones that will take about 5 minutes to install.

also need a wire harness that goes to the outlets and other plugs in the center console not sure where that even comes from under the dash. but I will figure it out.

I think I cover everything in the video .

you have to search around for used consoles -- junk yards , ebay , craigslist , forums

part and part#'s

neutral safety switch wire harness -- 68024883AC -- list $24.50

floor shift cable -- 52855956AG -- list $66.10

transmission bracket for shift cable -- 52109706AC -- list $21.45

LT front corner closure panel -- 1HR97DK2AC -- list $37.45

steering column cover I will list correct part # when I get them this week , and the other wire harness I need .

the center console you can find from $450 to $900 -- depends on what condition it is in .

Looks really good! I would LOVE to do this mod, but it's just too expensive to justify for me. I guess I'll have to troll around for a steal on a console, might be awhile.

I found mine at a junk yard off of a wrecked truck -- the console RT side panel was broken and the inner was cracked -- I paid $450 -- so they are out there -- call your local junk yards and ask them to find one for you .

the RT side panel cost me $49.80 with my discount.

and the inner crack -- no one will ever see it , its very hard to see anyways.

yea the stupid video is only 24% done so far --

after I got the cable and bracket correct , I moved the shifter through the gears about 4-5 times with no issues , then i moved it around my driveway and things were fine.

I dont expect any issues

thats great. glad to see a thorough write up on how everything comes together. I would love to do this, but like mentioned before, TOO expensive to justify right now. I have too many other upgrades that I would rather get done first.
