Still am finding Corvette parts here and there, even though I have not had one in the garage for about a year and a half now -
Have the following items (sorry for picture quality, I have a good camera at work I will use if you need better pics (and I think you will!)
(4) SS hoses from CCA, never installed - $60 Shipped. I'll post pictures if interested, this was part of the small hose kit and items I never got around to installing. Very nice show quality!. If I recall, CCA would sell hoses separately so this is a cheaper way to get that custom engine bay. I'll throw in a parts manual CD, found that in my desk at work the other day (one 5/8" hose not shown in picture)
Eclipse CD7100 HU, Brand New - $250 Shipped
Story here is that I sold my car and a week before I was to meet the buyer my HU cut out (I originally had a CD5000 and updated to CD7100 as it had more features). I promised the new owner that I would fix before transferring car and not knowing what was wrong purchased a brand new unit off of Ebay. Once I got into the dash, I discovered I had a loose wire in the main connector and easily fixed. I hung onto this brand new unit thinking I would put it into another vehicle but never did. I originally paid $600 for this unit when I upgraded my system and found this HU had one of the best reputations for musical clarity. I had it hooked up to JL Audio Speakers and amps (search forum under my name and you can see system). Has CD, USB, Equalizer, Color Display, and is HD, IPod and GPS capable with peripherals. There is a USED one listed on Ebay now that is selling for $350! Unit has quite a lot of capabilities w/ 7V pre-outs; This is a great HU and part of the best system I ever owned.

I cannot post photos at work thanks to our new web filter system but can e-mail. If you search my user name, you should be able find a pic of the SS hoses, I had them listed once before. If you need to see something specific, send me a PM with your e-mail and I'll see about sending them when I can to my camera.
As far as the column bypass, the installation instructions are included.
I've been thinking about shortening mine, but it might be easier to do yours...
Did you re-thread? Factory thread size?
It's been a long time since I used this shifter but I believe it is an inch shorter bby the time you get the **** threaded down onto the shifter. Yes, factory threads, 9/16-18 if I remember correctly...
