Default MGW Shifter... What a difference!

Hello all,

Just got done installing my new MGW shifter that my fiance got me for my birthday. All I can say is that it makes the car feel so much better, I now understand what all the hype was about.

My one concern is the shift boot now, it is kind of scrunched up due to the MGW shifter being significantly smaller than the OEM shifter. What have other people done to remedy this issue? It doesn't look like crap, but it also doesn't look the best.

Is there an aftermarket company (Forum vendor perhaps) who has shift boots that will fit the MGW short shifter better? Or do I just have to live with the scrunched up OEM boot?


Thanks,


John

Maybe talk with a vendor like Redline Goods and see if they can fabricate something up for you.

Jack,

Just thanking you for the referral to Redline. I got in contact with them today and got everything figured out. Ordered my new boot! I'm really excited.



Thanks,


John
