Manual or Auto?

Manual can be made to fit, just requires modification by taking the existing boot
off the console clip and glue/staple the VZ in to place.

Im having this done to mine at the moment with a modification with the 5 speed
face plate instead of the 6 speed that comes standard.

Pics will be posted when I get it tomorrow.

Yeah they fit square down in to the VY SS console, but they can be made to fit
the VX oval shape. Here is a pic for a reference.

Thats basically what mine will look like, but my car is white, and have a silver dash so
ive gone for the silver stitching. Seeing my car is a 5speed, it wont have the silver
face like in that pic, but ive taken off a 5 speed face from a VY S gear knob, and will
be glued down in to place.

Well its done, I think its come up ok :w00t:

5 speed face from a VY 5 Speed manual, glued down on an SS leather knob.

Havent been able to see what it feels like really changing through the gears
quicky cause the glue needs to set for about 12 hours, but so far it feels good.

Its smaller than the stock one that comes with it. :D
