Default Removing stock shifter?

I want to remove the black shifter that your knob screws onto. My plan is to cut a section of the stock shifter out to lower the overall height.

I did this on my last HB and just welded it back together while it was still bolted in. This go around I wanna do it better if possible.

so what is your question? how to remove the shifter?

1. remove your shift knob.
2. remove the boot. theres like 12 10mm bolts around the base of the boot.
3. then slide the boot off.
4. then you will see 4 10mm bolts at the base of the shifter, remove those then remove the plate.
5. then you will see a snap ring. (i usually remove it with a set of needle nose pliers).
6. once that is out you can remove your shifter. be careful because there is a metal ring in there that is somewhat important so don't lose it.

if you have a number or email address I could send you some pictures of what I did just yesterday. 6 1/2 inches shorter.

I took out my seats then lifted up my carpet to get to the screws under it. I ended up cutting my carpet to make it easier for me as I'm not worried about a line.

all it is is 1 snap ring after you take the boot off.

the bottom of the shift lever (where it gets bigger) actually has rubber inside. the levers are two pieces.

I cut the threaded section off of the top of the lever then seperated the two pieces and cut all of the rubber off (hardest part imo) then I had a good friend weld the threaded section to the cleaned up lower section. Easy peasy. I thought about cutting more of the lower rod off butt im glad I didn't. Now my shift knob I made is touching the stock boot and the boot is fully collapsed. My wife is awesome with a sewing machine so I'm going to ask her politely if she could sew me a new boot.

I did take some decent pictures of the process I just can't figure out this photobucket thing on my phone. No computer at the moment.

After I cut the upper piece of the shift lever off plus the threaded section.



All together



The difference is amazing!
