Default Who has received their short shifters or UD pulley?

As the topic says, and did you have any strange issues with customs if outside the USA (Canada Customs tried to charge me extra $16 for Agriculture Canada to inspect it because they said it was hardwood???) Also how was the install of the shifter, any issues?

Wait... how many people ordered from Canada? Sorry, I dont know which of your guys email addresses line up with what forum names.

They thought it was hardwood cuz I shipped most the stuff through a hardwood business. The guys shipping it were supposed to say it wasnt hardwood but there seamed to be a mixup when I wasn't around.

Hey Zipper how did you remove the old one? like how did you remove the leather cover thing and detach it from the stock shifter. I saw the post on daewootech about removing the shifter but it doesnt help with this first part.

The black plastic thing the leather boots attached to?

It lifts out... but you gotta put pressure on the top going down or on the bottom going up. I can't remember exactly.

you can squeeze inwards and pull it out. no special tools necessary. theres a little black "C" looking thing that is connected to the pin that keeps you from being able to pull the shifter out...pull the "C" off the shaft and pull the pin out. out comes the shifter. removing the leather could be as simple as sliding it all the way down...i havent gone that far cuz i dont really want the short shifter(i have long arms and would hit my elbow). if you cant slide the leather sheath down, just take off the stock knob and slide it off the top. it looks like the way to do that is put it in hot water for about 5 min to soften up the adhesive and then yank it off.. doesn't look like too hard of a procedure...if you actually get in your car and messed around with it, you probably could have figured it out...but i guess it is better to play it safe and than sorry.
