I planned to do this a long time ago when I had the yellow car.<p>As many of you know, the automatic center consoles of the Automatic cars don't match those of the Manual cars. In order to get a manual boot to fit, it was required to purchase (or swap) new center console pieces to fit. Many of us tried to order these pieces, but they were found to be expensive - upwards of $500+<p>Here's a side by side of the auto vs. manual:<p><IMG SRC="http://upload.awineshop.com/files/8/IMG_7775.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Here's a mock-up of the plastic piece which I'd like to make:<p><IMG SRC="http://upload.awineshop.com/files/8/IMG_7776.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Here's how it would install - it would require gluing it using JB Weld around the inner lip of the existing automatic console. <p><IMG SRC="http://upload.awineshop.com/files/8/IMG_7781.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Here's the retrofitted piece side by side.<p><IMG SRC="http://upload.awineshop.com/files/8/IMG_7782.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I'm considering putting in a small run for these, made out of .125" thick plexiglass sheet. The hypothetical model can be seen below.<p><IMG SRC="http://upload.awineshop.com/files/8/shiftbootadapter.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Would anyone be interested? Pricewise, I'm thinking ~$15 Shipped or so, but this number is only preliminary.<p>I have a supplier in China who is ready to manufacture these.<p>Please reply if you are interested, but please DO NOT Instant Message me yet!<p>--Alex
