nice diy.... bud dude, clean your car lol
Alright so at the request of another vortex-er, here is my own DIY for retrofitting the mk4 shift knob, boot and trim ring into your mk3
Please correct anything I may have done or typed wrong and I want to apologize for the cell phone pics but my new camera seems to have grown legs and disappeared
Dremel with a cutting wheel
First: Remove the plastic piece from the shift console, next inspect the trim ring around the mk4 shift boot and remove the trim ring
Next take the trim ring, place it on the paper and trace the inside making sure to keep good accuracy then cut out the center
Should look like this when done
Next tape the paper to the plastic piece that holds the boot and start cutting making sure to be very careful not to trim too much off.
then put it all together
Put it in your car and you shall have this (I will eventually be shortening the height of the shift knob)
then once it fits nicely your all done! drink a for your success
