Hello,

Does anyone have pictures of their installed aftermarket shifter? Trying to figure a way to mount my B&M shifter without drilling new holes.

Thank you in advance.

Is your car factory column or floor shift? Column shift won't have the brackets welded to the floor for mounting a floor shifter. If it's a floor shift car I'd get flat stock or a plate, bolt the plate to the floor mounts and bolt the shifter to the plate.

it's floor.

I was trying to get a better idea on how to bolt the front two bolts to the floor, since the stock mount locations are at a angle.

Thank you Focused, but I meant how they're mounted to the tunnel.

Here are the pics of mine installed hopefully you can see how I mounted it. I mounted the plate to the original 2 back holes. Then made 2 metal strips about 1" wide and 3-4"long and welded them to the plate near the front. Those also screw into the orginal holes for the shifter. I used a 1" piece of square tubing as a spacer for the front of the plate while I was mocking up the plate.

I myself don't have a floor shifter. But what cable would be used? Stock OEM or aftermarket? I guess you would still use the OEM rubber boot on the tunnel. Or would you use a large rubber chassis grommet with a small hole?

No Problem Your Welcome.
I used the after market cable that came with the shiftier.I just used a rubber grommet couldn't use the original hole in the floor. The cable would not line up with the hole in the floor. I was trying to cut as little as possible of the console plate.

if you go with the B&M, you have to use their cable. Years ago, a friend had the Hurst Quarterstick, he was able to use a factory cable.
