Installed my new shifter

So i was able to install my new MGW Shifter today. I am a complete newb at anything related to tools and it took me about a 1.5 hours to do the entire thing, and that included a break for breakfast in the middle. I did get a knuckle buster when i got the stock shifter off, hurt like a biotch. I haven't driven it yet because i'm going to give the silicone sealing 24 hours to be completely cured. I have shifted through the gears though, and it is so amazing. If anyone is thinking of doing a shifter, this is definetly the one to get! Here are some pictures.
And here is a youtube link to the video i took after install.

Holy silicone batman! I would almost be worried about there being blobs of silicone in the trans to be honest. You really only need a little bit. I used less than half when I did my shifter.

It's not as much as it seems. I just spread it around with my finger

I'm waiting 24 hours to drive it so that the silicone will be all the way cured... The wait is killing me.

You change the fluid while you had the shifter removed? if not when you do go to change the fluid, grab a 10$ shifter gasket so that damn rtv sealant isn't necessary anymore, plus when you do go to change the fluid it's such a pain in the a$$ getting the shifter off with that sealant on there, I had to lay underneath the car with a big screwdriver and hammer to bang it loose from underneath, now with the gasket it's a 10 minute fluid change

I didn't replace it, and the shifter is already on so no going back lol... If i ever do have to change it then i'll do it the old fashion way by pumping it in.
