Shifter boot

Hey guys, not sure if there has been a thread on this.. I looked around and couldn't find one, so I apologize if there is one. Anyways, I want to trim down the shifter boot so that the orange MGW is showing. Has anyone done this to their car? Also what's the easiest way to do it?

That looks outstanding. Also where did you get that insert for the coin holder? Looks much better.

Doing that with the new ones is a no go but with the old style that looks very good.

You can't do this with the new shifters?

It just will not look as elegant. MGW's new shift lever has a (IMHO) overly complex look.

I suspect less expensive to produce as it greatly reduces the amount of swarf (waste) left over from the machining process...

Doing this to the new style shifter will look like a bag of d1cks.

I agree, just tried to put it a bit more delicately. It's a shame to see corners being cut but I understand why. The sculpted lever had to be costly to produce..

I also think its an improvement. They're even including a pre cut piece of dynamat now that goes around the shifter. This design is superior, just needs to be hidden.

Then just find a used old style one on the corral classifieds or wherever. Or call mgw and see if they have any old stock. I would not give up the adjustability of the new one though.

Well the adjustability is why I want it. I just didn't know it would look like poop unlike the older ones.

I like the design and the look is still okay but the other one looked better. I like the the updated one though, just not the look over the first.

So you guys don't like the look of the trimmed boot over the new orange MGW? It looks like crap?

Looks are subjective as any trip to your local watering hole should illustrate to you. If you think it'll look good go for it. If not cover it with the boot or find a 1st generation shifter.

Love the feel and customization but don't really like if the boot showed it. Just my opinion though

Yeah i like the feel and the adjustability over the earlier model but the look of the older one I think was better.
