Re: Fiberglass dash.
The shifter wasn't too hard to mount. I'm thinking of changing it out for the standard height - this one is 2" shorter - designed for Camaro/Firebird consoles.
I had to build up the base to get it high enough and it's still a bit too low. Shifting is harder because of less leverage. Just had to rework the cover plate a bit.
The wood on the dash will be changing to curly koa to match trim pieces on the door panels. (I'm a sucker for exotic woods - built a couple guitars and had some leftovers)
