Oops, yeah I forgot the shift **** itself was changed several weeks ago. I had one just like it with the button on the side, but it was not leather. I lucked out and found this one which matches the shiny leather on the one I had stock. It'* from a Grand Am. I'm not sure what I will use the button for yet, but I'll think of something.
Bill, this one isn't sewn for the time being
but I have sewn buttons before, and other small things, mostly for the ex though.
All I did to install this was remove the 2 screws under the ashtray to lift it up. I removed the old boot and slid this one down in. I made it long enough so that it would stay tucked underneath. Very quick and painless.
