No. I'm willing to do CHEAP work on anyone who needs this done. Any takers in the SF Bay Area? It's very simple to do. I do not know about the shift light. I'm sure it does. You will need the 6MT cluster.

Well the post alludes / promises too a walk through of some sort. Some sort of spelled out step by step, or maybe a couple of things that you had issues with that required some thought. Something that was close in fitting or didn't fit exactly right / had to move etc.

Maybe a picture or two?

Don't get me wrong the parts list is very valuable information, along with the clutch pedal wiring bit, but it doesn't make someone who can 'change a clutch' feel confident enough to start ripping apart his highly modified machine.

Yeah, I'd really like to talk to them. If we could come up with a good price I'd be all over that.

I think shops are REALLY eager to charge A LOT for this kind of work though.

Subscribed for parts list.

Demolition: If I can source the parts what would you charge to do the install if I brought my Sedan up to you?
