It's still not here :waiting:

They said it should be here by now but keep waiting. They'll start a claims process and will re-ship it once a solid month has passed.

Date ordered: 2-28-10

Date of confirmation email: 3-1-10

Date of shipment: 3-5-10

Should arrive: 3-15-10

The crappy part about it is I have everything all taken apart and ready to go, just put in my TWM short throw, took stock boot off... might have to just put stock boot back on for now :computermad:

PS: you have Herculean grip. I've given the e-brake some pretty hefty tugs and it won't budge yet...

I had no issues installing mine. Ive noticed that the top part of the boot where it rubs the plastic is wearing a bit prematurely, other than that i love my SST and ebrake boots. Itd be awesome if they made a baggy ebrake boot though!

Hmmmm...........mine had plenty of clearance between the plastic top and the e-brake slider, maybe you can show me a photo. Once I get my car back I'll take a look to see if I can find a solution.

I'm also concerned about the top part of the e-brake that slides under the plastic. I checked to see if I had any clearance but it's pretty tight. Can you guys post photos of the wearing if their is much. I want to pick up both, looks like a huge improvement. Hopefully I can put my order in tonight.

Thanks
Josh

There is a little bit of rubbing that I can see when the ebrake is in the disengaged position... I haven't had it installed long enough to give any real feedback on wear, but I'll update here in a month or two. In the mean-time, I used leather conditioner on it to try and "lube" it up so it slides between that tight clearance... it's only noticeable in one spot, so there's a "high point" in that area that sits right about in the middle, between the base of the handle and the far end of the leather boot. So it only rubs for about 1" of the whole thing.

Oh and I did pull it toite when I wrapped it initially.

That little plastic over the back part of the handle, i rubbed it slightly with very thin grit sand paper to get rid of the sharp edges and re-installed the plastic boot before the handle, very tight back down onto the mechanical arm.

Zero rubbing.

Are you smoking salvia out of a bong???

The way how-to's work on this forum, they're put in a single post in the how-to section and a link is supplied to return you here, to the discussion of it. The how-to is placed in pdf format I believe as a downloadable link in the how-to (single post, mind you!) thread.

No, no pictures. I'll finish everything interior-related before Spring. Right now still working on a solution for replacing that "chrome" ring around the shift boot because the stock trim piece will not fit back on to the new leather shift boot.
