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 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!
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.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.
O jesus, I clicked on the wrong writeup. LOLAre 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.
