After seeing some TH400 cars with that neat shifter this weekend, I decided to spruce up the ol' girl...
From this.....



To this....


Shifter in Park




Shifter in Drive

The shifter is from Autozone $19.99,it's for Auto/manual cars, the shift boot is from Honda $39.99. The seats are out
of an S2K, and the wheels is from a 2001 Celica GT-S.


The manu button is still underneath the leather boot. I relocated the O/D switch to the opposite
side of the shifter underneath the boot. also. Works great !!! PITA to do but it's woth it. :D

I'll prolly get a dark charcoal carpet. Too much black as there is. Seats,doors,dash...
Here's an interior shot just for you and an exterior ones too !!! You can tell which pics I took !!! I suck with this new camera !!!




The gold you see in these pics is the paint. It has a gold pearl on top of the Ren Red.
Thanks go out to member Dayzzie for these pics !!!:D

what kind of brakets did you use for the s2000 seats?

thanks

The front holes had to be wiggled out a lil. The back brackets had to be cut off and re-welded 2inches forward. No biggie. $50 by a local.

Ok I must say that is the sweetest color red I have ever seen. Good job. Did you just add the boot to the stock auto surround? I am assuming because you didn't say anything about getting a 6-speed surround.

Yes, I've met/broke bread with Marla at the BBQ I hosted this past weekend.
Go take a look at the pics in the thread here... http://www.supraforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=422312


The shitter has been changed. :D

nice ride. What size tires are those? What's your suspension?
Thanks, I have 275/30/19 rears and 235/35/19 fronts. I'm sitting on the Eibach/Koni setup.

Very nice...looks good

Thanks Alex. I just reused the auto surround. this was a spur of the moment thing. I was walking
down the aisle in my local Autozone and the shifter caught my eye. You no what happens with
idle hands....

I'll get a 6spd surround eventually.

LOL, def threw me off as well

Oh wow I might do this too lol. My automatic shifter has scratches already and it collects dust so I might as well right? How long did it take you to do all this?

Dangggg! thats some nice little upgrades to your interior. I like everything except the S2K seats, they look good just not my cup of tea. you mind doing a little write up on the install of the shifter w/ OD buttion. Mines look like shit, the leather part on my is all beat up.

Yes JP you still have the O/D and Manu buttons. The O/D button is to the left of the shifter,
under the leather boot. You can easily hit it with your hand on the knob. The manu button
is on the right of the shifter knob under the leather. Drive with it for a while and you'll get used
to the locations.


You push down on the knob to move it into gear BTW.

I took me an hour to do this. most of the time was for engineering how everything would work/go.
As far as the write-up, i wish I would have taken pics. But I'll do JP's and take pics.

Yeah, I feel the same way. After I saw your pics i said eff it and ordered the knob and the boot off of ebay right after. They were about $25 for both shipped. If the e-bay boot sucks then I will replace when I get a 6speed surround. If the knob feels like crap, I will just get a genuine MOMO, no big deal. :)

Got a question that might sound stupid. But does the shifter need to be an auto shifter or can it be one for a manual ???

And if it needs to be an auto, can it be one like this:



Fits all Toyota and Lexus models vehicles with gate type automatic transmission (without overdrive button on the knob itself).

and how do you rewire your OD button somewhere else?
