So I finished a little mod that was painted in posts 185 and 188.
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/361049547...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
From this to this.





I also did a test fit on a protege5 rear bumper protector.

Removed the stay rod that goes from shifter housing to transmission case, trimmed down shifter housing and welded it to the floor mount bracket, fitted megan racing short shifter then made the slip plate setup with the cup holder.
In the Day5 pics you can see the shifter pivot is now much higher than stock, the benefits being plenty of clearance to exhaust shield, smaller slip plate area and a more direct shift now that 2 rubbers allowing the shifter housing to move are gone.
