[color=#000000ost_uid1]To do it properly you need to add on the bottom and cut
from the top. *Don't use a hacksaw and take off the thread
as that will cause heaps of problems with getting knobs to
secure properly. *Take the time to take the shifter out an
have it cut and welded properly. *If you just cut from the
top you it is not a quickshift you need the extra length on
the bottom to do that.
