ok, so I FINALLY got around to doing this conversion. I delayed it for a long time for few reasons, 1st i knew i had some welding to do and, at the time I had no 50amp outlets in my garage and 2nd I knew a previous owner had glued the carpet to the floor and it was in great shape and i didnt want to ruin it pulling it up. I brought the car to my dad's cause he had the welder and the outlet, haha. With the help of my dad and my 12 yr old son we tore into this. I can honestly say, while it's a very cheap shifter and I WILL be changing it to a Hurst, the kit from National Chevy is very easy to install. I am really not much for blogs or threads so I will do my best to take you along w/me through this little adventure. 1st we pulled back the carpet and removed the cover over the tranny in the floor.
