Shift **** Mod Finished (Mostly)

It took a while, but my shift **** mod is mostly finished. Just need to wire it up to the lighting system in the truck. I wired it up to a 4.5v battery on my bench to make sure it works. Behold...



What it looks like turned off...



And one more comparison to what it looked like before the mod...



It came out alright, but I learned a lesson. Krazy glue changes the appearance of sanded plexiglass. The light is somewhat splotched, and even when off you can see light and dark areas under the plastic. The Krazy glue turned everything it touched under the ring clear

Sorry about the crappy "lit" picture, the camera never takes a steady photo when the flash is turned off.

Done. https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...d.php?p=456289

Hopefully the images stay up. They are all hosted on my college's web server, which has had its share of problems.
