I would explain step by step instructions on how to install floor mats but I cant figure out how to post a message in this thread.


In the meantime Bills Fax-a-Part has an great alternative.

It seems like the higher the C number (generation) the more pressing the need for floor mats. And the lower the IQ

First off, thanks for all the support

Here it is, new shifter, shifter boot and shift console. Went with red to match the car. No parts left over and everything works, a first for me.
