    Can I also bug you to take a pic from the back seat going forward? I am wondering where the knob sits in relation to radio and climate control.

    I guess after all the crap your wife has endured, that would be out of the question without some kind of bribe

    Raise your passenger seat headrest and wedge the phone between it?

    Peterman - open lift gate, fold rear seats down, zoom a bit and take the pic. It'll give less distortion and a better representation of the knob height.

    i'll try that, thanks.... although my pocket-lint-encrusted iPhone SE lens pretty much sucks taking any photo, so i can't promise anything.

    it is stiff to change gears when you're putting around town, but when you're actually driving it - it's a beautiful thing.

    on top of all of that... their customer service is spectacular (small company) and it's priced at about half of the CAE.
    Did you end up finishing it up with the trim and boot?

    i've asked mike @ coby wheel to make me a custom boot that is about 2.5" taller than a normal boot... so the idea is it will look 'normal' upon first glance.
