I took a few minutes to straighten out the shift rod (it was bent), then I prepped the shifter box and shift rod for paint (sanding). I put blue painters tape across the bottom of both sides of the shifter box because I will need raw steel to weld the box to the frame with. The next photo shows them painted yellow. Then after all those parts dried, I applied the orange and subsequently, the red. They turned out great! If the weather cooperates maybe I can install them all tomorrow. Enjoy the pics!
