Awesome DIY Shifter MOD!!!!! 6Speed

Alright I have talked about this for a while and haven't seen any pictures of it out here and so I finally decided to put some up to show you all what it looked like. And let me tell you it makes a big difference in your shifting. And it is greatly complimented by the neuspeed short shifter. If you have a dremmel (preferrably an air powered one) and a tap and die and some time or someone who will re-thread it for you, you are set. You don't have to re-thread the shifter to stock specs, if you want you can thread it to whatever you wish (must be larger than stock though), and change the thread of the shift knob itself as well, this is how i did it and it made it much easier, and stronger.

Forgive the crappy pics, the car is filthy...don't know what that is on the shift knob, and i had just got done putting my new wheels on and washing and waxing the car so my arms were a little shaky.

but the best part is if you have a buddy who has the tools/know-how this mod is 100% free and the results are worth a lot...

would if i could...gonna be hittin up the beach then....but i promise it isnt that hard...finding someone with the tools is the key....if you can find a machine shop that will do it it wont cost you more than 50 bucks id say....the easy way to do it is to go ahead and buy a new shifter from majestic honda...like 40 bucks or so...dont remember...and take it to someone and let them do it on that one and then switch it out so you don't have to have it out of your car...it isn't a quick task so it may take a day or two to get done....

Yours look nice. How does the shifting feel? I've been debating whether I should get a short shifter or not.
Here's mine:
