Haha!  At first glance, I was thinking you were perhaps stopping a bit short...

 

No, it's about a mile. I checked.

It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Spent a good bit of time rerouting wires and trying to clean up the harness routing in the doghouse.

 

This is about halfway through. Accidentally deleted the photo of the finished product.   <_<

Ran the wires down to the brake light switch as well (it goes under the floor). Should get that sorted next time. Couldn't finish ti because we need a spring for the pedal first...

Tim is not in love with the stock shifter and wanted a cooler knob (don't we all), so out it came and he cut the stock knob off...

Found this cool antique glass door knob that sort of fit the shaft and tapped it for a set screw...

Shifter cleaned up, painted silver to match the dash, and new knob on...

Hoping to get back on the brakes next time. As well as put all the switches and gauges back in so we can tuck the dash harness...   :thumbup:
