Bought a twin stick recently. Pics from mods to install in my rig.
Originally my rear case shift boot was a 2wd shift boot. Yes i am going to paint the ring.
I simply cut to fit. Pretty easy. Just putting this out there for ideas.

Alright. I went ahead and installed the twin stick today. Like everything else in my life, once wasn't really enough. I had to disassemble the stick to monkey with the vent....
I also ended up tucking the twin boot into the fold of the first boot. Yes DS stick is close, but probably .5" from the seat

A little bit more to this.

These sticks not being metric threads has been really irritating. So i broke the sticks out again.
Rethread/reseal/finish.
New M12x1.25 threads
New inner boot
New pivot bolt and o-rings. Added a small chamfer for the o-rings.
Position adjustment

I damaged the little inner boot at some point. I needed a new one and don't really want to deal with this particular vendor anymore. Some Google-fu said that the boot is a D18......
Anyway the boot i received didn't match the sales pics that match my damaged boot.
So i modified the top plate by opening it up another .25".
