This weekend's quick fix is tranny shifter bushings.
The shifting is sloppy in this car so I figure like everything else that has been neglected so have the shifter bushings. When I pulled out the coupler I was surprised to see they were worn but really not that old. I've seen some that are almost completely disintegrated and one that was totally gone and wrapped in electrical tape!!

Here is the slop that has worn the round hole to oblong:

The entire process took maybe 30 minutes. I use a hammer and drift to carefully punch the pin out and then put it back once the new bushings are pressed into place. For those of you who also need to do this I used Pelican Parts Bushing Set part number 99 1758 424/230 (BU06032BK). They are pre-lubed. Here is the worn bushings as compared to new:

Next task was to test fit my Generation II sock replacement intercooler. The core has been changed from stock front-to-back to a side-to-side run which results in more real estate under the factory shroud. Turned out real nice.

Took a picture of the ride, you can see the final version of the wheel caps. The crest is black over silver on the factory charcoal gray cap. Worked out pretty good.
