I have seen a few people do it on here but can't remember the thread names or the car

Anyhooo, can people post some pics and how they did it with the "lift up bit" for the reverse, did that need cutting aswell?

Cheers

I cut my corsa one down, mainly because I couldn't get that bastard plastic thing off that was glued on iirc. Took me a bit with a hack saw, but I trimmed it a few inches iirc. I left enough so the lift reverse could still be used tucked under the momo gear knob anyway.

Na, long time ago mate. Just make sure you buy a lift-reverse knob then measure it up how low you can go but still being able to use the reverse. I can't remember how much you have to play with but it's not that much anyway I think.
