Maddog's STS 72-2 installed.

Post by King Crab » Mon Feb 11, 2008 6:01 pm

Well, I've had this thing of beauty installed for a little over a month now, and finally have some pictures to share. I must add that the assembly was a piece of cake to install, even with the Booger bushings. The Maddog STS 72-2 is solid and smooth, and is a joy to use. With the console in you would never know what lurks below.

I should take the seats out of my car and clean it out like that.

How do you like it?

Looks great man :thumbup: Makes my dirty car (although the interior is cleaner than the outside) look even dirtier :banghead:

I have been contemplating the shifter seriously ever since I saw livid's 80% :shock: Your testimonial (and everone else's) make me really want one!
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

I want to Thank all of you for the nice comments, and I want you all to know that it's very much appreciated. Speaking for myself, I value the opinions expressed here on 2GN. And that most 2GN'ers are proud of what they have accomplished and/or have done with their Neon's. Being 1 of 76, or 1 of 13, or even 200 of 200...... Facts are facts and I don't feel that there's anything wrong with voicing the facts. If I didn't get all this useful information and apply it may car would still be stock (as it was for the first 5 1/2 years of her life).

MoxHair This is more for you as you may understand where I'm coming from.

Now the rest of you can flame me all you want for the next pictures I'm about to show. But know that this is one small part that I did to make my baby an extension of who I am. GO - KINGS - GO.

Cool shifter! I would like the back seat if you replaced that team's first letter with W instead of a K! :lol: Very original!

I like the back seat cover.. where did you get it.

"Lucky" Luc Robitaille jersey right next to the "Great One" :rofl: The 2 players that helped make hockey in the Southern Parts of the Country.

I need to get some Small Sabres thing to put on my car. As I am OCD when it comes to clutter its hard to find something lol.

oh.. and Sabres v Senators in 15minutes.

To be honest, it's not a seat cover. It's actually a thin blanket I received when my wife so lovingly bought me a 6 game mini pack for Christmas in 06'.

Great shifters. :thumbup:

I am kind of surprised that you went with Booger Bushings on the shifter, however.

I HAD them on mine, and I couldn't STAND them..... A day after I installed the shifter, I removed them and went back to the stock bushings !!

Don't get me wrong, the Booger Bushings are a good product. I used them on the cable ends at the transmission, and left those there (they'll never rot or go bad.)
But when I had the Boogers installed at both ends of the cables (at the trans and at the shifter), it was so damn stiff, normal driving became a pain in the rear.

Now I have the Booger Bushings on the cable ends by the trans, and stock bushing in the Maddog shifter, and I'm very happy with it.

Makes me wish that I have an MTX, but I kinda like those cover seats though. :D

Edit: It wasn't a seat cover, it was a blanket.

To tell you the truth NickKo I actually have had the Boogers for almost a year now. The stock bushing that was on the transmission side (bigger bushing) had disintegrated completely. I had sooooo much play at the shifter end it wasn't good at all. The Dealer wouldn't sell just the bushings alone. They only sold the cable with the bushings for $180.00.:banghead: That's when, through our beautiful family 2GN, I found out about the Booger bushings for $20.00. That was a no brain-er. No offense Danteneon. Anyway to make a long story short, They were already there so I just went with it. And as with what MoxHair said, I too found that after a week of use they did loosen up.
