    My Click Click '03 Cobra project

    Just wanted to share my experiences with adding an auto to an 03 Cobra with you guys. If you are thinking about doing it, here is your warning. You will see some of the problems I ran into in this thread. A couple times I got to the point of thinking I myself, was not going to be able to complete the project. Wiring is my enemy and there is a little bit involved in this project! Anyways, here goes...

    First shipment of parts back in February...

    now it's time for the real fun to begin! 2nd week in March I got the tranny from Lentech. Time to see how the shifter fits and if the exhaust fits....

    Shifter install

    here is how it looks under the console for the manual cars from Ford



    looking closer you can see where Ford "raised" the tranny tunnel over where an auto floor would be...



    and form underneath it is clear...

    pre fitment the shifter was only about 1/4" lower than the plastic shifter cover. before cutting the shifter was about 1" too high

    Shifter in place and set to the correct height...now to deal with the open space around the shifter plate.



    Original plan was to take some sheetmetal and rivet it around the shifter to block up the holes form fumes, water, noise ect. But of course more help is always better and more idea's can come about. We ended up using dynomat which should clear all of those problems up
