The new Shifter brace

Post by Keef »

Got one of these new shifter brace's. Was reading about the install. Got a question for any one that knows. Where it say's to trim the front of the tunnel where the shaft goes though. Does it mean the front as toward the front tire? Just the front side? Not part of the top? Around the curve?
Seen a pix of it here before, but can't find it. Thanks any one and every one. Don't want to cut off more than I have to.....
