When a Mustang is fitted with an automatic transmission, T-handle and bezel removal is easy-and so is installation. However, when it has a manual transmission, a shifter boot and escutcheon are involved. Because we have a T5 transmission with a shifter handle from California Pony Cars, there's a faux reverse lockout to contend with. This necessitated having the boot on before installation. We had to carefully cut the carpeting around the shifter, then work the boot underneath the carpeting, followed by the chrome escutcheon, which hides any imperfections.
