New Pistol grip Shifter with Tap Shift Installed

Hi all....I just finished installing my new Pistol Grip Shifter with Tap Shift from CFD(Cartersfabanddesign) and I just want to say "What A Difference)!! I looked at the new paddle shifters from Hurst, but the paddles on STILL on the steering wheel(And that is what I wanted to get away from)!! I use my tap shifters 95% of the time while I am driving and this set up is SO MUCH EASIER to use!! Especially when you are turning!! This is well worth the investment compared to the Hurst unit! And George, the owner, is wonderful to work with. Took me about 1 1/2 hrs to install, took the car for a ride, and just LOVE It!!!! I would highly recommend this product to anyone that uses the tap shifter a lot!!!

I just told the hubby that this is what he's giving me for Christmas, birthday, anniversary, whichever comes first. I've already PM'd George to let him know to expect an order from me soon! This is just what I've been wanting, I don't use my tapshift as much as I'd like!
