Nv3550 Stick

Again, trying to save ourselves a buck, we used a stick from an NV3550 that a friend had given us. Cutting off and rewelding the shifter to get it in the right spot is tricky thanks to a rubber isolator inside the "cup" portion, which starts to melt with just a good tack weld. Take it slow, and have a dip cup handy to drop the shifter in when the rubber starts to melt. Even though we had to clearance the hole that the shifter passes through from the outside of the truck, we were able to reuse the stock seal (shown inside console around shifter).
