Mitchman There are also electric ones that attach to the trans with lights on the dash.

The one from Ididit is dirt simple to install. A few screws hold the 'needle' and the housing in place on the outside of the column.

It sounds like the pointer attaches to the shift cone with 2-sided tape. The PRNDL indicator is screwed to the stationary housing at the very top of the column (turn-signal switch) housing.

Make sure that you have a current version of Adobe Reader installed on your PC, and then go directly to IDIDIT's website to download / view that PDF file.

You'll find it on the Resouces tab, under the Guides & Tips heading. Scroll down the page, almost to the bottom, to find: Column Add-Ons Instructions

Now pick the Shift Indicator with Housing Installation Instructions link to download the PDF instructions.

knight hawk SHIFT LEVER IS ON THE COLUMN. ONLY OPENINGS IN THE TUBE ARE FOR THE WIRING HARNESS. tHE PERSON THAT BUILT THIS 'CAR' DID many THINGS WRONG AND UNSAFE. I AM SUPPOSED TO CORRECT IT !

You didn't say the shift lever is on the column... It would be on the floor shifter if so equipt. You can get a sender and indicator for the dash. I wouldn't build a car without one, and some states may require one. My wife.... valet parking.... tire store grunt... no bumpers. Yea, they are a good idea.
