It's pretty hard doing it one handed.

Want a real challenge? I'm struggling through it right now.

Install a keyless entry system on your car. It's a ***** and a half.

Seriously though it's worth it. Chad hooked me up with a 30$ ebay unit that looks like it will work great, but I am battling with the stupid door accordion.

I've given up for now. I'll try again when I am less frustrated.

Nice shift knob too! I'm thinking of going out and buying one. Care to detail the install process?

super easy:
1. remove ashtray
2. unscrew bezel and disconnect lighter harness plug
3. slighly pull up on shifter surround trim (wood or plastic), then pull backwards to free it from center console
4. disconnect switches on the trim, if you have any, and disconnect manual shifter boot if applicable
5. remove shifter light boot for auto trans shifters from the left side, if applicable
6. unbolt three bolts holding shifter housing cover to the rest of shifter
7. lift shifter housing up, pull rubber boot up, and unscrew 15mm bolt half a turn or more
8. turn the shifter around until it unbolts
9. throw out the old auto shifter housing and replace with a chrome BLING shifter gate if applicable
10. replace with a new shift knob and undo everything you just did
11. now you've got a BLING knob with a BLING shifter gate
