It's unseasonably cold here so no work on the car outside yet (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif). Figured maybe I'll work inside on the shifter this weekend. I didn't see a thread on restoring the shifter. Is this something that just requires a good cleaning, or should it be disassembled, cleaned, painted, and new grease added? Pics of mine below.
