I have an 88 22re auto. The plastics around the column shifter are really brittle and cracked from spending all its time in the southern CA sun and smog. I want to replace them but so far have only found parts for the manual trans. I need advice on if its possible and how to cut the plastic. It would require cutting an opening in front of the ign switch for the shifter to fit on both half's of the cover. Doesn't look like a big deal unless I crack the plastic. I am thinking a dremel tool and warming up the plastic with a heat gun might help. And maybe a couple layers of tape on both sides where it needs to be cut.
