There is an issue with this forum feature, it's nothing you are doing. At present the advice seems to be upload photos to a file sharing site like Photobucket and then use the [img] tags to copy and add the links to your post

Keep following and stay tuned.. the goal is to have it up and running before the end of May / needs to be finished by then. I will finish this tread with a film report for you all.

I'm also doing the same into a standard roundnose estate but am sure you'll be operational well before mine!

Interested in any pics you might have of how/where you ran the shifter cables to avoid tight bends?

Did you need to modify the cable length or just go with the standard setup from the CRV?

you are good with the standard setup.. it will look long out of the car but it works just fine inside the car if you do it this way.!

Tidy Work, are you thinking of doing anything with the gearing or are you going to try it out first.

There is no off the shelf FD for the CRV box. This seems the best option but needs mods to fit
