I have seen several people do these ZHP lighted mods. All either have glue showing or light leaking around the edges. The way I did it, with the trimmed down black ring (A) that fits snuggly inside the modified ZHP, it seals the light from escaping around the edges and also gives the lighted shift pattern a place to rest without any glue necessary. The biggest benefit I see with doing this yourself is, if you wanted to go back to stock, all you have to do is order a new one-peice OEM shift/boot and just pulg it back in. Another big benefit that was important to me was to use the stock LED board. The stock LED has 6 tiny LED's which provides an EVEN distribution of light over the entire pattern. Some of the aftermaket LEDs are bulky and maybe only use 2 LED's.
