Gated shifter install

I am completing a few loose ends before the car goes off for interior. One of those items is installing the new gated shifter. Does anyone have pictures of an install? In my existing shifter, the cable setup length is opposite the new shifter configuration. Do the cables get flipped to the opposite side or is the length simply adjusted and

they stay positioned in the same place?

Have you driven the car with the OEM shifter? Or in other words are you sure it works correctly as it is configured in the picture? IF not you may have them reversed and only need to flip them.

If you are sure that the old one is correct and works then if you can't lengthen the cables to suit it may be possible to add a short length of threaded tube to the center rod if one ends up a bit too short.

Ty.. Yes, I have driven it and it works well as is. But the configuration is different not only on the cables, but also on the reverse mechanism?
That is why I wanted to see a few pics.
 
Got the shifter installed ... needs little more adjustment to find all the gears. Is there a a different fiberglass center console available from RCR that conforms to the gated shifter or is the original just modified?

Michael, my SL-C was delivered Dec 2019 and below is the center console delivered with the kit, it is a bit narrower than the new shifter. Also, looks like the bracket mounts it offset, that is flush with the driver side of the center 2x6 and overhangs on the passenger side. The pics I have show most center it in the console. Here are a few of my file photos off GT40s labeled by the build name I use to remember who has done what....

Here are some file photos. I especially like Mike’s approach and leave it visible although for my long arms this location seems too far back...
