Here’s something every shift-tower-equipped Sprite needs. It’s too easy to scratch your painted shift tower, and it always seems to be in the way as you load and unload or work on your car! Our shift tower second skin is a paint protector that keeps you from scratching the nice paint work underneath the tower. We’ve learned from daily work in our shop that it’s too easy to scratch this painted surface on your transmission tunnel, so we started requiring a cover such as this one on all jobs once the car enters our building. It’s such a good idea we decided to make and offer them to you! These covers will protect your shift tower from chips and scratches, but it’s also a nice idea if your car has a beat-up shift tower and you’re not interested in repainting it. Perhaps this cover is just what you need to spruce up your cockpit! We recommend that you pop one of these on your tower anytime you sit down in your car for service. Keep your finish looking good for years to come!
The Austin Healey Sprite (MKI-IV) and Mg Midget’s (MKI-III) had this hard shift tower up until late 1969. Afterwards, they went to a soft vinyl shift boot.
