A short shift kit is one of the must haves in improving your Mini motoring experience. Unfortunately, many short shift kit upgrades do not allow anyone to retain the assembly box cover due to the extended ball linkage sitting below the cover line. Most leave the cover out completely and some made a cut out just big enough so the linkage can move freely.
Either way, the mechanicals inside the assembly box are exposed to outside elements which can cause dirt/dust buildup as well as interior air and sound pollution. This is NMs solution to the problem. Using a modified OEM ABS cover and adding a powder-coated aluminum hump over it, to cover the cut out sealing the entire inside of the assembly box.
Sold complete with modified OEM cover.
