people with 20 d300 flip kit

alright well ive got mine apart and i was wondering what you did to cover the old shift rail holes. does it still seal well with those other bolts not holding it on? and how has it been holding up/ any leaks?
thanks, Gary

I went to the boat store and bought two "plugs" (I believe 5/8")

They normall go in the back hull of a boat. I can't tell you how well they work though, 'cause I still haven't got mine back on the road

If I'm thinking the same piece I left all the stock bolt holes, and milled it out around the original shift rail areas to leave clearance for the plugs. I also milled off anything else I didn't need off of that piece.
