I'll resurrect this so we don't hijack Jeff's Patriot Off road thread.
The only feasible way that I can see doing this is wait until someone totals a 5 speed MK. I cringe at the thought, hope that it won't be one of our group, but it's going to happen. The Compass Body Repair Manual (CD) tells you EVERYTHING about splicing one back together. So the totalled job + your Cali could be possible. About like dropping a Model A down on '34 rails and putting in a 392 Hemi with a Ford top shifter. Piece of cake!
