well, my short shift lever is VERY close to being finished. it will be finished today at lunch, i have to get the bushing housing peice welded onto the shaft and then it is finished. if you have been keeping up with this thread "Topic: my short throw shifter lever draft, what do you think?" (do a search), this is what you have been waiting for
i will take pics at lunch and post them tonight. i cant wait to install this tomorrow (maybe even tonight if i am feeling ambitious, i have nothing else to do besides read for Web Design class so...). if you read the original post above, you will see the complete draft of my lever.
my lever is shorter in length than all the others i have seen (i am only 5'7" so this is perfect, expecially with my custom made shift knob (2" tall).
my lever = 8-1/4"
Kartboy = 8-3/4" (guesstimate)
STI = 10" (guesstimate)
it is much like the STI Replica sold by Imprezars.com and cobb tuning, but my lever incorporates the shifter boot seat (unlike all the others out there, which i thought was very important). it was a great deal of work to come up with dimensions and the draft, but i did it for fun and to incorporate my changes
but anyone is welcome to use my design if they wish, i am NOT producing these; sorry, it was just for fun.
this is the draft the machine shop went by that was well worth my time to put together:
