Super Mario Brothers 1-UP Green Mushroom? Check.
Too much other, more important **** to do? Check.
Useless drill with bad batteries? Check.
Falling victim to my OCD and doing this pointless and awesome mod anyway? Check.

Instructions: (See post #75 for more detailed/updated instructions.)
1. Drill 12mm hole in bottom of mushroom.
2. Thread 12mm nut onto threaded end of shifter, followed by a 1" wide, 12mm washer, followed by the mushroom can, another washer, and another nut.
3. Tighten your nuts.
4. Cram your can with heavy brass balls or whatever gives your stick some weight.
5. Slather the inside of your mushroom helmet with Mighty Putty, and jam it on the shifter.
6. Wait a day for the glue to set, and crustify.
7. Grab your new mushroom tip and ride. And be safe out there, kiddies.

Ahh, now I can go to sleep tonight.

Oy.

is it metal?

if it's plastic i'd be afraid of it breaking at an importune time and causing a misshift and collision.

if it's metal it's awesome!

if you dont have enough time to react and shift with just the lever instead of the knob then you shouldnt be driving in the first place.

when would missing a shift cause a collision? besides passing someone on a two lane road?

It's all steel, baby. The only thing is that the lid comes off a little too easy, but I'm going to tack weld or epoxy a nut to the underside of the cap so it screws on nice and secure, while retaining access to the forbidden compartment of mystery.

It's for smuggling Viagra from Canada.

No, that's the red one.

This one is good for another life. Fitting too, since it's on its second shortblock.
