prototype with plastic…

A little more progress on a shifter option. I am looking at a couple different options but right now I am planning on making a new carrier that would mount directly to the trans. It would use the camaro shifter or an aftermarket short shifter.

Drew up a test in Alibre (3d Cad) and printed out a test in ABS Plastic.

On the printer.

You can see there is a little ledge down in there.

The camaro shifter uses a plastic bushing similar to how BMW does.

It uses a little locking plate to hold it in.

Up in the car…

The idea right now is to make the piece I made out of plastic out of metal. Then make some supports from the carrier ring down to the mounts on the trans.
Then also make a new selector rod that will go between the shifter and trans.
