      you coudl make the whole thing out of aluminum, and the base be 1/4in plate. But if i were to keep it steel, i just would use thicker material

      Why would you make it steel. Heavy!

      The base on my shifter is going to be aluminum plate. What do you guys want me to do for the base for your cars though? suggestions?

      Aluminum or stainless plate. Just so long as its tig welded to produce a nice finish and strong weld. The welds just look a little boogered up on the ones above. I'm just used to seeing perfect tig welds now.

      Ok, we'll see what i'm going to do. I just got a new mig, tig, and plasma cutter so everything should go smoothly. I friend of mine is going to weld the bases together though as he's a pro. I'm still learning

      ne one get there hands on some dimensions?

    8. 02-13-2005 09:52 AM #33
      if any of you, have made one already i'll buy it.
      i'm strongly interested in this project.
      i was trying to buy one from bildon but all they have are nice pictures on the web.

    9. 02-13-2005 12:42 PM #34
      Okay, here we go...
      I built the base for this one. Had a friend weld it.


      It looks real simple, but it probably took a week to get everything right. The cable stays are probably the hardest part, especially if you build a tall base like I did. This was in a Mk4, BTW.

      more pics r great i love see'n them but does neone have some numbers, measurements or maybe some blueprints

    11. 02-13-2005 10:39 PM #36
      What about making one without the base. That way if someone like myself can handle the base it would save on time and materials and lower final price. I would be up for that.

      If you don't want a base it just makes it easier for me I'll lower the price slightly if you don't want the base. Pictures in 2 weeks! started work today.

      That shifter looks so similar to those of a rally car. Is the ease of shifting anything like what is seen on the tele?
      With something like that are you just bliping it to and fro. Or, is the amount of travel minimal between stock?

      its all up to you, if you want it shorter you can have it shorter. If you want closer to stock you can have that too. The shifter that i'm making will have a slightly shorter throw then stock ar the longest throw setting.

      I'm looking forward to the next update [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Are you still going to release dimensions of the shifter? I hope so!

      I'm a nice guy, so for the guys that have the ability to make their own shifter i will release the dimensions and possibly even a CAD file too. Just as long as my file isn't used to sell more of the shifters

      I understand your concern. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Yeah, now that I see it; if I were you I wouldn't release the CAD file for at least a few months... or sell it for a reasonable amount since you worked on it.

      releasing the CAD files would be amazing...
      not that i plan on building one, my short shift is enough for me, but it's nice to have CAD goodies... and access to NC equipment

      Never got a chance to drive a car with one of these,...any critics out there?

      My kit is pretty damn sweet. Lots of R&D because nothing out there exists like it. Ill be installing one in my 020 rocco in a few weeks. Got it worked out for the rabbit already.

      Great diagram!! 1.BillyT-did you have problems with the selector arm/cable hitting your seat bolster? I have been attempting to find the best way to install mine, and you're right-it's not easy! Mine is a mk2 and my seat bolster is in the way. Great pics! I think I saw your old posts regarding your install. I think if my stock tower was about 1/2" taller it would work fine, what did you find?

    25. 02-21-2005 02:15 AM #50
      Yup, the stock tower is too short. The bottom of the lever, where the cable attaches hits the center tunnel. But when you make the tower taller, it makes it harder to have a solid cable stay for that main cable. I ended up making a bracket that was out of 1/2 aluminum with set screws to hold thew cable in it. That bracket will take all of the abuse from shifting, so it needs to be strong. And since mine was so tall, I had to be that much stronger.
      No problems with the that arm hitting the seat bolster, though. MK4 is a bit wider than the MK2, and since mine was so much taller, that might be why.
      I was a man... I was a good man... Selling insurance...
