You can make damn near anything into a shifter handle, but it is more involved than just tapping a hole in the new shifter. The hard part is building some sort of release for the shifter button you mentioned. One of the best things to do is find a used shifter assembly or take one out of the junk yard, and build your new shifter by reusing as many parts for that mechinism as you can, that way your not tearing apart your stock shifter and if it doesn't work you can still drive your car.I would love to put a beer tap in as my shifter, but I drive automatic and it has the button to change through the gears, is this possible to do?? If you have done this post pictures please!
*TOTAL THREAD HIJACK*Any more pictures? Looks pretty cool from what I see!
