How about shipping it to a place that has a good reputation, possibly used by someone else? A good shop will not mind doing something like this for you. Maybe ship it to a shop in Baton Rouge?

Dave
that came out really good.:cool: did that mount right on without any problems?
I had to make a couple of adjustments with a drill,

1. drill the shifter shaft about 1" deeper in the Handle. so it would sit closer to the console plate.

2. I drilled a small set screw hole in the front of the bottom finger slot and tapped it. Now it is set firm using a set screw that you really cannot see unless you want to look for it.

Looks good! Ran the same handle, then got the black Hurst handle for Macaro/Rustangs cut inch off shaft and died threads, but was between sizes, soo drilled thru adapters and locknut, and used a rolled pin to secure to shaft. Looks same but Hurst is etched after powdercoating, sorry no pics, need to get some. Also took 1/4" pinstrip tape, and went around the top, center of the chrome bezel, that thing can sure reflect the sun, straight into ur eyes, at the worst dang times!
