started off with a 1/2" piece of round stock,
a 5/16" bung & a pre made plate from teach.
i drilled the bung out to fit the 1/2" rod
then plug welded the rod inside the bung.
then i bent the rod so it will miss the coil.
& plug welded the rod/bung to the plate.
then i threaded the 1/2" rod end to 1/2-20.
added the shift knob & locking nut.
i will chrome it & add a hippy killer grip.
