B&M quick silver shifter

I'm running the B&M shifter which sits on my floor board. The shifter arm is pretty short causing me to bend over to shift the shifter. I was wondering if they sell longer arms to replace the B&M shifter or will the Hurst shifter arms (much longer) fit on the B&M shifters.

The B&M Quick Silver is basically a copy of the Hurst Pro-Matic II shifter.
I don't think the B&M Auto shifter lever is removable like the levers on Manual shifters are.

Hurst makes a Car and Truck version of the Promatic II shifter.
Car shifter is 11.50" total height.
Truck shifter is 15.50" total height.

Would 4" taller make enough difference?

The other option is to build a base underneath the shifter to raise it up; like the B&M 'Mega Shifter' for trucks. Comes with a plastic base you trim to fit the hump and get the height up more. If the handle (knob) comes off, I wonder if you could make an extension to find the length that works best for you.

Not all the M/T levers come off either; the 55-57 bench seat Hursts are welded to the mechanism as the lever starts parallel to the floor and bends around the seat.

Guys have modified factory shifters before, but I don't do Autos. I wonder if you can get a junk B/M and fiddle with it.

I know Lokar made a sleeve/adapter to put your own knob on the lokar unit so you could avoid the pushbutton mushroom
