Home made gear stick.

Because of the electric revers lock out I welded a thin pipe along the edge of the stick, to route the wire thru.

















Updates will come.

Cool job, what kind of wood? Are you going to put a faux "edge" on it?

The one above reminds me a little of the Hurst 'pistol grip'? I think it was made w/about a 45 forward cant to it, though.

OT- I have some knuckles that I had thought about making into a shifter, but they're not particularly comfortable to use as a shifter, so I ditched the idea.

Was the Mopar 'slap stick' auto shifter different from a pistol grip? A friend in FL had one years ago but I cannot recall what it was like.

The wood is brich from my area. I make my own firewood every year and the stick on the photo was taken aside 5-6 years ago, because I saw the beatiful "flame brich" (as we call it here) pattern in the wood.

I know the top of the Mopar pistol grips are a bit forward pointing, but my gear stick will be a bit long, so bending it forward wouldn't have made for a very comfortable grip.

what kinda finish you gonna throw on it? I think it would look even sharper with a blonde finish coat. But possibly make it a lil less uncomfortable? It looks beuatiful, thats wood craftmanship at its best

Same color as on the steering wheel I made earlier:



When it's dry I will cover it with epoxy to get a durable and shiny finish.

That is some BE-UUUUU-TEEE-FUL fab work. So nice to see something made instead of bought.
