What is the downside to making a “ dogleg” ( if you can even call it that) that will extend the shifter handle forward?
My thinking is that for every inch you move this thing forward, however much the shifter ball height would change through normal shifting, will change exponentially.
Unlike any other console, I‘ll have room to extend the shift arm forward under the steel mesh. ( provided that shifter itself doesn’t extend too high past floor height.)
I’m thinking that that shifter is gonna be right where the rear cup holder is right now, or somewhere in between the front and rear cupholder at best. ( way too far back). So, if I make a extension that moves the shifter forward and penetrate the mesh say...between the rear of the existing shifter, and the front of the first cup holder, it should be right where I’d want it. of course, i’ll have to replace the existing mesh with a new piece, and move the cup holders forward ( Where they should be in the first place).
