    I couldn't find anything on the web on how I could mount my AC shifter that would work for me so what I ended up doing was makeing a cardboard cut out of an off-set triangle with a 1-3/4" half radias at the bottom to mount to my seat tube, I then took my template to a large steel house and for 5.00 per bracket they laser cut out my two pieces. I got rid of the plastic houseing that came with it and mounted it right where I wanted it, used 1/4" plate and it does not move AT ALL, something I was worried about because it was so tall and skinny at the bottom, but turned out perfect, when in 1st/2nd the shifter is straight up and in perfect reach for me. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Looks good.

    You need to add another shifter closer to the passenger seat. If someone asks what it is tell them it's the emergency eject lever for the passenger seat. That'll keep 'em on their best behavior. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    yeah there aren't enough levers, needs ox lockers, some manual line locks, a fuel shutoff or two, battery disconnect in cab, hmmmm anything else? rear steer lever maybe?

    Nice mounting setup by the way.

    Wow, sweet mount. I love that! Looks much sweeter than my elevated platform... <sniff>

    What's going on here, is there some weird psychic connection here? You and I are going to wind up with the same rig as soon as you ditch all that sheet metal. My Art Carr is scheduled for delivery today! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    PRPs (almost the same color), Art Carr, very similar cages, very similar drive train, identical axles, your recent comments about loosing the sheet metal and larger tires... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I guess good parts is good parts...

    so did you remove the steering column shifter and if so how does that work? I suppose you'd have to remove it. Just not sure how all that works.

    Well, that aint saying much, but I'll give that to ya... /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    As for how it works. Yes, it replaces the one on the column. Minimally, you can just remove the linkage from the lower column down to the trans and knock the roll pin out of the shifter handle to get it off the column and out of the way. If the little stub thing left on the column bothers you enough, you can swap the collar (or the complete column) using a donor from round column car with factory floor shift, or a manual trans truck.

    I used a tilt column from a 4sp truck. Otherwise you could cut and fill where the lever went.
