    2 very tiny black screws top and bottom solves it. Yeah, yeah, I'm "hacking" again.

    No, we do not have plans to make the metal gated shifter again. The cost us too much to make, and because of the differences in shift linkage adjustments in every car, they didn't work for everyone. Josh, I look forward to seeing the shift plate you come up with, sounds interesting!

    hi im a customer for shift gate

We have an insert that extends slightly past the shift gate edge so that when you move the shifter it runs against the plastic instead of the shift gate. These will be released in January after a bit of testing. I will have the first prototypes from stainless works in December.

    Rick,

    Just checked out the DMOCO Auto Shifter Emblem $17.95 and when I select 2, the shipping doubles (from $8 to $16)! Is that correct? Surely 2 emblems in the same packet would not cost twice as much to ship?

    Hi Jeff,
    Thanks for your order. So far we haven't figured out a way to put a sleeve or protect the shifter shaft. We are open to any ideas on how to improve this.


    Thanks,

    Thanks for pointing this out. I just corrected shipping costs, including for international. It should be same cost for 1 or 2 emblems.



    Thanks,

    Be good if we could use something like shrink tubing for electrical wires. If there was one wide enough we could slip over the stick then shrink.
