    Did you have some other photos of the the shifter, if its no troble. I love the fact that you moved it to the dash. You certainly need all the room possible in a COE.

    GREAT build by the way.

    Cool! That is a big help!!!!

    I would like to see more, I will likely be using an 05 GMC box van as my donor chassis.

    Thanks for all your time and help!

    Yeah, he's had it for a year already, and he's taken it on some serious road-trips too.

    He can be found hauling his Falcon racecar with it...and it's still got all my graphics and logo's on it too!

    You had the license plate in the rear pan. Where will it mount now?
     
  23. Will just mount it somewhere in the back under the tail lights

  24. Cool Build. I have gotten a lot of great ideas for my build and I will steal them shamelessly.

    ditto
     
  26. Thanks for the shifter picks. Does the bell crank piece normally mount under the dash in the Sivlerado or under the column covers? Looks like a slick operation for sure. The only other option I was thinking about was a push button like the old Dodges use to have but have not been able to find one on the market. Keep up the good work, it looks great.
