to give somewhat a better idea of what i had in mind: the shifter i want a thin hollow tube making it light and on the top mount the oem shift knob. since the tube is hollow run the oem wires down and connect it under the shift boot. perfect oem like install, just have to worry about height. to get the diameter of the tube just measure your stock knob. too big a tube the boot won't fit and too small will leave spacing in the hole.
