I really don`t know what your problem is. What`s wrong with Roth Performance shifters - Best shifter ever !

Kacyc3, I have the mega in my Fbody camaro and have used the mega shifters in other cars also, they r great but the corvette console is like new so I don't want to cut it up n modify.
Ive checked out the b&m pro stick dimensions and I think I can get it to fit, I can also get several different types of handle to suit, the one I like is a classy billet style. I'll keep a look out for your post when you customize your console. Cheers.

LOL...I never said I didn't like Roth. Just not in this car style.
Rat rods are bad ass!

Thumbs up!

Thanks for that, I've saved the images for reference.

Was at Rocket open day yesterday (be like summit open day)
And think I have changed my mind to the b&m Magnum grip pro bandit - bit more expensive may have to save a bit longer but had a feel of it in a rod and feels good.

The mounting mechanism looks smaller than the pro stick too, either way ime changing the shifter but I might have to buy or make a boot to finish off.

Ime thinking it's going to be a project for the new year, when I do install I will post the photos and pro's n con's for others.

In the meantime I have lots of those annoying little things to sort out for the nationals in early January, so between now and then I have about zero spare time.

Simple square stock from Home Depot and some bolts. Little trimming on the metal plate as well.

Exclamation mini-hijack - but maybe relevant

tektrans -
Care to share the purpose of the 3 toggle switches and 2 lights?
Converter Lock Up? Fuel Pump? Radiator fan(s)?
How well do those lights "show" in daylight in that position?

Sure np Jim, those switches aren't operational just yet-only mounted unwired on that plate. They will be for nitrous arming switch, bottle heater and manual fan switch for cooling between rounds when I get her all together.
I probably will switch those to the aircraft style one's with the flip up covers.
I'm actually not real happy with the way the one's I have in there look to be honest and I don't know how well they light up cause they aren't wired yet-sorry.

The billet handle is a nice looking piece.
