Got a working shifter setup installed in the car today. Since the front wheel drive setup had a shift rod running straight out the back it was not that hard to bend a section of pipe to go around the frame and run it forward instead. It works good the way it is. I need to run the brace rod back and mount it somewhere on the engine so the shifter moves back and forth with the engine like it does stock. I will do that after I mount the parking brake handle so I know where it needs to be to clear everything. But for now it shifts gears really well and is in a good position for the driver.
