The moment I saw the linkage on the trans I bought my mind went to work.
So far I came up with an aluminum bushings in shop class.

I'm also looking at cutting the shifter and messing with the ratios for a shorter shift. When I looked at short shifted online I notice they just moved the bar farther up the shift stick. A lot actually. About an inch. So I'm thinking ill cut an inch out of the top on the and cut and put the inch long piece on the bottom section.

But does anyone have any measurement of a real short shifter? Just to be sure?

Here you can see. On the top is the bushing I made.
and the two golf tees are what I would cut. Then weld back together. And take and put that 1 inch piece where I have that single tee. To lengthen that.

This should reduce the shift throw while maintaining stock look and height. Thought I may put a slight bend in the shifter toward the driver. Like 10-20 degress
