Making some progress on the gear shift mounting, unfortunately my seats are still at the upholsters
so I can't put them in to check the size and height.

Made a small template of the shape I think will work and flow into a centre console.

Folded and rolled this piece the size to accommodate the gear shift.

Drilled and added nut certs.

Rod we won't be in Canada very long, a 7 day Inside Passage cruise and a few days to acclimatize, hopefully
I won't bump into their wonderful PM Justin Castro.

All for now.

Regards Newbee
