Subject:      Making a Vanagon Short Shift Adapter
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

Hi All,

I'm not sure if this has been tried before. I've been looking at the short shift kit advertised on the Volkscafe home page. has an enlargement. I'm thinking of making a shim piece using the same technique that the chap here used to fix a saggy butt, With a a polyethylene chopping board in theory I could make something fairly tall so that it would be possible to have a longer gear stick and a shorter shift. I hope to give it a try in a couple of weeks for the sake of the experiment if nothing else. If anyone else has tried something similar I'd value hearing about their experience.
