This is a picture of the finished install, the boot was left off for picture clarification.

In a continuing effort to bring great ideas to everyone, we would like to show you how you can make your own twin stick shifter for your D300 for little or no cost. This setup will allow you to create a nearly stock looking installation but having the advantage of a twin shifter. (Please disregard the rough look of the shifter shown here. The shift boot was removed to show the setup and parts more clearly. Installation of the boot makes for a nice clean look.)

Here are the items you will need:
1) 2 Stock D300 shifters (you probably already have one. Now go find your buddy who spent over $100 on his Currie setup and get his other stock shifter for free!)
2) 2 shifter plates. See below for detail drawings of shifter plates in case you want to make your own.
3) Aluminum or plastic spacer. See detail layout below for approximate size.
4) 2 bolts of size 1/4" diameter x 3/4" long (grade 5 or 8)
5) 2 nuts of size 1/4" to go on the bolts in item 4.
6) Remainder of stock D300 shifter items like shifter knob, cotter pin, etc.

You will also need a torch to heat and bend the shifters so that the knobs do not interfere with one another. You will also need to figure out a twin stick shifter boot. We recommend the Currie version for about $30. But this is totally up to you.
Take a look at the following items. It should explain how it all goes together as well as detailed drawings of the shifter plates. If you are unable to make your own shifter plates, we can supply these for approximately $15.00 each. This price is subject to change without notice due to unknown quantities that will be ordered.

The sleeves are available at Lowe's.

"These are at Lowes, brand is 'Hillman', first is 5/8 x 7/8 x 1.5"...part numbers on the bag are 136459, 880422 and the sku # is 008236708141. The second is 5/8 x 7/8 x 1"...part #s are 136442, 880420 and sku # is 008236708127. Look back at the pictures to see how they were cut and slotted them to fit the plates. After welding, you have to grind the side off of the inside plate for clearance."
