I was poking around a little and I came up with an idea. The shifter sits on the bend of the bar which is causing the height issue. On either end. If I carve away a little from the one side, it should, in theory, slide down between the tubes and let the ends sit over the tubes. As long as I leave the mounting holes alone for the console, the console will just fall farther over the tubes, and won’t affect the operation. The question becomes how do I cut it. I think a grinding wheel will take too long.
