The print from yesterday was in rubber because my first solid print failed when it wouldn't release from the print bed. 

Did a solid print again, but raised off the bed, and it came out awesome!!  

This was done on a SLA printer. A Formlabs Form2 in Grey Pro Resin.

I don't know, it looks pretty heavy compared to the stock plastic one ;)

We’re through our third cartridge at work, and the Form2 needs less than a tenth of the maintenance that our single or dual extruder printers get. Nice emblem!

They're slow and annoying to deal with for any warranty issues. If you don't have a service plan.. buy one.. 

otherwise... solid product.. the different materials are very cool and useful..

Ahh, that car. His shop is just a few blocks away from me in Kitchener, in fact I've had my car oil sprayed there in the past. That's awesome it is going in this car.

And special thanks to spacecadet for his on point social media game. I've been talking about getting one of these since early on in the project but it was fairly low on the priority list. This popped up for a VERY attractive price and he pounced on it.

I suspect that may be one of the fastest non sequential shifters anywhere in the country. Awesome to see it living on in your car!

On the one hand, the shifter has gone very fast. On the other hand, it's wiggled the gears of a lot of broken transmissions. laugh

Looks like I gained all of my glove compartment gutting weight back. sad I think it will be worth it. 

For those building a super light car though, the stock shifter is clearly the way to go.

For those building a super light car though, a custom carbon fiber version of the new shifter is clearly the way to go. 

FTFY

The shifter was missing a bolt and spacer to attach one of the cable ends. Not sure if it fell out of the box or what, not a big deal. I have a message out to K-tuned to see if I can buy that small piece, but in the mean time, we've got a One Lap to do. 

I bought a bolt, nyloc nut, a few washers and a spacer that I had to resize with my handy dandy drill/lathe and some files and sandpaper. 

The new bushing fits in the end of the cable like so. 

And the whole thing fits onto the shifter like this. 

There is a bunch of potential adjustments on the shifter and a few pieces that may be a smidge warn after their previous life, but it bolted right in like stock. Even though I didn't clean it up, it's still pretty. 

It shifts well. The change isn't huge but I didn't expect it to be. The shifts are shorter than before and the knob is an inch or two higher, and those are probably the biggest changes. It doesn't shift as well as the ND, but it's a whole hell of a lot better than it was when I got the car. Sleepyhead and spacecadet can give their opinions in another week.
