I've heard anyone with a CAD file can have parts printed for nominal cost. Perhaps the vendors can be found online.

Is ABS itself not heat tolerant enough for a throttle body spacer? I bought a 3D printer not too long ago and have been wondering about things like this. Printing a mold to cast urethane parts in sounds like it would be perfect for making bushings.

Nope, ABS starts to soften around 176F according to wikipedia.

Lots of good ideas.

There would be a passage in the part along the shifter shaft to allow wires to run down along side it.

Ooooh. You could sell those shift handles- a "universal fit" would make mounting it the modder's job.

I would def buy one of these from you! I'd want a flush-mounted red momentary button to fit nice and snug on it, like I used for my MPGuino buttons.
