Relocation of paddle shifter to handle

Has anyone made a DIY for making a way to shift on the stick rather than with paddles on the automatic trans.


(I really hope someone doesn't reply with by a manual Camaro)

I do have the pistolgrip tapshifters but if you're looking for a ball shifter with tapshift and have a little patience I am working on something you may really ,really like.

I have been working on an auto ball shifter and have the mechanical portion pretty far along, the biggest problem with other designs is the switches/electronics, I have not been able to come up with anything suitable other than the OEM switches, I am currently designing my own and am very close to a prototype. If all works right I will have the ball shifter with tapshift and have been playing with a t-handle as well. The attached photo is the ball shifter, it's still not finished as the electrics need to be completed first. Won't be to long as it is my #1 project as of now.

I have mixed feeling about it. I wish I didn't like how the stock one looked like so much.
