Got a WRITE up for the shifter barrel? Lost wax is really interesting by the way. But yeah that shifter would be cool to do.

EDIT: I must've been tired when I typed this.

Awesome man! I already have the 7ball lol I'm gonna try this out thanks for the info!

Grenade shifter

Needed :

Grenade...
Ar-15 shell
5/8 drill bit
3/8 drill bit

My grenade already had a hole in the bottom so I opened it up with the 5/8 bit, this should slide into the shifter stick now.
The grenade has a "Handel/top" I unscrewed this from the body then used the 3/8 bit to drill from the bottom all the way through this creates a hole for the shell

Next the little white piece in the Handel should have a node on the top, this is what I shoved the shell onto.
Put it together and that's it.
A set screw would be recommended to hold it to the Handel secure

Judging by this picture it sure looks like you do. you probally put this filter on expecting massive power.......and even the small chance you have at minimal and i mean minimal (non exsistant) increases of power and fuel milage are totally killed my your poorly maintainted filter, i can only imagine how you neglect other parts of your rig.
