    Hey, whatever works, works, right?:thumbs
    Mind you, building a H-Pattern shifter from scratch might take a bit more than building a sequential.

    Thank you @leaedman very much for sharing! Very effective design, will build my sequential based on your design.

    About H-shifter building, I build mine based on very simple design, it works well and feels good compared to how simple and cheap it was to build. I have series of pics of building it in the page 7 of my "Crate" Racing cockpit thread, but maybe I should separate that part to be more accessible in DIY peripherals.

    Thank you everyone, I am pleased that you enjoyed my project :blush
    I removed the shifter in order to make 2 new detailed images :thumbs

    (Merci tout le monde, je suis heureux de savoir que mon projet vous a plu.
    J'ai démonté le shifter pour pouvoir prendre 2 nouvelles images détaillées.)
