    looks really nice! :)
    Could you please describe the mecanism: what part is articulated or fixed?
    I would be great if you could draw a simple sketch!

    I ask my friend if I billo creates a 3D drawing and then share it here, because I'm not good with the drawings.:(

    I soldered my sequential shifter to the G27 paddles, too. It is a bit of work but it is absolutely worth it.

    Hello. I have a problem with the gear shift. I have a fly speed. I want to connect my Sequential gearbox to the steering wheel G 27. Do you think it will help me? Sorry for my English

    Yes you could, I remember seeing a document ages ago. I think it was a matter of opening the G27 shifter and re-soldering wires off 2 switch points and then solder them to your switches in your sequential shifter
