Now that I have the 5 speed in I removed the shifter stub off the column. Came out real nice. I cut off the stub, plugged it with 1/2" dowell plug, then used some JB weld to smooth it all out. Little spot putty and done. Duplicor had the perfect match and done.

Looks great. Where did you get the 1/2-inch dowel?

Just picked up a dowell rod at a home depot. Only needed an inch of so now its a play stick for my son. kids can be very creative... Plugged the hole used some gorilla glue to seal it . JB weld to seal the side, then a little spot putty to clean it up. Duplicolr to match and done.
