I didn't think that even modifying the remote would work.  It would still
be too far back, not to mention the height.  I was thinking about
eleminating the remote and mounting the shifter directly to the opening on
the trans where the remote attaches.  I still have to get under the car and
do some measuring to see if that would be close.

It would be good if some BMC car used the 4 synchro trans with a direct
shifter.  That would keep me from having to make something.
