Re: [DML] Electric DeLorean Update: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I have had my gearshift break off as well in the exact same spot. I was 
accellerating on the highway and shifted into fourth when the lever suddenly 
just laid flat on the console. Kind of shocking really. Fortunately I could 
drive and stop at a parking lot, place the lever back in the hole, and only 
use forward gears home.

I had it welded together but this didn't last long. It was too loose after 
welding and the roll pin for reverse would eventually work it's way out, 
hindering my shifting intentions. I suppose it can be repaired but just make 
sure you weld it so that roll pin cannot move on it's own. I ended up buying 
a used shifter on ebay.
