Thats good!
One remark : imho, an important part of the shifter is the cover bracket
Here is a used one



And a NOS one:


If you want the real "feeling" of the shifter , you should go for the NOS one. 22usd + shipping on arcadefixit, not cheap but worth it!

Finally got a stick and plate sorted.

When I bought the game it had a bodged turbo outrun stick in. I bought a good condition top plate to put on it but the turbo stick was too thick.

I then bought a rough gearstick mech with a rusty top plate with the intention of swapping in the nice top plate. Except it turns out the early version of the stick I had doesn't have a roll pin and isn't removable!

So another £30 later I get ANOTHER stick and plate. It's all fit together now and looking much better.

I'll be selling on the spares to recoup some money back if anyone needs a nice top plate

Out of interest did you have to bend the plate to remove
The rod that holds the pedals. I can’t see how to dismantle the deluxe ones bit it looks similar to yours.

I was tempted to buff the pedals but the sandblasted metal looks ok.

As I said at the start, this isn't going to be a NIB restore, just a steady tart up.

Only things left to do are apply new sideart when Muddy makes it, and swap monitors with a different cab. (This one has altered beast burn in)

£30 to sandblast the pedals and powder coat the front plate.

Let's hope this goes back together as easily as it comes apart!

Think I'm just going to sand blast the pedals and give them a polish
