Lotus titanium gear lever

I do titanium stuff for cars now and again, this is for a customer who is restoring a Lotus, there’s some nuts and bolts coming soon as well. In the mean time this is a titanium gear lever, copy of the original.

It was fun to bend, I had thoughts of contracting a fabricator, spring maker, pipe bender or anyone who had experience and skill in bending titanium, in the end i enlisted the help of a length of scaffolding pole and some jiggery pokery and did it myself, i’m pretty chuffed i have to say!
