Gearbox linkage rubber woes + solution

So, mercedes doesn't have the rubber bits for the gearbox linkages anymore.

I decided to make my own...

Have them machined with a CNC lathe by the 100's and sell them on Fleabay...

A friend of mine sent a drawing to ali-baba and had items made for pennies, in good quality.

Good idea that could make you some money.
