Angle of your (shift pedal) dangle?

Anyone that could get a couple pics of their shift pedal/lever? Need to see how bent mine is and what it needs to look like when I bend it back! Thanks guys.

Bending stuff back makes stuff weak... Buy a used one that wasn't bent?

I wouldn't worry about a little tweaking - I've done it with my brake pedal a few times since it was bent when I bought it. A little MAPP gas and it was good to go. Plus we've always bent our brake/gas pedals in our race cars to allow for better heel towing.

and in this case it's a shift lever so it isn't going to see anything near the stress of failure.

Bending 919 rear brake levers and shift levers is a non issue.
Both are mild steel, and solid and thin fabrications of wrought materials.
Any bending I have done on them has never even needing any tweaking of welds, and the welds are the only things to be concerned about.
