Install the DDM short throw shifter and you would have to ask a machine shop to cut an aluminium plate for you with the shift pattern. The short throw would help with the gate channels not needing to be so long thus allowing for your plate to be strong enough to not crack.

Tracing the actual shift pattern and travel would need some creativity. I think once achieved properly it would look great.

Oh, you'd also need a shift adapter that would be a thin stick from the connection to the lower shift lever at the gearbox all the way up top to the knob. Make the knob as heavy as possible to account for the lighter shift lever (the stock lever is thick and heavy).

FWIW, I think a case could be made for people who drive an auto but want it to look like a manual.
You reminded me of Alfa Romeo's Selespeed shifter.

Or Alfa's Q System shifter.

Light Motor vehicle Gear shift Automotive design Steering wheel



If the Solstice really doesn't have q mechanical linkage between the automatic shifter and the gearbox, a gated shifter with a pattern similar to the Alfa's could be made. But it would be a whole lot of custom work.
