Default Paddle Shifter Swap from Rumion?

This one might be kinda far out... but could it be possible? If you already have the automatic, i think it might work, imo... but it might not because the Rumion is RHD...
so could it be possible with a swap or custom fab?

It would seem like it might possibly, but I honestly have no idea how the mechanics behind it work. Although if someone somehow made a setup up to covert us xb guys over to I'd deffinatly be in line to purchase it. If its just a switch that should be cake right?

Well that answers that. Now does anybody have hook ups that can tell us how much the optional paddle shifter is on the rumion? Paddle shifters would be so rad.

If you get the parts, it shouldn't be too hard. I assume that when you move the lever up/down on the shifter, its completing a circuit momentarily. If this is truly how it works, then all you need to do is to find the points that need to be connected, and wire into that. I could be way off though. Best bet is for someone to get a parts diag. of the shifter unit, or even better, a shifter unit from a wrecked xB, and break it down.
