UN1 Rod Change Reverse Gear Lockout

Having had a look around without any luck, does anyone know where i can get a reverse gear lockout plate/mechanism. Reverse on mine is left and back. I have seen the Tornado cable mechanism, but would rather a selector guide plate incorporating a reverse gear latch of some form.

Any ideas?
Mick at Southern GT makes a cracking gear shift with lockout plate for the UN1 rod system, work of art.
i know. I have seen it :). But I have all the rod shift, etc. all I would like is the lockout plate to alleviate the problem.
~It is also "upside down".

Brian Magee made one on my car
Simple aluminium bent to follow sill shape
Hole cut in middle
And a lift over spring held gate

I’ll take pics
Following the above.... Has anyone made a lift-up type lock out function, similar to those used on lots of modern cars?
