|Ptl92600||The gated shifter grill is a solid CNC aluminum piece that weighs next to nothing; having removed all the reverse blocking mechanism on the shifter + gator... I'm confident I'm not losing adding any weight with this (not that I'm too much worried about it anyways, hint I still have carpets and a radio ;p).|

a little hard to tell from the angle of the photos, but I'm pretty sure the rose joint of the gear cable gets attached to the gear level with a bolt and a NYLOC NUT.
The nut has a nylon insert so it doesn't come loose. In your case, the nut looks like it's barely threaded. I think you should remove the excess 'spacers' as you call them and only use the supplied amount of 'washers'.
Then thread the bolt ALL THE WAY THROUGH the nyloc. There will be increased resistance when you have to overcome the nylon insert initially.

There does appear to be something wrong in your assembly.
Should only require 3 of 1/4" ID washers and 1 of 3/16" ID washer.
Plate on gear shift lever should be drilled out so that the 1/4" dia shoulder bolt can slide right through the plate.
If this has been done then check that the length of the shoulder bolt shoulder is 5/8".
Assembly is 1/4" washer under shoulder bolt head, then through the cable rod end, another 1/4" washer, then through the gear lever plate, another 1/4" washer and a 3/16" washer, then nyloc nut.
Installation instructions are in a PDF on this page:

you can order sleeves from mcmaster carr or amazon.
something like this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
you'll need to find the right size.

|LostPawn||Can you simply use shorter bolts? The hardware store may have metal tubes you can cut to length to use as a spacer instead of a few washers, I've been able to find these in metric sizes that fit very well over bolts almost like a sleeve.|

|kfennell||I drilled out the holes in the shifter and used larger hardware when I put mine together. There are still some spacers involved though.|

Help Ssc Cables
Hi guys, I’ve been working on upgrading to SSC shifter cables on my MY2007 Exige S, which turns out to be the most teadious job I’ve ever attempted... I finally manage to get the old cables out, 2 hours of bleeding knuckles to get the clips out😭
New cables in and I’m now facing a spacer problem.
The amount of room on the cable heads is ginormous leaving me with the solution of placing 6 spacers on each one to avoid any wiggling and that really doesn’t look any good.
Do any of you know what I’m doing wring here?
Thanks for the support!!
