Custom cable shifters?

A friend of mine is working on a special project and is gonna need some custon length cable shifters made up. Probably in the 15' range. I tried doing some searching but couldnt really find companies that build custom length shifters. I was wandering is there a way to make them yourself or anyone know of a company that makes custom shifters?

The guy owns a local 4x4 shop in town and they had a customer bring a truck up there that is needing some custom work done. Basically the guy built a rack on top of this '01 chevy and he is wanting to be able to drive this thing down the street and then climb up top and be able to drive this thing around the deer lease. It has to be completely functional from in the driver seat and from the rack on top of the truck. So he is thinking about using cable shifters to operate the brakes and shift the tranny.

You can get custom cables at San Antonio Brake and Clutch, but it is kinda far from you. Also, may be a hassle trying to explain the ends over the phone.

I don't know anything about this place, but I bookmarked the site several years ago just because of the incredible array of cable parts they have on the site. Looks like you could build nearly anything using the stuff they sell.
