Michael, I'm in exactly the same boat. Received the stick months ago, just tried to fit the Infinity grip this week. With the China hat trim switch on top of the grip just clearing the bottom of the instrument panel, the bottom of the stick grip is on the curved portion of the bend and will not reassemble.
I've enlarged the grip bushings' clearance holes in the stick to 0.500" in hopes it would relieve the fit enough to get the two halves together but no soap. The bend in the stick is definitely interfering with the bottom of the grip. The real solution seems to be to move the grip upward but that's not practical at this point (stick is cut, drilled, and slotted) and then it wouldn't clear the bottom of the panel anyway.
Have you solved your fit problem and if so, what did you do. Thought I'd ask before I perform Dremel surgery on the inside of the grip :-(
