Rivendell Silver Shifters - 80's Schwinn DT Shifters

Has anyone mounted the Rivendell Silver Shifters on one of these contoured 80s shifter bosses? Would I just leave the grey plastic coutoured bit on the stud, then mount the Silver Shifters in place of my broken lever?

I have a broken 7sp shimano indexing lever I'm replacing temporarily as a stop gap before I go full restomod on my Super Sport. I wanted to get a versatile set of friction only shifters I could use in other builds, and these seem to have good reviews.

Picture (not mine) for reference.

The grey plastic is part of the Shimano shifter. Take it off. Standard boss should be underneath.
