Possible or no go?

Halfords has some ridiculous prices on Shimano Ultegra shifters.

Possible by re-spacing the cassette for 9sp using 8sp spacers and then using the derailleur's limit
screw to disable shifter's 1st position. Existing 8sp chain will be fine.

Shimano 9sp cassettes fit 8sp hubs so might as well convert straight to 9sp if/when can afford
cassette & chain. Existing derailleurs and chainrings should be ok.
