As long as we are on the shifter subject, I used a ski pole for my shift knob.

Since I'm sure there's several subscribers Ti this thread..... I have a question, do any of you have any pedal cover or made pedals? I would like to find a pair to make mine a little wider without hitting the gas and brake at the same time. Please show pics and let me know what you did.

i drilled 2 holes on each side with a hole saw bit, then connected the holes with a cut off wheel. then i used a die grinder, and a cutting bit and tin snips to trim till they fit

Smart idea! I've always been confused on the best way to get a elongated hole made without butchering it. That's a great idea

Bed liner time.

I like the idea of doing the entire fender and front grill with the can bed liner. Is it durable?
