Customized my shifter Knob, opinions?
 
Ok I got tired of the chrome look of the stock shifter knob. The leather had a small tear but with some work I got it mended. I decided to try painting the chrome black and then hit the indents on the shifter with matching mango tango color. I know that the orange is not squared perfect but its in there now.

GO ahead lets see what you think?? I am not sure what I feel yet?http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n...ps6cac74a2.jpg

Should of left it alone. May be better with clean lines. But they aren't.

I like it. Its different.

It looks kind of sloppy, not really liking it.

Joe30326 09-25-2013 08:52 PM

It's a neat idea I like the concept

Well I just got back in from hitting it with solid black. The lines from the orange just didn't look good for me. It is all black textured now.

The knobs on the base Sport's are all black, just in case the painted finish doesn't hold up. I'm with you that the fake chrome looks goofy.

Auto trams knob too? Everyone I keep looking in is chrome, but a black one would be nice.

It almost looks like you used nail polish or something :confused:

Irobike 09-26-2013 06:25 PM

How do you like it

traitor08 09-26-2013 09:17 PM

If i pistol grip anything, it will be a 60's muscle car, they just beg to be on a 4sp. What is it doing kn an auto? I do like the 4x4 shifter though.

And on a second note.

I have a base model sport, only options were ac, and 3.73 ratio with my 6sp. Shifters are chrome.

I got it for $54.99, then received an email this morning saying it was back ordered, so I called to find out how long & the lady said they just mailed mine out to me this morning and has no idea why I got an email saying backorder. Then she proceeded to apologize for the issue and refunded me my money "in case" the shifter does not arrive. Funny thing is I checked the tracing # and it will be delivered by Tuesday next week:beerdrinking:
