Default Alcantara wrapped shift knob

Like the feel of a heavy stainless steel shift knob but hate getting burned in the summer and the chilly feel during winter? Try wrapping it in Alcantara or some other material of your choice:


It feels fantastic to use, much better than polymer or plain metal knobs.

I printed the template here to scale for my Blox knob that I got off NASIOC:
http://jerrydmills.deviantart.com/ar...rush-189956895

The circumference of your knob = length of fabric template + width of template, use that formula to print to size.

I'll grab a daylight pic for you guys tomorrow.

I did all of the work with the exception of the handbrake/shifter boot. Those were made by a friend.

Thank you! I'm redoing it in black threads right now to better match my interior. Simply follow the template in the link I provided, that should have all the info you'll need
