Default Stuttgart and Maranello, eat your heart out

Well, kinda, sorta..... so a small project that started last night culminated in a hand-threaded, hand-sewn shift boot for my STi. Yeah, I guess I could have spent the bucks and just bought one from a vendor or something, but it's the satisfaction of the mighty DIY!






...and the finished product

Looking good man. I like the leather boot more than alcantara. You know the next step. Make 50 more, get a vendor account, profit.

^ Ha! that's cool, though... sewing is definitely not my forte... wait a minute, maybe that's a compliment.

Nothing better than DIY if you can actually do it and have results that look FACTORY (stuttgart and maranello handmade factory quality at that...). CLEAN. Great job
