Default Momo shift knob

This super light shift knob came with my car, and I'm guessing it used to be black leather on the white part. How can I fix it?

EDIT: Meant to put momo not cobb. I'm not that stupid, just a brain fart.

I know it's not great looking, and I have other knobs. I just thought it would be cool to restore and old one.

You get used to it after a while. Come down to OT sometime, the (piss-filled) water is fine.

Seriously though, there's a lot of good stuff on this site. Don't let some mild interweb ribbing push you away.

Buy a new one. You're talking about restitching leather onto a 14-15 year old shift knob. The cost to do that would far out weigh the cost of just buying a new or new/used knob.

Cover logo with masking tape.
Get fine sandpaper and sand metal cap and base.
Buff.
Buy some blue Alcantara.
Buy some pink string with needle.
Wrap bottom and top silver parts with masking tape.
Glue adhesive onto yellow portion of knob and Alcantara. Make sure both pieces dry slighty and both are tacky.
Wrap Alcantara around, trim excess from top and bottom of silver portions. For seam, overlap the two pieces slighty, and make fine cut with sharp knife.
At seam, assuming you aligned that in the middle, stitch two ends together pulling it together.
Take tape off, and screw onto shifter.

Experimentation done.

Omg that's a great idea, I love Alcantara. When you say two pieces, do you mean two halves of Alcantara that together form a full circle around the knob?
