^ Yes -- very nice. Make them out of leather, offer various colors of stitching, and start selling them on here.

got a better pic today, my digital camera is on its last leg of the run...doesn't focus anymore :P

anyway, i ended up cutting the stock shifter down an incha and a quarter...and made the boot fit in a bit better. i think it turned out really great:D

Billet Aluminum, turned it on a lathe and then used a cnc to engrave the shift pattern into it.

If you really want it, I can send it to you.

@Armstrong57: Whats up with the shoelace?

Did your boot keep falling down?

If it did, pull the boot down a little and use some black electrical tape and tape it around the actual shift stick about a CM below the knob..(You may have to use a good amount) and pull the boot over top of it..

Or you can get a rubber washer and put it on your stick to hold up the boot.

Im from ontario too, all that stuff in your car looks familiar, and i've owned at one point even the biohazard airfreshner :lol: someone is familiar with canadian tire as well

eh, did you find it a pain putting on your pedals, my accelerater came off while i was driving the screw came loose, i still havent put it back on :lol:



Trust me pull the wheel cover off, its soo much more comfortable and easier to drive without it

About the "shoelace" : that's a lace that is part of the boot to keep it tight at the top.

No problems with the pedals so far, they've been on a couple months without any issues.

You should just run a twistie-tie through there and remove the shoe-lace and tighten it up then cut off the extra piece of tie on the end..

Yep.. I like it too..

The only thing I dislike about the whole thing is that I had to use electrical tape and wrap it around the stick to hold up the boot..
