Default Thanks John! M47 Shifter Knob (56k... people still use 56k?)

John (AKA The Aspirator) just spent a good amount of time customizing a custom shifter knob for my short-throw shifter (I ended up getting the last one/one of the last ones he ever made, which kind of makes it special in its own way too). Looks pretty good if you ask me! Although I think they should call him The Aspergerator after the amount of diligence and time spent making such a small inanimate part. I kid.

I can't wait until it arrives!







Will post pics when it arrives and is installed.

Yep, I put a sharpie in my CNC mill and drew the pattern that way, and I drew it halfway through the anodizing process so the shift pattern is as permanent as the orange color.

Post pics of it installed! Glad you like it.

It should be noted that Tamnakz's knob is my normal threaded knob and button that comes on my ultimate shifter, but it's been modified to fit it onto a stock M46 shifter. Pics of it installed!??

The car:



Next bit of money I have is removing the blacked out wheels the previous owner "coolified" his car with.







Oh and obligatory rainbow spaghetti (K-Jet Turbo to LH2.4 B230FT swap WIP)
