I'd really like to do some testing on this though before I start wrapping shift knobs for people. I'd hate to have it come apart for some reason, unless someone wants to be the guinea pig.

That looks great homer! What about stitching it down the seam? Or maybe the glue will be strong enough not to peel off over time.
