DIY shifter knobs (post up pictures)

Post pictures of your works of shifter art, and the glorious disasters of others--ridiculous or cool, practical or foolish. Readymades. Modified purchases. But no unmodified purchased custom shifters.

I'll start (not mine):

Why yes, yes you do. Doesn't a person always say yes to hot rods and beer taps?

No thread of custom DIY shift knobs is complete without this classic!

Install link is below, this is still the coolest mod I've done on any car in my eco fleet

You could acetone vapor polish that to make it all shiny if you desire.

I thought about it but I was afraid to mess with it since it had some pretty tight tolerance 3d printed buttons and it was already painted. I ended up leaving it like that the whole time I had the car, and as a plus it was real easy to grip

I see your one, classic, "high-tech" EM knob and raise you two of my ratty amature old school POS knobs:

2014 Candybox, gaming console (pew pew, pew pew):


2020 Skateboard wheel weighted shifter:
[/QUOTE]

And for a bonus here is a youtube guy who makes a 0.8 pound weighted shift knob for cheap:



Mine was infinitely cheaper, and has a better weight.
