Here it is. Tomei 70mm shift ****. Hardest part was getting the stock shift **** off but after that it was good . I super glued the shift boot collar to the shift **** because there was play between the **** and the collar. Install was easy and it looks slick!

How did you turn that Crown Royal cloth bag into a boot? It's a nice touch

why thank you. Its fairly common in modded shift boots.
I just cut the bottem of the bag and and made some holes in it like the stock boot. If u take off the stock boot you can see how it's mounted.
Mine isnt 100% yet. It will need a second bag to fill in some side gap. I will just take it to local tailor or cleaner with a tailor.

Is that a sledge from Billetworkz?

It is not, I have seen those in person and the **** i have is much less "blocky" than the one from billetworkz.

I dont recall the name of the guy that made mine but he does it as a side job. Just takes an order and then makes them in his spare time

EDIT: my original picture is HORRIBLE quality so I can try and get a better picture to actually show how nice the shift **** looks

Ive been thinking of making some wooden knobbers as a hobby thing. Haven't gotten around to actually doing it though.

Sometimes it's a ***** and you need to wrap it with some cloth and break out the channel locks.

Ok so here is a good one... Anyone know what size nut will fit over the factory stud? Ive tried m10 standard and m10 pitched thread both were super close but neither seemed to be exactly correct...

I'll start the mad search.
M10 X1.25 fitment guess I'll order some of these... I got M10x1.5
