Ello everyone!

Can you all post pictures of your aftermarket gearknobs and gaitors. Im looking for some insiration! Thinking of going for just a plain black sparco 'ball' knob, not sure how to 'finish off' where the rubber used to be around the actual stick though!

Any comments would be helpful (obviously gearknob related mind you! lol) :D

Plain black leather Momo with original plain black leather gaiter was classy and nice.

Not a great pic, and I can't get another as the car is at the scrappy!

How much difference did you find the shortened lever made?

no pics as i have no camera but, the gaitor on mine is off a mk5 escort, with the plastic tray bit of the centre console cut a bit bigger to make it fit. may be a cheap solution as the gaitors are about 20 quid in the shops

the shorter lever was great, but it was mainly cos i had very low buckets, it felt weird when i put the std seats back in.
