my shift knob 'n boot set-up

just finished installing my shift knob and boot. they're Momo Automatic Black Shift Knob and Momo Profile Gray Shift Boot. the shifter has been cut about an inch or so and it still function like the stock.

i've read that some ppl had an issue about not having to get to D1 ... and some are saying that they can shift w/o having to push the knob, which i think isn't safe at all.

installation isn't that hard at all ... it just takes time if you want to to look nice. quality takes time. you can probably do this w/o even looking at any DIY instructions. it's pretty much common sense ... really.

let me know what you guys think

looks good man. what'd you use to keep the shift boot on the shaft? i'm gonna put one around my TL shifter...but I need to know how to keep the boot from sliding down.

awesome job. i've always liked that knob!

the boot has a plastic that you can thread it to the momo knob. i'm not sure if all Momo Boots are like that, but the one i got is. so they really worked together

Looks great, did you had to grind the ebrake handle down in order to fit a aftermarket one?

What kind of boot is it?

i'm sure there are lots of ways to take care of the boot. if i didn't got the Momo boot, i would probably use some zip-tie or something to hold the boot. put the zip-tie on the inside so it isn't visible.

i used a dremel to cut the shifter since it's the only tool i got, but i heard some ppl actually use a pipe cutter, which i'm sure it would work better.
