    i made a white vinyl one myself, just ripped apart the old pattern, cut the same size and sewed it back together... turned out really good and only costs a couple bucks.

    I know not many people are fans of the T-handle, but trust me they're VERY nice and easy to handle. The boot if from an Audi.

    tell me which one you want and i'll tell you how much. usually somwhere around 25% off sale price (depending on the item).

    *EDIT* hey Matt, i'm also having some custom billet shift knobs made specially for my business. They're gonna resemble a large drill chuck. They're gonna come either polished or non. My friend is gonna make them, im just having a little trouble getting the money together to have a batch made. They'll cost around $20 bucks + s/h.

    My friend just got this shift knob, and I think its awesome. It feels so good to use as well. And for a boot, I would say get a good quality momo or something, but if u want cheap then make ur own.... or... dare I say.... APC

    Mikey Mike, show me what you want for the shift boot, and I'll make one. I've been making a few here and there and they're coming out pretty good. Just tell me what color, and what kind of design you want. There's a bunch of possibilities, just give me an idea of what you want.

    ....ps..if you want one, hit me up on the cell.

    I made my own boot. Red and black leather, and then i went out and bought a shifter straight from honda. ones for the 03 civic si, all i had to do was use my tap and die set and re-tap the short shifter also for a civic and the inside of the shift knob. It looks real damn sharp and its soo comfortable. all biliet aluminum
