That looks wicked man i've thought of doing that myself cause i have a woodgrain manual shift knob to match the rest of the car, on mine anyway so with a boot i reckon it would look pretty mad.

I have a pic of the grey boot, its on my auto shifter. Looks better in real life, and doesn't rattle like the auto surround. The switch you see is where i ripped the guts out of the ciggie lighter and is now the home to my new power/economy switch. Sorry about the camera phone quality.


Don't get me wrong, I'm not having a go, but why would you put a manual boot over an auto shifter?

It's probably me just being a toss bag, but that stereo system looks factory...

What are the specs as it looks a bit more exotic than my factory 6 stacker....

'Cos its different, it doesnt rattle and squeak, and looks better IMO.

That is mad! Can you get the same thing in a light gray/leather look? Does it just screw straight on?

I have thought about putting a manual shifter knob on the auto shifter, but want to keep the selector lock-out. I was thinking maybe somehow making it so you press down on the knob so you can change gear (like go from park to reverse)

Haha thanks guys im actually embarassed to say where i got it because i dont shop there and it was the only place that had any woodgrain ones.. (supercheap)

Its got 3 allen key screws around the stick, just tighten them up :) but the only bad thing is that its like having the button pushed in all the time. But that dont worry me, dont have any little ones to bump it or anything yet. Not sure what other types ya can get, I just wanted woodgrain to suit the rest of it.

Oh and the head unit is a premium sound deck from ford.. 250watt with standard alpine amp and think its 8" sub in the parcel shelf.. There is no need to change it IMO I just added a extra amp and some more subbies :
