opps sorry, I mean, did you pierce through the vinyl to create the stitching holes first to make sure the holes are equally spaced then threaded it or did u start to stitch and eyeball as you went a long?

I got some cloths I can send you that are in need of repair.
Just kidding. Great job!
I may look at this once you get your write up done. Mom has a sewing
machine I could use.

Default Great Job!

Did you use the old shift knob cover as a template for the new vinyl one or do something else?

Was the shift knob all hand sewing or did you use the sewing machine on it too?

Really a Great Job!

This is great! I want to do the same only in an alcantara type material. Do you think the same adhesive would work well with a material like that?

Have you tried to do anything with the e-brake handle? I spruced up my interior with redline goodies (console, shift & e-brake boot) but wanted to match the e-brake handle. It seems there aren't alot of options out there. The spirit r e-brake lever is exactly what I'm looking for but I can't justify the cost.

sorry i havent updated in awhile but my car has been sitting collecting dust while i build a new house, when i have more time in the new year ill be updating this thread and "attempting" the e-brake handle as it really shouldnt be much different than doing the shift knob.
