Hey all, as teh topic says, i cut the shifter and put a shift knob on.
When i took the old shift knob off and put the new shift knob on, it didn't look so good, was waaaay to high.
So i cut the shifter rod down maybe more then 1 inch.
I like the way it shifts now cause its nice a short, not a LONG bar sticking up.
I feel a very very very slim difference in the throw, i guess it just feels shorter.

So here is how it looks like. I really like the way it looks
I will take some better pics of it when i have some time

It looks pretty cool.... and that's a nice looking shift knob.

I've got a momo knob on the way and waas actually thinking of trimming my shifter down as well.

i was under the impression that there weren't any aftermarket knobs that worked. how did you get that one or anyone to fit? and how did you cut it?

well, if you dont mind not being able to take the knob off ever again, you could just jam a small amount of plumbers cement into the knob and jam her on there.

Yea i was very close to doing that, but I figured I'd look for alternatives first :roll: So far no luck.

I cut my shifter as well about an inch. I also put on my new shift knob.
It was really easy. It shifts a little better, and looks great.
