Blox shift knob:



I got a message today from a local shop that the shift knob I'd ordered had arrived, so I wandered over to pick it up.




I went with the Blox 490, in Neo Chrome. Since the car's colourful, why not the shift knob?

Size comparison:



It turns out the OEM boot isn't long enough to sit against the bottom of the knob, so without being able to use the included nut to secure it, a ziptie holds it in place instead. I think making a longer boot is on the to-do list.



And, everything back in place. The weighted knob falls into place nicely when shifting gears, and I'm a sucker for the colours.
