cause yeah how lame. the knob on my car (05) was painted silver in the middle to "look" like a nice aluminum panel with the pattern in it. paint started to peel off it in a matter of months. Anyone else have that problem? It looks lame now!
mine did to so i decided to pop the silver part out and repaint it. i painted it silver with a little more metal flake and then after that dried i sprayed it with blue and wipped the face off immediatly so that it left the numbers blue. it looks factory and has lasted longer than factory.
ah man the middle part comes out? lol I tapped it all off and tried painting it and it turned into a nightmare!! yours sounds nice now. shoulda cleared it like a million times to make shure it don't rub off! I just got a Roush knob its all aluminum so that wont happen again.
I had my shifter replaced because no matter what I did, I\'d get a grinding going into third. Guys here told me that the shifter was shot. The replacement they installed was the one from the ST. The knob on that one is a LOT better than the original.
lol now that I know the middle part pops out. I drenched the whole thing in gas. got ALL the paint off. poped it out. cleaned it up. re-painted the middle peice with some silver metalic duplicolor and cleared it with tremclad clearcoat. looks good now. lets see if it stays that way! I don't really like the Roush shifter I have its too small and sits lower. its not comfortable at all and I could actually shift BETTER before!
