    Wooden Shift Knob

    I am looking for a "Cost Effective" wooden shift knob for my 996. I would be interested in something that might need some refurbishing.

    I have removed the center consul and would like to get an older look to the interior and a wood shift knob will move the look in the right direction.

    Perhaps not cost effective, but I think it looks good!

    Not sure if you're handy or not (or interested in making your own) but the following video gives good pointers on how to make your own:

    PS: If you haven't heard of Throttle Stop Garage, this guy (in Alberta!) is making a really cool carbon-fiber reskin of a Volvo Canadian. It's worth watching.

    That is a great video. I may have to use some Redneck ingenuity to make one myself. Thanks for sharing.

    I have a small lathe and made a shift knob a while ago for a BMW. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, but I don't think I have any photos.

    Just watched the Throttle Stop Garage videos and I am impressed. His workmanship looks great for doing it in a garage. Where is he located?

    there is a guy on Pelican that makes them (I think he builds guitars too), not sure about cost effective, but I?ll ping him.

    Do you have the shifter lever out of the car right now? If so, I wouldn't mind seeing the dimensions that the knob needs to fit.
