A couple of weeks ago I got in my car and shifted out of park and a bunch of white plastic fell into my hand. Turns out the interior of the shift knob had disintegrated and that plastic piece holds the leather covering in place.

I looked through various custom knob threads here but didn't care for any so I machined up my own. Collected some black Delrin, aluminum and some silicone o-rings and here's the result.

I actually looked at those knobs (along with hundreds of others) and the ones with a button were usually on the side and I really had no idea if that design would work with the spring-loaded plunger on the GenCoupe. Plus there were the unknowns about diameter and height. I finally gave up and since I had the machines to make something custom that I'd knew would fit I went that direction. This one started out as a prototype just so I could get the dimensions and stuff right but once I got done with it I decided it would work and look just fine.
