    It's grey, even though the flash kind of made it look white here. The grey matches the Taco interior perfectly. Got it here: http://www.sickspeed.com

    For those of you with aftermarket shift knobs, just a little tip to keep the boot up. Take the whole console out, put rubberbands on the shaft, then put the console back on. The rubberbands will hold up the boot so it's flush with your aftermarket shift knob.

    How about leather shift knobs with a 6 speed pattern? I love the feel of my OEM one, but I'm looking to upgrade it to something that has a bit of red contrast stiching or maybe a small TRD logo embroidered.

    To this date, I've been SOL.

    35% up front, 20% in the back window tint, 15" Mickey Thompson bullet hole wheels, with 31x10.5 Firestone Destination A/T tires. Glass Pack, High Flow Cat, S&B CAI, Custom Light Bar with 4 fog lights. 2 10" Rockford Fosgate P2 subs with 1000 watt Rockford Fosgate Amp, CB.
    Ah it's good to see these again, good memories making these things. I would love to still be able to make them.

    Actually If I could get enough people I'm sure the teacher would let me come back and make them when I needed to. If you think you might be interested in having one made post up in this thread. Post up, if I get at least three people I'll go talk to the teacher and see about making more.

    Post up exactly like this:

    1. TW name, Choice of metal (brass or aluminum), Size (2" or 3"), Generation (pretaco, 1st gen, 2nd gen), Tranny (Manual or Auto), and the logo or design you'd like on the top.

    So for example:

    1. Pope953, Brass, 3", Pretaco, Manual, Toyota emblem on top.
    2. Next person
    3. Next person

    I'll play too mine look like this in my truck...

    Pope, on a rough estimate..what would those run? Using the scale below.


    $ - $45-70
    $$- $75-90
    $$$- $100+


    Just curious...
