    I get the same question seemingly every day, so always refer to the first post in the thread for updates as to when more knobs will be available.

    Step-by-step for 2nd Gen 6 Speed MT guys/gals.( @dirty deeds confirmed "Exact same process for 2nd Gen 5-spd too") Pull cup holder insert out, takes a little force but it'll come straight up. Remove 4 Philips screws. Clean out center console then remove carpet liner, then two 10mm bolts. Pull center console up and back then you pull the shift surround straight back. Turn boot inside out and remove thread then stock collar. Put new collar in and zip tie. Reinstall everything then just get your knob on and correctly oriented with shims. Attach collar to knob and tighten set screw. Enjoy.

    Just in case, you might want to add that your instructions are for the 2nd Gen. I know it's obvious, but this is TW afterall.

    :cheers:

    Exact same process for 2nd Gen 5-spd too.

    I just didn't take any pictures. Lately, it's been swamp ass jungle season in Kentucky. So, something as trivial as taking pictures along the way of install, isn't priority, just getting the job done is sweaty enough.

    Okay guys, I will work hard this week to come up with the next sale date. Have been making some improvements on my lathe as I plumbed in a better coolant system and upgraded the tool post to a proper Dorian.

    I also will be coming up on 3 consecutive weekends of camping, so that has slowed me down as well.

    I will be back to the grind full force on the 24th, pretty much through September ... figuring I can get at least 30 knobs complete in that time, possibly more.

    Just speakers, wheels and plastidipped emblems
    On the front page, it cautions against using the aluminum knob with delrin trim in cold climates. What is the cold tolerance exactly? -30F? -10F? 0F? 10F?

    I will have to get a progress picture up tonight, maybe Friday even.

    The disclaimer is for all knobs with delrin features. The material is rated to maintain its properties down to -40 (C and F), but we have only had them in sustained temps of -29C(-20F) so far. No reported failures to date and there are plenty out there in Canada and the Midwest at this point.
