thanks! :thumbsup:
Question - I see your boot kind sagging a little bit since you don't have a knob adaptor zip-tied to the boot. Did that come with the s2000 knob and you just decided not to use it? I just ordered the RSX alum. shift knob from Delray (which is identical to the s2000 I believe) so I'm wondering if the adaptor and zip-tie is sold seperate? :dontknow:

actually thats how it designed. that adaptor came with A-SPEC RSX Aluminum Shift Knob. see plastic pieces below. when i bought the s2k knob it didnt come with it thats why i didnt sell the shift boot adapter when i sold the RSX aluminum shift knob. if you ordered A-SPEC aluminum shift knob from them it be the same like mine. "saggy' :laughing: it will come with zip tie and you will use that on the black plastic ring below and shift boot.



i used to have this.. and didnt like it..

Ok, great. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

The stock knob fits perfectly for my hand and I like the look of it but I'd say it's time for a change. Really looking forward to this one!

Got the RSX aluminum 6MT knob installed and I'm a little shocked how much of a difference it makes having the extra weight for thr throws. Reeeeally like it! Installed it according to the instructions and I'm still not sure how I feel having that 1inch or more of the shift arm exposed. I guess if it bothers me I'll get the rubber washer like some members have done? Not too wild about the strutking one either.

Being in southern AZ the heat might be a problem though.. I might have to cover it or something when I park somewhere so I don't burn my hand when I return.

I might just have seasonal shift knobs.. is probably what I'll have to do. We'll see..
this sounds like a good idea since this time of year it burns like hell to grab on to a full metal one haha. need something a bit more summer friendly

That doesnt look half bad. Why gold? Is the outside color gold?
Just the way the photo was taken to make the OEM knob look gold.. or a filter.. or their really is a gold oem knob that I'm unaware of, ha!

Yea, wasn't thinking when I installed that one. Worst part? I had to cut off the zip-tie that came with the knob to get the ring back off. Sounds stupid but those zip-ties are the perfect size. FML. :sigh:

Yea, it's growing on me! It was painted and clear coated to get that shine. I'll take more pics when's my cam is done charging. I painted it because there are other gold accents on the trim and things.

Gold stock bay (soon with black valve cover)

Oh wow, so it's custom done? Very cool, man! I'm a big fan of the OEM knob so this is very intriguing to me. Well done!

Had trouble finding a zip tie that fit, so I used two small ones
