new idea

sleve over the bottom of the gear knob and the top of the plastic slider on a cinq to get a non standard cinq gear knob on!!!

1) std setup

1) took off plastic slider on cinq gear stick
2) measured siz of tube and bottom of new gear knob (22mm on both)
3) got a tube with 21.5mm inside to tighly fit on the top of the gear slider and bottom of new gear knob

not dodgy my man
as the cinq metal gear shaft will slide up and down the inside of the new gear knob, so there is no pressure on the sleeve

Mase,meshing that top it would be very effing hard.not impossible....

The top mounts for the bumper are behind that. Would need careful work with a hot knife
