Re: gear knob + hand brake handle

Although metal is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter - I'd not want another one made of metal

It is cold in the winter, though warms with use of course. Never had a problem with it being too hot in the summer. It does though, have a nice tactile feel to it.

Personally if I was going to go for a different knob I'd go for a momo Race Airleather one. Comes in life-reverse and looks good

Hacksaw

Took me 2 minutes to see why you posted the air vent, was sat here thinking 'OK it's a air vent', didn't notice the subtle colour change

Re: gear knob + hand brake handle

I think it looks good mate... One question, how did you change the little side vents to silver, is it a case of removing and applying the contents of an aerosol?
Thanks Tom100hp thanked for this post

Re: gear knob + hand brake handle

THis thread is four years old now so has anyone else done anything like this in the meantime? My 100HP is an 07 with 54k on the clock and I've just noticed the gaiter has holes in. The gearknob is also very tatty so any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Martin.

Check my thread mate.
I've completely made a custom gear/gaiter and handbrake lever/gaiter on my panda. If you interested in how, let me know, I will post more pictures of how I modded handbrake lever. Think gear mod is well explained there.
Let me know if it helps.
