New Look to My Drake Shifter

So I came to the conclusion that the clear anodize aluminum look to the Drake shifter (it does look amazing like that) didn't really fit with everything else I had been doing to the car. So I played a favor card and this is the result...

A little black anodizing goes a long ways in changing the looks of things... I know some won't approve, but I love it. Just thought I would share.

That looks better IMO. Where in the world can you get something anodized?

We do it at my work for aircraft parts. Look for someplace that does metal plating in your area.

IMO it looks like ya cheapened it by doing that..As it is, it was not the best looking knobs from the get go..
Not flaming ya just stating my opinion for feedback purposes...
And all that matters is that you like it.....Hell it may even look better in person for all I know!!
