CHECK OUT MY NEW CUSTOM SHIFT KNOB !!!!

This is my new billet shift knob(s) from BARTON INDUSTRIES, they are a new vendor here on C5. After talking to them about making a special engraving i wanted, and also one that a friend wanted, they sent me the CAD drawing to OK, then a couple days later.........

The pistol grip is BY FAR the most comfortable shift knob i have ever felt. It makes it seem that it is a short-throw now. They have some of the best craftmenship i have ever seen, and THE best , clearest instructions to match.

It took me about 5-10 min. to install the adaptor, and now that its on, i can switch the knobs out in seconds.

The ball knob is WAY more comfortable than the factory knob also. It will also work with the black stick hurst short-throw shifter also.

TOP QUALITY FOR SURE

Check them out here....

They look great - haven't seen an Iron Cross on anything in quite a while - looks superb.

Very nice. How does the pistol grip feel while shifting? Also is it right that the stock knob just "pulls" off? Great looking addition!

thanks,

the kit and the custom knob was $120, not bad for a billet anodized knob(s) with my choice of engraving

I got mine today WOW what a work of art. The pistol grip feels like it was made for MY HAND! I found a video of the install. Hope this helps out with some of the questions on here. It's on their site too.
I've never loaded a video so I hope I do it right
