Got mine today Gav!

I was wondering if there is a correct orientation for the insert as my gear knob didn't have one when I purchased it.

 

Thanks again!

I just screw the knob onto the shaft (hehe) and align the map so it looks straight in position and glue it down when fitted to the car.

 

By the way I hope everyone has received theirs by now?

Hi Guys,

              A couple of pictures with the intalled insert. The plastic chrome was stuffed so I peeled the remainder off and primed and coated with chrome paint. I made the mistake of using a clear coat which made it look like aluminium. The wood was oiled over a couple of weeks to close up the gaps as the wood expanded then finished with  Birchwood Casey "true oil" which is used on rifle stocks and dries hard. This can be left glossy or rubbed with 0000 steel wool to get a dull finish. The insert was fitted using black silicone which when dry the excess can be rubbed off and it does not affect the resin in the insert of oiled finish on the wood. NOT ORIGINAL. But then neither is the insert.

Regards

David.

I love the finish on the wood, think I might give that a go on mine.

I bought a genuine 4-speed knob a while back. Unfortunately these are not identical to the original knobs in that the wooden section is wider and slightly higher. The metal base is also a different shape.

You can see these differences in this photo, showing an original knob on the left and the newer version on the right.
