got this idea from someone on focus fanatics. kinda been on the fence about it but just went ahead and did it.

I think it adds a little character over the all aluminum colored face. This is just the first coat but i think it turned out real well.
EDIT: Finished

update: Like anyone cares...but i thought it turned out well..so ima post it

as you can see in the first pic all the pitting on the face, it was really bothering me.

So i tired repainting it and it still wasnt to my liking so I polished it. I think it turned out nice. The leather on it is still a little messed up but ill keep it on the car till it gets real ratty.

The other one in the pic is a brand new one i got for $25 off ebay :eek: (normally double that price)

heres a pic (crappy from iphone)

Very nice. I think that is the first polished knob for an SVT that I have seen. Good Job I like.

Chris, plz come over and polish my knob. I'll even pay you a small fee if you finish it off right.

Thanks
