DIY - E28 Wooden Shift Knob Mod

Personally, I love the ergonomics of the E28's "dogbone" shift knob much better then the popular MTech knob. So much so that I wore through the leather wrap on mine. What the wore out leather revealed was that the knob was made of wood. Solid wood. It'd be a shame to just discard such a thing...

Badge is held on my double sided tape.

Clean up and sand to 600 grit.

After 16 coats of semi-gloss lacquer.

Re-apply badge with 3M double sided automotive badge tape.

    1. E28 he says. So, an '81 to '88 5-series.

      Ps. This is fantastic. Nice little touch that.
