Lasstss, once again you put together a quality mod :D . How is your shifter knob attatched? Is it like the stock one where it clips in place :crying: , or is it a screw down on the shifter stalk type :D :D :D ? I am tired of pulling my stock shifter knob off at every hard shift.

As I see no need to ever take it off again I put clear silicone adhesive in the knob. That and it has 1 set screw in front that hooks into the notch in the stalk. It aint coming off...

How much $$$ for knob and boot?

As I only made 10 of them here is the story. The shift knob is $125. The boot is $40 and you can buy that direct from Redline. Its a soft glove leather, not that cardboard that cadillac used.

The knob cost $115 to machine of 6061-T6 alloy. Then it went to the plater. The finish is exactly the same as the door handles etc. I gave the last batch of stuff away, cant do it this time.

I also made up another batch of knobs and door locks. I will post this to the FAQ when Reed is back.:canttalk:

lasstss, I went to the Redline website but can't find the boot you have... do you have their part number?

Just e mail Maciek at that address, you pay by paypal. Just say its for the CTS-V. He patterned it from mine. Its shipped from Poland believe it or not. Pretty sure its $40 or so.

One issue, his soft boot is made for the factory knob, not my handle. The difference being that to use my knob the top doesent get finished and is made a bit tighter.

Two last question... (1) does the factory shifter knob pops right off? and (2) how does the boot frame come off?
