    Introduction and Mark VIII Manual Swap + Progress

    More updates and progress! We are working on getting a nice shift-knob along with some fun novelty ones. The "wood" one (can't tell if it's real or fake) is nice, except the clear-coat on the pattern itself wore off. I'm thinking about buying a shift pattern plate off of online and glue on...
