    Yeah, it's small. This is the WC Lathe Werks knob through TiC. The KB STS is also from TiC and is the complete kit (shifter, all bushings, rear stay).

    Although small I got used to it pretty quickly. As for the STS, it's a hair taller than in the picture due to the angle of each shot.

    Anywho, if you're thinking about the STS I say go for it. The knob is really a matter of a) I wanted something different and b) I happened to get used to it so it doesn't make a difference (pure luck). It is a nice piece, really.

    The boot was also a nice touch and a needed change -- the factory boot drooped almost all the way down to the shifter bushings/pivot points and, although black and hid that fact, I did not like it.

    I took my time to install the boot. I removed the factory boot, sanded the old glue down, used Krazy Glue Gel (use the gel, it's much, much better than the regular KG and I am not a big fan of the original KG), and small binder clips. I took my time and it came out pretty nicely.
