    Clever Custom Shift Knob Engraving Ideas

    Guna be ordering a shift knob from Lathewerks (after reading posts about problems with flossy knobs, paint chipping off, poor service), just need to figure out what i want engraved on it. I want it to be something clever, but I'm not creative ha.

    Some thoughts i had were an angry rally pig on the top of the knob with some writing around the knob, putting WRX on it, something clever about turbo lag or boost loading. a mix of all of them. Just need some ideas, maybe it'll spark new creativity.

    Pacman
    A pizza
    Bender
    Homer
    A smilee face

    I'd engrave a nipple on it so it looked like a bewb.

    i'm planning on the SS round knob as well. I love the bewb idea haha.

    some other things that popped into my head were:

    "You never had me"
    Granny-Shifting (with one of those circles around it with a line through it, don't know what their called but basically what means don't do it)
    Granny-Shifting (font with a line through it and then below it Double-clutching without a line through it)

    No better than Lathewerks out there. Worth the few extra $$.

    + on Bewb but have him put some groves to make it more of a feel, also maybe bead blast look if your going have something engraved.

    +1. Glossy aluminum shows fingerprints like no other. I really like the clean, matte look of bead-blasted aluminum.

    I'd be going with stainless steel, and one of the burnt finishes. color depends on whether i want to stay with the black leather or go grey/black alcantara for the shift boot
