    momo shift knob & (slightly botched) shifter trim install

    Recently installed a momo sphere airmetal/leather knob and momo shift boot.
    AFAIK there are no GC8 shifter trims available to buy, so I decided to test out making my own. It didn't come out perfect, but it was just a test piece. I didn't like the way I originally installed it, so I took it out and re-did it, which caused the nails to push up through the paint. Then in my haste I made a few dents in the wood trying to get them back down. The camera really makes it obvious, friends say they can barely tell, so I may end up just leaving it, but at some point I will probably pull it back out and totally re-finish the surface.

    Any/all comments welcome

    Out with the old


    In with the new

    A few more misc interior shots just for fun

    Steering wheel was NOT my idea, came with car. Thinking about replacing eventually, but it actually feels really nice. And the red matches the red on the Ver.III STi seats


    New GPS Radar Detector




    Blitz Boost gauge


    Sometimes I get a little forgetful...

    Couple of night shots too



    Boost gauge is so much brighter than other gauges, makes pics difficult


    Window switches are not backlit, so used an LED to make finding them easier


    I know it's ricey, but I find the illuminated footwells pretty useful. Especially when the passenger is wearing a short skirt


    Radar scope


    That's all for now

    You have the crazziest intirior i have ever seen. Pops though I know full well how difficult moding that whole thing is. Somone jacked my stereo along with 200$+ of bezel in my old 1994 impreza so I fabed up some stainless plate steel to cover the whole thing. I probobly spent 40+ hours making that danm thing. It was very intimidating once compleated though gc8's kick ass.

    I wish I could make something out of metal
    I was working with the absolute bare minimum of hand tools, and cheap ones at that.

    Yeah, it's different, and I think part of that is from multiple owner's style. I'm slowly trying to make it my own though. I'm gonna pull out that steering wheel and put in something like a Momo Pilota. Then I think I'll be just about done.
