    good momo knob install?

    i've heard of and seen the rubberband on the boot trick to keep up the momo air leather knob, but is there any way to keep the silver part on the bottom showing AND keep the boot held up? i havn't checked yet but i was wondering if u could cut off the bottom part off the stock knob and somehow fix it on the momo knob. anyone know a good way to install this knob? (i don't like the looks of the subaru-specific knob so i don't have the threads)

    You could always use double sided tape. It sticks very well and you can hide it easily.

    I think the MOMO shift knobs look better without that silver piece at the bottom, though.

    I just installed my Momo Race Airleather knob in my WRX and the boot stays flush at the top against it. Are the boots different for the '05? Do you have that little plastic retaining ring in your boot? What about a few drops of epoxy or something on that to "attach" it to the bottom piece of the Momo?

    There is a guy on nasioc that makes an adaptor for the universal fit momo shifter knobs. It costs like $30 (iirc) and it fits like stock. Awesome fit and great product. I don't have a digital camera, so I can't show you what it looks like installed. It's just a plastic piece that screws onto the shifter and the knob fits over it. The shift boot attaches to it, but doesn't cover the metal piece. I can't remember the guy's screen name. If you search under "shift knob adaptor" you might find it.
