Picked up a Blox 490 sphere knob from @indyb6 last Thursday. Got it in the mail today. Nice and heavy.

Best shift knob ever, a lot less effort putting it into each gear.

Coming from the longer knob, this is like a short shifter.

Thanks! No one really gets it though. I went to the att store a while ago and was asked if it meant track star. ಠ_ಠ

My Spoon Is Too Big's not-so-mega build thread.

Big thanks to @pdc001 for guidance in a good setup that I just tossed aside because I'm cheap and still had the decency to walk me through my install questions.

For a little more oomph in the music, I picked up an 8" powered bandpass box by Dual for $70. Got that bitch wired in today and it sounds like it's worth at least $75 dollars, so I'm happy. Ran the wires through the firewall on the passenger side, under the carpet at the door jams and through to the hatch area. It's got Velcro strips on the bottom that appear to hold it well.

Seriously, look how hideous that thing is with the speckled interior and obnoxious stitching on top. I'll cover that window somehow, but since it's in the hatch, I'll see it almost never so, yeah.

No.
