Shift Knobs, Worn out Leather, Neat little Trick.
The Leather was worn out on my shift knob on my 86 5K TQ. All of the
other leather is in really good shape and it meade the interior look
too "used" I did not want to buy a MOMO knob very $$$$.
Anyway I carefully peeled the leather off and found that Audi used
some really nice wood under the knob. I sanded it quick with 600 Grit
and stained and coated it with clear... Thae trick is to carefully cut
around the plastic shift pattern scm. on top. I didn't have much luck
trying to pry it off.
Anyway it makes for a real nice knob, good feel, and best of all Looks
Just a trick I thought Id pass along.
