So if you look in my original pictures a previous owner tried to paint the gear shift plate some shade of brown to match the car interior. They failed miserably and tried to paint it while still in the car. I pulled the gear shift **** out and made a video that i will edit on the DIY how to, to my YouTube Chan but i would like to do it when i can show how to change the lights to LED and maybe some other cool stuff like add a usb jack etc. Anywho originally I am sure it was awesome wood grain but the laminate etc was all bubbly and then painted over. I was like F it ill sand it down and make it somebody may even plasti dip it, or paint it or whatever. Low and behold looks what lies under all that fake woodgrain and just above the plastic!
Now i just need some paint thinner for the button, and my wife is going to sew some small leather pieces like a vagina shape where the gear shift goes back and fourth. That plastic piece is trashed. There was also like 230k worth of crap under there it was nasty!
