Always liked Bride seats.


And Nismo shifters.


I have that same shift knob! I bought it from motorsports....i liked it a lot, and it was one of the cheaper ones so it was win win baby! I have a metal blitz shift know in my rx7 that I really like...except for on hot days when it tries to burn my hand...

I also love the bride seats...they are very very nice. Only seat I can think of that comes close would be corbeau seats...my step dad has a set in one of his rx7s...they are really nice as well.

It looks tho like it would make for uncomfortable and slow shifts lol.

Yeah, really a round knob is the best for comfortable shifts... I notice most racecars have round or rounded-off cylindrical knobs. But for a street car to cruise around it, it's cool

I'd like to know the thread of your knob, is it 10X1,25?
I appreciate.

Does it existe a rubber/plastic/duracon/delrin knob for better grip? I don't like the metal ones because of the heat.

i was looking for pink racing seats for awhile but gave up when i couldnt find any. now its on to green seats.

i have this idea of a wooden shift knob, if youve ever seen those stone carvings of stuff like the elephants that have been hollowed out but have miniatures carved into it. i would love to do a shift knob like that.
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

Don't have a pic but, I used to have a stock MR2 MK1 shift knob in my Toyota 4X4 and it was nice.  I like the Nismo ones also.

Too bad I have an Auto right now  

As for seats, my buddy has Sparco Torino 2's in his 240Z and they look really nice.  I also gotta agree with DerMetzger and Draconis, Brides are the $hit.

this is my hand made shifter. i used yellow brass and buffed it till it looked like gold. its 14oz. i engraved the shift pattern into with roman numerals designated to a corresponding gear.(I,II,III,IV,V-then i just used R)its a one piece sand-casted. i used a hi-lo lever as the mold.


as for a seat depends on the weather. i like bride, omp, sparco, recaro, but mostly i want to get a non-reclinable for the driver and a reclinable in the passenger side.
