Want to replace my shift knob (blue) with a leather knob that looks close to oem. If not the shift pattern, a TRD or Toyota logo, or just plain would be ok. Anyone have any recommendations?
Shown on page 3 above is actually a recovered original MK2 shift knob, I believe. The TRD model has the shift pattern embossed in the leather.here you go tom, on page 3 there's a TRD style mk2 shift knob..
yep, thats my knob. if you really have your heart set on a blue knob, go to your local upholstery shop and try to find a good leather match. send your knob and the blue leather to Pete and let him redo it.Shown on page 3 above is actually a recovered original MK2 shift knob, I believe.

fail! Shoe guy was not interested and was out of a leather restorer that was the right color. Oh well, I will try a upholstery shop next...I got lucky and sourced a oem blue knob in great condition. just a little wear in the usual places. I am going to take it to the guy that resoles my shoes (cobbler, I think). He should be able to dye/restore the leather, I think. It doesn't hurt to ask. There are products available on the web such as leathermagic, but I need so little of the product. I hope he can help. He is kind of like the soup nazi though. It might offend him to ask for something out of the ordinary, But he does a great job on restoring shoes. I will let you folks know. I have not seen any suggestion like that yet on the forum.
