A friend who was restoring a vintage pickup ask if I could make him a pistol grip shifter. He had the hardware but the plastic grip was all broken. I had some cocobolo that would work so I started to carve out a grip. His hand is much bigger than mine so I left it a little big. I have only one photo and a video but the video is too big for this site.

Nothing like a custom shifter handle for that prefect fit. Looks great.
