Back to our conversation about Knobs........My "Frankmar" Real Carbon & Red Ryanstar Knob has just arrived from China (ordered 06/05/20, ordered through ebay UK, sent and tracked, and...It's a REAL RYANSTAR product, phew!
I studied Franks diagrams, removed OEM knob and weighed both, OEM much heavier (10-11 Lbs to 7-8Lbs Ryanstar) so I was a little reluctant to bore the center out more as the weight in a gear knob is important, they say. Anyway, I decided to place a M12 shiny washer over gear stick to sit atop of gaiter then use bottom 3/4 " of the LARGEST of the 4 supplied adapters as a spacer. i placed the Ryanstar Red band over the gear stick , fitted Real Carbon knob, tightened grub screw then band.....here is result....... Both ways look cool, I think, Cheers ron
A "Very" sharp eyed Member just pointed out to me through "Brexit Mods" thread that i wrote Lbs when of course I should have written OUNCES otherwise I would own the heaviest Gear Knob on the site......Cheers

Took a drive on a twisty country rd with the MRS. Recorded on Track Addict and she pushed harder. Stopped at Fiat dealer to see the new Abarths they just got in.

Installed sound deadener in trunk and around the gas fill. Can't wait to take it for a drive to hear the difference. Thank you ExtremeRevolution for your expertise. Took less than 30 minutes. Have 2 pieces left.

Maybe. That's why I want to know the dealer. Those cars may be so new that they don't show up on searches yet.
Fingers and Toes crossed for you Matey........Best of Luck.

Windows tinted last week, received the mopar trunk liner yesterday, seriously disappointed by the fit on that. Also added at least 5hp with the valve stem caps:p wonder how quickly those will be stolen.
Also received my Amsoil shipment, air and oil filters, waiting for my Ford M/T fluid.

That mopar trunk liner sure is cute. Thought about getting the OEM Mazda MX5 cargo tray/liner but not sure if I want the Mazda logo 😅
