    Custom shift knob? ideas please

    Hello, I have a 2013 Fiat 500 pop hatchback. Manual of course. and I am looking to have someone make me a custom shift knob, I just dont know where to go to get this done.
    I finally figured out the plan for the vehicle and would like to slowly start moving that direction with it.

    Any ideas on where I can go will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    For truly custom, you can go somwhere like https://www.twistedshifterz.com/. You can order shifters with set screws, or do like I did. I bought a tap/die set and cut threads on my shifter stalk to m10x1.25 then I could just screw on a knob easily.

    I chose a custom design that matches my car's colors:

    Did you lose the reverse lock out when you tapped the shifter shaft?

    Th Abarth doesn't have a reverse lockout like the Pop/Sport do. If you do this on a Pop/Sport you will lose reverse lockout. The only way to retain lockout on those is to buy a shifter/knob specifically designed for them that includes its own lockout.

    CPR or Ron Christian from Chicago is a machinist (has been for many years) and he has made several knobs and unless things have changed he offers other parts as well. I think NGEN (Bryan) down in Texas is the main (maybe only) source for his goods and might be someone to get in touch with about something custom.

    Other than that as mentioned above there are other options out there for non custom stuff as well with large selections in some cases.
