Hey im new to the forums i just bought a super clean 96 240sx about 2-3 months ago. the car onnly has 95k miles on it and ive put 4 of them on it. The car looks super clean minus small craters in the hood which i think is from whoever painted the car!
Something for a little fun though, or a budget mod is changing the shift knob to something you can find around your house most likely, something cheap, hopefully free.
I've made a tennis ball into a shift knob on my 240, screwdriver, half a pair of boxers, and your good to go!
1. Make small hole in part of tennis ball, if tennis ball has a name id make it so it faces straight up, (but thats me.)
2. Stuff tennis ball full of something so that its not loose, i chose boxers which worked good for about 50-60 shifts, then started getting loose. You could use silicone or something of that consistency but you may ruin the threads and i didnt want it to be a permanent mod, just something to hold me over til i get the money for a nicer one.
Pros - Completely different feel from stock 96 leather wrapped, Lightweight, Good grip.
Cons - Fuzzy... s*** gets everywhere in shift boot, not my favorite texture.
If anyone else has any ideas please post up,im new to nico but ill be here often!
ps Also, any DIY job, anything simple, such as taking out back seats. any small project that actually is fun or makes the car look better in the end. or perform better whichever you want.
