So is that a smaller diameter shift map than the one used on the 240Z?

Or is it the same one, just in a different color? Or something with a completely different construction (like cloisonné)?

I only have Blue, haven't seen a gold one.

 

How much you are looking to get for it?

Here is a picture of it....mostly came on C10 GTX's!! But the first made C110 came with the Gold shift knobs.

Wow this is great....did yo made this knob?

It's easy then to make a kenmeri shift knob. Or a plastic Skyline horn emblem with letter S on it.See picture.

Yup. I made that knob. Top to bottom.  The knobs I've made are a labor of love. Easy? No!!  :)

If I had a Kenmeri shift knob that I cold use as a pattern, I could probably copy it. But to be honest... If they are available already, then it's probably cheaper to just buy one.

The kenmeri knobs are discontinued from the dealers...but they are available for $250 in  JDM-car-parts.com
