Default New custom H55 shift knob

My brother will soon be joining the club. He picked up an 85 fj60 the other day and it needed a shift knob. He made this at work the other day. Pretty awesome.

Hey, Im Rckhound's brother, Adam.

I can make more, Ill figure out a fair price. I can make Shift knobs, transfer case knobs, hell, what ever you want. Possibilities are endless.
Here's a roller I made awhile back for a 3/4" tube bender.

Yeah, there's truth to that. Living in the hills, the only time I ever get to use 5th is going down the passes.
