Shift patterns badges resources.

Oddball categories that are too big in their own scope to fit anyplace else. (like Wheels).

Shift patterns badges resources.

I was amazed at how expensive shift pattern badges could get (some where over 30 bucks, wtf??) so I was pleasantly surprised when I found this place, via ebay.

Standard shipping is included in the price. So I just got myself the proper 5 speed shifter decal thing, in silver, from them for 9.99.

Rodney Dickman sells them, also. They are vinyl instead of metal.

Nice! Thanks for letting us know!

That's the one draw back with the one I got, it was a hair too big to fit into the notch for it.

Is there enough contact area to make it stay in place? I like the looks of them. Maybe the stock pattern area could be filled with JB Weld and smoothed out level to give full contact with the adhesive.

Yup, there was a decorative line around the near-edge of the badge, I'd have to slice it down to get rid of that outer line to get it to sit. The adhesive on the back of there is damn good. It sticks pretty good with what touches. Hasn't moved at all.

I was thinking more on line of leaving it original size, filling the pattern area on the console to the same level as the rest of the plate then sticking that metal decal down on top of it. Would that work?

Yeah, I think that'd work great. The badge wouldn't be flush, I'm aware it's there when I brush my hand over the console (it has never shifted). But if that isn't a big deal then you definitely wouldn't need to worry about it moving!
