I had alittle time this weekend so I thought I’d do this for my neighbor, He wanted me to make this for his hot rod – dragster- its the color of purpleheart so we thought Purpleheart wood would be a nice touch .
Next I’ll do the dash and accents .

That grip almost looks like a MOPAR original. Great job!

nice setup is it custom fitted to your neighbors hand. seems it might be worth the effort for those of us with other than normal size grips

Nothing feels better in the hand than a pistol grip shifter attached to some raw power
