Here’s a tiny project I’ve been working on for a few months – retro shift plates! I’ve long admired the ARC metal shift plates and wanted to do something of my own. I finally got all of the pieces of the puzzle together and have these in my store.
It’s more than just a little plate. You get 2 mounting methods and the hardware to do either along with the plate. You can either drill holes and screw the plate into place with the included tiny button-head capscrews, or you can glue on the screw tops and stick the plate in place with the included mounting tape.
Yeah, I lopped the heads off a bunch of tiny screws. That’s my level of insanity at the moment.
The plates are 20mm by 30mm. That’s quite small. They fit nearly anywhere. I stuck one all over Sharka for pix. Literally all over. I stuck it on the leather crash pad at one point, but thought better of posting that one.
The little plates are a combination of water-jet cut aluminum and an extremely fancy printed brushed metal sticker. It’s the same material that Mazda used to print the Miata/Roadster design for the OEM door sills. It’s quite resilient material. And being a sticker means it’s easy for me to print new and interesting patterns upon demand.
As I mentioned, these are in the store. Get your car a little something for the holidays?
