Looking good Apex. I have a question about the low profile boot ring from the top of the thread. I see that it's threaded and I'm wondering how you turn it after it is secured to the boot cover, without twisting up the actual boot cover (I hope that made sense).

Do you just make the zip tie on the inside loose enough for the ring to turn in but tight enough so it doesn't slide out of the boot cover?

Right now I have a shift knob with a lock nut under it and my shift boot is just kind of hanging out, detached. There is a noticeable gap, which is annoying, but what's more annoying is that the boot ring clicks against the knob when I shift. I was thinking I could secure some magnets to the existing boot ring that would hold it to the knob/lock nut, but I don't think that would alleviate the click sounds; it might even enhance them haha.

I never got the chance to zip tie that one as i wanted to try the acura one first. But thats what i would do. It fits very snug to the boot any ways. So you shouldnt have to over toghten the zip tie.

I realize the thread is a little old, but if anyone out there is interested, I've used a number of shift knobs throughout the years (DC Sports, Skunk2, ARC Titanium shift knob, Mugen, etc.) . Shift knobs always depend on vehicle, setup, and personal preference. I think most will agree that a nice heavy weight shift knob is a huge improvement in the Fit. Without preaching too much, if you're willing to invest in a nice shift knob, Raceseng manufactures (in the US!), in my opinion, the absolute best knobs. After using in an 86, I couldn't go back and bought one for my Fit as well. It feels incredible - from the ideal weight to the perfect feel in your hands. They're also super customizable. Anyway, a shift knob is something that you use all the time in a manual car so I think it's a worthwhile investment.
