Leather gear knob recovering

Post by GT4 » Thu Mar 21, 2019 9:00 am

Hi everyone,
Can anyone recommend somewhere to get my leather gear knob recovered? Looking on some old threads i can see Turbo Mike used to do them but not sure if he is still on the forum as his last post said he was moving on?

Thanks,
Gary T,

Not sure if he still does them but try sending Mike a pm. Although he hasn't posted in a while he was on line last week.

Have you tried CCI?

They used to sell them on an exchange basis, mind you it was a long time ago when I got mine!
The quality was good as well.

He certainly has in the past. Pm him if you haven't already.
