Does anyone have good examples on what to do with this thing? I'm often get the sun reflecting off of it and into my eyes, and it's driving me nuts.

I want to replace it or something, but want to see what other people have done.

(2009 Automatic SRT8)

Thanks!

I got my spray from paintexpress(dot)com. Plug in your paint code, get a can of spray, and a can of clear coat, it works great. I've sprayed so many things including my engine half covers, then cleared them and it looks factory. Good Luck.

Thanks Elvis, I appreciate it.

If you put 3 coats of clear after the color, it will not scatch as long as it is applied correctly, and you don't drag stuff across it. Mine still looks as good as the day I did it, that was over a year ago.

I agree. The sun is always reflecting off mine. Try the Hurst comp shifter kit. Looks like there is no chrome on it. Runs about $250. It's on my mods wish list.

You think that you could maybe post a link to that website you bought it from? I think that the one I am looking at is incorrect.

Soo you've seen da light, eh? Two ways I fixed that problem in my SE. First was to use 1/4" black pinstrip tape down the middle top of bezel, lookks good and cuts the glare to nada. But u can use the 6-speed boot to cover intire shifter with added bonus of the bezel is painted silver NOT chromed so 6-speed drivers have no idea how BAD that chrome puppy glares straight into your eyes like a bug under a magnafier! Shnappa, pic look familar?
