Default How To Shorten E-brake And Shift Knob

Has anyone shortened the lever e-brake, it takes up a lot of room in the center?
How do I shorten the shift knob and replace it with something aftermartket? My oem leather one is showing age.

Default Re: How To Shorten E-brake And Shift Knob

Are we talking a CVT or Auto shift handle? I would think that shortening the e-brake handle would be pretty involved since the release is integrated into the handle. For a CVT or Auto shift handle, you'll have to remove the factory knob and cut the actual shifter post...the aftermarket knob will typically use some sort of set screws to secure it to the post.
