Default Gear shift change out

I think it's still called the gear shift... even though I have an automatic

But I wanted to change it out for an alice in wonderland themed one. I decided that my theme on my car will be more alice related. ANy ideas on finding one that's a different shape or would it be easier to paint the existing one? And if so then paint recommendations

I believe that's called the AutoStick from what I've read here.

I think there are ones available here

FLAMEBALL Abstract Design Shift Knob: Raspberry Splash

You can choose "Automatic" when ordering.

sure you can make one but u would have to figure the mechanic's of it. like where the spring goes, or how it goes and where to drill the screw hole and stuff like that. I think for now i'm just gonna wrap mine in vinyl

I've been through several now, from one's lit up with LED's which were way too distracting, to solid billet, to what I have now, which I really find the most comfortable, especially with a manual tranny, it's great for fingertip control.
