I'm pretty sure I have seen that people are making them, but I have no idea who. I'm missing a vin plate thanks to my PO, and my shifting instructions are wrong. If anyone could point me in the direction of eone who does that, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

A quick search found these guys, and they have s*** knobs as well.
I can' verify anything (no affiliation) but could be worth a look.

I was looking at making my own replacement shift stick knob and matching plates at some point. but the FJ55 shift instructions are a sticker wich would be easy to replicate.

Unfortunate. Sorry to hear about that. How much for both plates?

shipmag made a custom plate for me showing my twin stick and sm420 shifting. Look it up on a thread called "shift plates"

Thanks, Alec! I'll look for that thread.

Sorry, I just don't know how to link it for you

I just found it. It looks like I would need pretty much the same plate you have, for the doubler and twinsticks.

Any chance you and Dennis want to go run Chinaman Gulch when I get this build done?

Those are very cool. Excellent work.

If I ever get close to finishing my truck... shiny paint and all, I’ll have to get a full set of custom plates made to match my specs. It’d be a very cool topper on the cake.

Sorry purists, mine will have a ‘72 4 bolt 350 with TPI off a Camaro. It still has a Toyota 4-speed, but the case has been modded to have a square shift pattern that also includes 2wd Low range.

It’d be a lot of fun to try to convince people it came that way. The way things are heading, future generations won’t even know what spark plugs are. If things go well, it’ll all look stock(ish).
