Has Anybody Taken Off the Shift Pattern Tab on the Gear Stick?

I have yet to fix that dang shift knob. I've been looking at it, and the only part that is chipping is the shift pattern sticker/tab part. Can I take it off and buy one online maybe?

Do you think they are mostly the same size?

Tired of this tape, it's ghetto as F-!

Maybe replace it with an SS knob? Not sure if those will fit. Anyone know?

Lame :/ yeah man, I dunno the way the whole gear shift looks it doesn't seem like a normal after market one will fit unless I do extra stuff to it. I tried to pull it off myself but couldn't get it anyway, cause at one point I did go ahead and buy a cheap one at Pep Boys to try out.

There are never any standard trans Cobalts around here, either, raaaawr tired of this.

It fell off!? Wow... Yeah, apparently not that great of quality interior with these cars.

@BankerBalt - Lol, I would love to put in a short throw, but definitely can not afford that anytime soon : (
