Handbrake Job

I'm really wanting to remove the plastic handbrake handle and get a nice brake handle and boot. But before I attempt to do anything, just wondering if anybody knows if it can be done.

Yep, the plastic part just slides right off. Dont yank it too hard tho, cuz the clip on the bottom of the plastic might break off. Cuz mine did, lol... as far as a boot or handle goes, idk, but ive seen it done b4...

I got a MOMO ebrake handle. As far as I know MOMO's fit. All you have to do is file/sand/dreamel a small lip on the end of the plastic part of the handle (when the plastic cover is removed of course the handle under the big ugly plastic cover is plastic as well i know a lil confusing lol) and it will fit on just like that. Easy simple 10 second job!
