Grenade 4x4 shifter

I saw one of these in a magazine for about $60, so I made my own. I think it came out pretty good. What do you guys think?

I'd like it more if it was black with white lettering.

Yep.
Is there a reason you used blue and orange?

Thats the way they come from the Army Navy store. All I did was fit it and install.

Gotcha,
Ya. Take that off and paint it black and then make the lettering white.
Then I'll give it the seal of approval and a thumbs up.

I think they come like that because they are training grenades. I agree with painting the lever since there is basically no way to confuse that with an actual live grenade, haha. Cool idea, my truck has a switch, but if it didn't this is something I would consider doing.

That's great no matter what color it's painted.

I got one of those inert grenades years ago and being in the sign business I made this sign for my Door Bell with one of em.

Everyone who comes to my home loves it.

There's a bucket of water under on the ground under it. Not the best picture of it so you have to look closely for the red and white wires.
