Shift knob vinyl Wrap

So my stock 6 speed knob has been peeling and looks like shit... So as I passed by the "sticker shop" at the mall today I decided to ask for some scrap black vinyl to wrap the chrome bit. Turns out even though i've done some wrapping in previous cars, the shape of this knob just makes it a bitch to wrap. So I just thought I would post some before and after pics. Also, forgive the fact that the edges look like shit. The chrome piece doesn't seperate from the rubber piece so it's really hard to make it look good. Also, this is just a temp fix because I just ordered the suede performance knob from BMW today I am also going to be making some serious purchases tonight so I will update later with some pics to show you whats to come!
