Ghost images are only available in aluminum. Here is the stainless piece. It's pretty heavy compared to the aluminum piece. I'm guess the image is laser engraved.Post #18 shows the round/ball MGW Gripper with the aluminum topper w/ghost Cobra snake and the 6 speed shift pattern.
Looks like I had another senior moment on the race knob. It's the shift pattern. It was plated too, but it all flaked off. The topper is probably a cast part.
