Metal relay lever I use is simply OEM. I do ceramic coat them and sometimes paint to color at somebody's request. I typically don't modify the metal OEM relay lever as it is already approx. 11% shorter than the OEM plastic one. If you go too much shorter you risk 'the money' shift. you can check out my fb page - Shorty's Short Shifters for VW to see pics. If you need any more pics just let me know!
