    would this be possible?

    would it be possible to recreate a gear layout for the top of a gearstick like this out of vinyl same as this one?

    I would say it was possible , but what would you protect it with as the vinyl being so fine it wouldn't take much to rub it off , Unless of course you can get a clear vinyl to cover it or lacquer it , Lacquer would be time consuming as you couldn't put to heavier a coat on as it would lift the vinyl ,but in thin coats built up it would be fine

    You could get some of that water slide transfer stuff from eBay, and then you can save a few coats of laquer !!

    You could try a custom domed badge from heko, would be pretty good for the end result.
