i am thinking of making a custom aluminium shift knob i no that u boil the old knob in water and then it will slip right off. but i dont want to do this till i have a new one to put on. i was wondering what way would i attach a new knob? and also is there any other things i might have to modify or change. the main reason for a custom knob is due to the s/c console getting in the way when i go into 3rd. thanx for any help.
