    I also painted my chrome trim to body match color while installing my shift knob.

    @daveeasa hooked me up with a head unit, so I took some measurements.

    Without too much thought I came up with this. Dowel pin the copolymer ring in place as well as a 3D printed connector all in one shot. Although, I would probably make up jigs to drill each component separately. Nylon is more flexible and not as rigid as ABS, so I am assuming the stock clip dimensions shouldn't need to be altered for adequate flexibility. Then again, it might ... we'll see.

    edit: the outer ball shape isn't set in stone (just having fun with my signature look) ... still have no idea what will be offered in the end. It can be anything really, but will obviously have to be limited for production.

    Also, update on the 9 remaining shift knobs. Had a setback this weekend and wasn't able to ready them for ship today. I will post a picture later when back in the shop. Top engravings are finished, V2 collars are made up, but not engraved yet.

    It looks like the old nurseries in hospitals. Everyone stands around, slapping each other on the chest, “that ones mine”. Let’s go smoke a cigar.

    Do you make 1st gen shift knobs? My buddy has one of yours on his 2016 and it’s perfection.

    I haven't yet, but there were multiple discussions (via PM) on the matter. In fact, I was expecting two 1st Gen orders to come in this last batch, but all of the available spots sold out to 2nd and 3rd Gen owners. I am open to it, just haven't had the opportunity to make one yet.

    This is like seeing you're baby in the hospital nursery. Mine
    Looks like mine is the bottom left in the set of 4 on the top right of the picture. Can’t wait!

    Had some fun with Sharpies this evening!
    20210621_195748.jpg

    The ultra fine point markers worked out great with the trace engraving! Hopefully it holds up for a while - although it'll be easy to touch up when needed.

    Even got the grip collar pins while I was at it. :p Maybe a bit overboard... but it makes them blend in a bit more.
