    Definitely a hybrid then.

    Remove the two bolts holding the retainer on. Set aside the retainer, but put the bolts back in about half to 3/4 if the way and use those to unscrew the core.

    At that point the shims will be much easier to get out. First post has an exploded parts view to help show what is going on inside.

    Since he clearly has a liking for my products sawed in half, he could technically buy that and make the core into Ti radio knobs. Just sayin ....

    So I am wondering if you have any advice on how to buff out some minor scratches. I took my truck to get some work done and I guess whoever was driving had a ring on and kept banging the knob. Now there are a few minor marks that are starting to bug me. If I had done it that is one thing, but it was someone else.

    Usually the maroon very-fine scotch-brite seen here can take care of the minor stuff. This will only work if the surface is just shined/burnished by the ring, but if there is depth you would likely need to do more.

    Next level would be emery to remove something deeper and I wouldn't go any more coarse than 240 grit on aluminum. For more serious nicks a needle file set would be the way to go, but then you would also need to use the 240 emery and scotch brite to finish.

    My usual time is about 5 weeks and I began on 4/22, so about 5/27 I would say.

    My favorite mountain bike was titanium. I REALLY LIKE titanium. I've looked at Rick post on that Ti shift knob about 50 times. I know it would look and dare I say feel FANTASTIC on my 5 speed regular cab. It's been up for sale for a long time and I know I'm going to kick myself when it sells to someone else. He Rick would you be willing to do a layaway with monthly payments?
