    I have the right size nut, but I'm having trouble on how to atatch it. I already "attempted" an 8 ball and it didn't end well. Any ideas?

    Drill a hole in the ball the size of the outer diameter of the nut and use goop to glue the nut in.

    I got an 8 ball to do this. I was going to use a tap and dye set. Just never got around to doing it.

    I thought of this also, but I don't have a tap set.

    yup if u drill out the hole smaller than the nut..then use a dremel to make the shape of the nut "it does not have to be perfect" then expoy it in it will never come out
    just be careful to not get epoxy in the threads
    then make me one and send it:notsure:

    Well I got it done today. Drilled a hole a little small like the first time and cut some notches to fit the nut, then glued it. I wish I didnt eff up the 8 ball, but I kinda like the cue ball. I even found a rubber washer that was a perfect fit over the ugly chrome top of the boot.
