Shift Knob

Looking at making a few accessories for the Versa. The first one is going to be a shift knob. The design is going to be a 2" black Delrin ball with a cut out for the reverse lever. Still trying to decide on the best way to mount it. The first option would be a press fit. The second would be a set screw. The third would be to thread the shaft and have it screw on. Going to try the first option and see how that goes. Tell me what you think and if you are interested in one.

If you make one for an automatic I'd definitely be in!

I'd be interested for manual and most likely the third option. Just pushing it on doesn't work so well, I already chopped mine down a little bit and put on a new knob.
