I may have to convert to a T5 just so I can get one of your knobs.:banana:

How do these mount? Can you show a shot of the bottom? I'm diggin' that Rat Fink knob.

I'd love to mount a Rat Fink on an old Brodie knob I have. The plastic knob that's on there now is cracking on the interior and I'm worried it could break off some day. I'm guessing there's a pin molded into the knob to hold it. Might be possible to take a die and cut some threads.

Plus, who wouldn't want a glow-in-the-dark Rat Fink knob?? I'll sign a liability release so you won't be responsible if it whacks me in the chin one day!

Hello, Kenny.

What are the knob and light for, that are mounted in the middle of the dash to the left of your instrument panel?

The interior of your car is beautiful.

Thanks, Dennis.

Hey Kenny ,

I'm working out of state and do not have a picture of the bottom of a knob. I make threaded inserts out of aluminum on my lathe and then resin them into the knobs. 3/8 -16 is what I have been using for my shifters. I have thought about making Brodie knob just have not had time. The Rat fink is probably a little bigger than you would want on your steering wheel. Maybe not. On my Face Book page "Low Down Shifters" I have a some photos of the blue ranchero knob I made for Gene. It shows the threaded insert. Also there is several rough casting photos of projects just waiting to be finished. I would interested in taking this project on for sure.

Like my page and when I get home I will be adding more photos.

The knob on top is a switch you turn. If I ever find a nice, early 60's rear window defogger I was going to use it for that. It says "DEFOG" and I think was from a Fairlane. The red light below says "BRAKE" and was originally for a Mustang. It's hooked to a switch that lights it when the parking brake is set.

Got to try out my new knurling tool today on a few threaded inserts. Now I can move forward with some new knobs

Used a military challenge coin and made a brass threaded insert to match.
