Default Shift Knob Idea!

So I won my new Hurst shift knob on eBay last week for $10.00, I realize I obviously don't have a threaded shaft, so I took a look at my knob, and was tapping it with a half inch tap, and the threaded insert inside the knob came out, which is what I was wanting it to do in the first place, so now the knob has no threads and its just a hole and it fits like PERFECTLY snug over the shifter, so I guess tommorow I am going to epoxy it on. I just wanted to pass this on to any of the other manual Ranger'ers on here who think they may also too want to add a Hurst shift knob!

Here are a few photos:

Another thing to use is some black RTV. My dads knob came off and we used that, good as new. If you dont want to mess with mixing epoxy.
