[DML] Award Winning Shifter Knob



First, 
  Let me say that this was my first DCS and it was fantastic. I 
thought Ken and all of those who helped out did an awesome job! 
Thanks. 
  After winning the "Best Shifter Knob" award, many people have asked 
about it so I posted pictures on the DML Group site.

It does not have LEDs or wild colors/designs. It is a simple 
chrome/black shift knob. But there is a funny story behind it. It is 
made by Razo and I purchased it last year after the DMA spring 
social. Tom Watkins (I am sad to see that he is selling his car) had 
this particular knob and I thought it fit very well without being 
over-bearing. Well, the weekend before the DCS, Dave and I were 
fixing up the trim and cleaning the Electric D and my car and I 
noticed that the black rubberized paint on the knob was peeling. I 
was annoyed since I only had the knob about 1 year. So deciding to 
repair it, I used a roto-wirebrush to remove the rubberized paint. 
This created gauge/gooves in the metal. I masked and painted it with 
SEM Trim Black, but was unhappy with the resutls. After winning the 
award, I think that the goove marks actually makes the knob resemble 
carved wood. 
  So Tom's car has the same "award winning" knob, but wihtout the 
simulated wood-grain finish.
