Default Homemade golf ball shift knob

I work at a golf course and, this is what I did during this morning's frost delay. Material list: 4 washers, a bushing, and a golf ball. Cost: $0.00! Actually, since I did this at work, I was paid to make the shift knob!

It is noticeably shorter than the stock knob and much lighter. Personally, I like the weight of the knob, but it is just a tad small. Nothing I won't get over, though, because I love this thing!

Nope, I had to make an insert to hold up the shift boot and, I think its too soft to just thread.
