I made both the fragment and ball style grenades into shift knobs and prefer the ball style, feels better in the hand. like stated earlier dip the ring itself into some tool handle dip and no more rattle, use black. also if you can make the handle face the driver, this makes your palm flat on the grenade and your fingers on the handle, much more comfortable.

Thanks for all the remarks guys! I didn't really have to tap anything. Since it was such a tight squeeze, I was able to put some glue in the hole and pop that bad boy on. Now with the way I have it now, it doesn't feel too bad at all. I drive 60 miles a day. However, I think it would feel much better if it was a t-handle type setup. I am going to try that this weekend.

wwii...I'm going to try to paint the gernade this weekend. So it should look like this correct?


Though, I've seen most pineapples (what I have) look like this:

i see you live in New Jersey .remember to keep your old shift knob for inspection day.if you replace the factory shift knob with the pattern on the knob then you have to have the pattern displayed someplace.you might be able to find a sticker in an auto parts store then just stick it on the dash in plain view

the WWII type is the lower picture..the "pineapple" type. The baseball type came out later but that yellow band it has..you can put that on the pineapple one...your choice.

similiar to this...(someone did their own painting)

I put a spring under the spoon on mine after I painted mine. You should have seen my Brothers face when he pulled the pin and the spoon flew off as I hit the dirt behind the truck. Priceless. Had it been a live round he would have been dead, he froze, staring at it holding it in a death grip, eyes wide. He now treats all of my guns as loaded and "acutriments" as live warshot.
