Sure, just drop by AutoZone or similiar store. You can pick up an automatic shifter for about $25 - $30.

the round disk that has the shift pattern on it should come out revealing a nut. its gonna be tight. i used a very small straight blade screw driver to get the one off of my 05. they use the same tranny so it should be the same.

^^^^did that just thread right on, or did you have to put some sort of sleeve with the right threads in it? I was looking at doing a beer tap as well, and it seems like I remember someone saying that they just threaded right on.

I use a golf ball for my shift knob. I just drilled a hole in it that was a little smaller than the threads and then twisted it on there. Its quite comfy.

I drilled a pool ball a little smaller than the shaft and just screwed it on. Fits tight and the size of the ball makes it great for shifting. Drilling the ball on the drill press was easier than i expected.

Heres mine.
Its the only one like it I've seen so its pretty original. Looks pretty sweet too. The only downside is he faces down towards the center console so hes hard to see.

seems like a big chunk of cast iron on the end of your shift leaver would put alot of excess wear on your synchros. Like they say you shouldnt hold the shift knob when your just cruisin along because of your arm weight

I'm not trying to toot my own horn but *honk - honk*... I made my shifter knob last year from my old Big Bertha Driver. I tried the golf ball thing but it looked way too small on my shifter so I went with my old driver. I finally had to retire the Big Bertha once I got my new hybrid. Enjoy~
