    making a new shift knob

    So, since SAAB is Swedish, I thought it would be fitting to make a reindeer antler shift knob with some younger futhark runes carved in it (as seen here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BXUXUXsB...-by=frogbear02 ) especially since most after market knobs look cheesy and/or stupid, but i kinda ran into a little problem.. seeing as how its a six speed, thus has the thing you pull up to put it in reverse, and there is not just a simple threaded pole sticking up after the knob comes off which would allow me to just use a nut inside the antler as you would with most manual cars (i assume since I cant get the stock knob off)...how can i attach this shift knob I made, while still retaining the reverse boot thing? (i also cant figure out if i have to take the whole shifter assembly out to remove the stock knob, but im sure there are already posts on that) any ideas or links or what not shall help a lot, thanks! (Some dimentions, the new knob is 23 cm (9 inches) long though i may shorten it since its kinda too long, and 3 cm thick round at the base (or about 1 inch) is that too thin?

    Looked at one once. Not absolutely positive, but pretty sure the cap pops off the top of the knob to get to the screw.
