Thanks for the feedback.
Well with driving with the knob on there vs last night being parked rowing throgh the gears. I can say its much better than stock knob is

I'm debating my next knob already. I'm thinking a custom piston... With offset stripes and maybe a Sonic head etched in... maybe in blue with green highlights ;)

This would be neat. Its a Mustang part that also fits the Fiesta, so maybe it works for the Focus..?

Blox 490g Shift Knob

I also posted under the "How to remove shift knob" but thought I'd create a new one just incase people are curious about Blox knobs. The original packaging came with the knob and a nut that is supposed to screw into the thread and hold the knob in place.

Unfortunately I was not able to get the Knob to go on without the boot being extremely tight when using the knob. So instead I slid two 3/8 in grommets down to the end of where the thread stops. Then I Dremel sanded a 3/8 washer to fit over the thread and rest on top of the grommet (this allowed the knob to screw all the way down and allowed the boot to be loose).

Then I placed the boot on over the washer and screwed the knob on. The grommets hold the washer in place and the washer prevents the boot from slipping down the stick. All in all it took a few hours but I got a really good comfortable fit. Any questions or other solutions feel free to post here

Merged with the older "show your knob" thread

Looks good though.

Got an early B-day present. The Steeda STS feels so much nicer with a weighted knob.
