|Choosing Colours for your custom knob.
Custom knobs can be either all one colour, or a base colour (see pic, colour 1), with a top thin layer (see pic, colour 2). The thin colour layer allows you to choose a main base colour you prefer for your cars interior, while setting the spider against a background you prefer to either make it stand out or hide it. Spiders generally have brown to black abdomens, with black legs and thorax. If you want the spider to stand out it pays to go for brighter colours, such as yellow, white, red etc. Dark colours such as black, blue, purple etc tend to camouflage the spider.
|Choosing the correct thread for your custom knob. The safest way to find the correct thread is to either buy some nuts from your local hardware to find which one fits onto your gear stick or take your existing knob into a hardware and find a bolt that will easily screw into it. Generally speaking most modern cars will be metric, either 10Mx1.25, or 12Mx1.25. Older Australian cars and American cars might be AF, not metric, so look for sizes around 1/2" or so. You need to find the correct size thread so your custom knob will thread on easily. An ill fitting thread could potentially damage the knob if excessive force is used to screw it on.|
