gear knob idea

i have been thinking about using a 9 ball pool ball to replace my gear knob.

i havent any ideas though where i could get hold of another genuine unit to use as a pattern.

the pool ball im sure could be milled and machined to accommodate the lift up reverse. ??

any ideas....

i am looking at replacing my knob as it has been used a lot and its looking a bit worn. i dont need to lift my knob to go back so will that knob be ok for me still as it is a nice looking knob, my only concern is that as my knob gets a fair bit of use do u think it may lose its shine?

iv seen it done before with the pool ball, looked totally crap, tacky. i would not bother, just get a nice alloy one momo or something similar.
