Brass Knuckles can be sold as both paper weights and belt buckles. You can get them at the swap meet or online. My buddy had the same problem here in Vegas with his suicide shifter being knuckles. So make sure he welds them on. Another cool thing I was thinking about doing is making the door handles on my Studebaker from knuckles. Feel free to steal that idea though. I'd like to see it done.

now that is a good one.... i can see it now... someone steals your ride, then cuts his hand on your turn signal while trying to maintain a low profile from the police...
crashes your ride, then sues you because you made a dangerous situation in your car... on top of being arrested.

Here's an idea for a shift knob, the Army/Navy surplus store in my area carries disarmed hand grenades. Tap a hole in the bottom and thread it onto a shifter and you have something unique. Plus I just think it would be cool to have a hand grenade as a shifter.

Most of them are already tapped out and it is a very good idea. We are currently working on a suicide shifter grenade handle in which the safety lever and striker spring will control the clutch. We hope it works.

you can buy brass nuckles from almost any smoke shop.

i have welded my own pair of brass nuckles that i bought from a smoke shop for 20$ and just welded them on. The only hard part about this, is if your car is a automatic, most cars have a lock button on the side or top.

I must thank "CWB Customs" for digging up a 4 years old thread
I found a good site (still working ) about brass knuckle
kickers.
