Hey, I’m all for showing some ingenuity, but I sure wouldn’t want to be behind you on the highway when the tape let’s go and BB’s start dropping under your car. It may not play out that dramatically, but still, there is a risk…I’m sure you could find something a little safer at Home Depot that will create the same effect. Something that you can use a worm clamp with.
went to hunting store and bought $5 box of zinc coated lead LARGE bb's, 2000#, took a pc of clear shipping tape and placed it sticky side up, poured as many bbs that would stick to tape,maybe 100, took another pc of tape and sanwiched the bbs between tape. then i carefully pried plastic shifter boot housing up w flat screwdriver from center of side facing the car rear. lift up and 2 tabs at other end of housing will lift out, now invert the boot snd expose the shft, now wrap tape of bbs around the shaft at end closest to knob and secure w duct tape, install boot and voila now you have shifter w more pos action/crisper shifts,, also have 1900 bbs left to give to son so he can terrorize neighborhood wildlife!! enjoy

Re: $5 mod.--great results
You guys are missing the obvious potential for awesomeness here:
If you were to engage in a high speed car chase with henchmen from an evil organization firing rockets at you, the heat from the nearby explosions would melt the tape, spraying the BBs out behind you. Then the pursuers cars would flip over and smash into strategically placed parked vehicles and explode into a fireball, at which point you could look over your shoulder and smugly say, "No tailgating", then drive to their girlfriends house and have sex with them while drinking a martini.
