Very helpful. I finally man up and decided to do this myself. Not too hard, just have to be very patient and watch what you're doing. I didn't cut the factory knob off though, just grind it down so the bolt can be longer.
I sent my bolt out to have it redone after a certain well known smith did a "professional" install. the bolt knob kept falling off, and it looked terrible. i was not impressed. I spoke to Matt (monteboy84 on here) and he re-did it using the tacops kit.
He also cerakoted after finishing up the knob install. check out how it turned out. I prefer the tacops. much nicer and looks a lot better. a lot sturdier too.
