Gotta love those bobbin toppers on a DBK!!!!!

I put chrome knobs, selector switch, and bobbin toppers on my DBK and it looks killer! Next step is to get that chrome vine done on it and then it will be complete! :-) I cant believe how awesome those bobbin toppers look!!

Where'd you get the bobbin toppers from? I thought Universal Jems did them, but their site is 'undergoing maintenance'

I bought the bobbin toppers from Universal Jems (before the site went into "maintenence mode") lol

I actually ordered the knobs and the chrome selector switch through Universal as well. I will of course be having Jeremy do the chrome vine inlay. I JUST CANT STOP WITH THE CHROME! lol

Actually VWALL had a UV777BK chromed out like this (which is what gave me the idea). Those bobbin toppers just rock!!

The first thing I did to my DBK is slap some chrome knobs on it... I slapped gold knobs on my VWH... it's amazing how much difference the look of the knobs make on the beasts.

Plastic Fender-style knobs just scream "CHEAP" to me.
