    After much frustration with the flush and gripless radio knobs I found an easy solution. Lowes sells grip tape for stairs in the hardware section...simply cut a 3" x 3mm strip with a razor blade (paper-side) and adjust length to fit. It is extremely tactile now....so much so I am going to do the same thing on the AC wheel this weekend.

    Attached is a pic....virtually invisible.

    START AS BLACK RUBBER BUT AFTER PROCESSING THEY ARE BETWEEN DARK GRAY AND LIGHT BLACK..
    Sorry about leaving caps on. I put a slightly coarse texture on them to give them a better grip, which lightens the color, so I really cannot control the color at this time. I am looking into a dye process to offer colors.
