Using your drill and a 3/8" drill bit (or a bit that is the same width of the existing cap) and make a hole 3/4 through the die.

I recently made a set of these for my car. Because of the forces at work at highway speeds, I went with a really strong 2-part epoxy to bond the stem cap to the inside of the dice. Since I made them, I have Auto-Crossed my car on a closed track at speeds of 120+mp/h and they are still there.

Thats Great, Im going to make one straight away (its a rainy day...) Can you make other versions eg. bullet instead of dice???

Sure you could, anything that you can drill into should work fine.

it didn't work, the drill wouldn't cut through the dice, in stead it wander over the surface untice the dice cracked in half.
