Looking for A/C knob '95 D 90

Been through the wringer looking for this air conditioner knob on a 1995 D 90. Anyone know of a part number or where to find? I have the knob, but it's deteriorated. I would epoxy the darn thing on there but the second I do that my A/C will probably break and I'll have to pull the whole dash off with a forklift. I'm almost ready to carve one out of wood or get one of my design buddies to plastic injection mold this SOB.

The A/C unit:

The knob:

I had a customer's D90 in recently with 1 knob missing. I wasn't able to find an identical replacement, but did source a aluminum-over-plastic knob that fit the stem.
They are larger in diameter and aluminum instead of black, and I had to order 12 to get a minimum order amount, so I'd be glad to send you a pair.
I'll post a pic when I get out to the shop.

a/c knob

Awesome! Thanks Trevor! I look forward to the pic and will make it well worth your while if it looks like the original part is going to be impossible to find, which is likely going to be the case.

Coincidentally, I see a lot of photos of Defenders with this A/C unit with the knob missing. Strangely, the other of the two knobs always seems intact.
