Just thought that i'd show this off to you guys...even if my car isnt running still, I thought to myself why not fix the lil' shyt up.~
So, i took the old stock SHYT boot which had many tears in it and made my own Shift Boot.
It took me a while to get my stitch to come out perfectly strait, Crooked stitches does not cut it...I was a bit jittery from REDBULL!
MANY TRIAL AND ERRORS`-
for now i will be making myself a few more SHIFT BOOTS with the same fabric but with red stitching and white stitching and blue stitching..
im gna do white stitching first, since it is the color of my car~, I already know its going to look Awesome~!
Fabric- Perforated Leather[black] with black stitching-
b.t.w , the perforated leather is high grade italian cow hyde from Italy with no hormones, and grown and raised on a farm with no picket fences for damaged hydes~ +2 thought i would add that since im a Broker for a few Raw Hyde Distributors and i know my leather
the leather is amazing~ it really is smooth like butter....
heres a few pics.
Gotta snip a few threads~
and if you see the metal ring on the top of the opening of the shift boot, its a bit crooked since i was doing it alone and had noone to hold it for me....but this is only a prototype~ no biggie with the ring
next one will be better! and definitley better pics...

and yeaa i was tryin to figure out a different trim for the boot opening...so far i got a few different size rings im trying to depress on the other shift boots i have, so far i have one that fits perfectly around the shift rod, so its can move up or down, but.... the only problem is, ITS GOLD......Waffle! looks tooo weird~ but ill be back with a better one for sure.
