No, use the Search function. It makes it a little easier.

It doesn't look difficult at all. The boot is simply glued onto the plastic part. The idea would be to:

Remove the existing boot or get another one from a junkyard <--- my recommendation
Undo the stitches so you end up with two flat pieces of material
Trace pieces onto material of choice
Sew 'em up
Glue onto plastic piece

I PM'd him this:

Here are some quick directions:

Step One: Remove the old boot by pulling it off the console assembly. It'* only glued and stapled (once). If you don't care about the old boot, just cut it off.


Step Two: Clean off all the old adhesive.


Step Three: Glue the new boot in place. Super Glue worked REALLY well for me. It bonds to the plastic/leather pretty good and seems to be holding up pretty well so far!

It'* tougher with the 2k+ boot in the 92-99 cars. The boot comes up around the base of the T handle 2k shifter, and ends up being ALMOST too short to reach all the way to the bottom. I really should make a new boot for mine, or convince Randman to make me one
