You could try one in your console...but no promises that it would work with the older style. You might be able to find something on ebay.

Ok, I'm on the third prototype from George and still not feeling it. Looking at another source on ebay for the shift boot and possibly the console lid/arm rest. They use a different stitching technique that looks better.

Biggest problem is the ebrake though...and it stems from the fact that the swing on the lever creates too much extra material. So I'm working with an old junkyard boot from a Saturn or something and getting it to work. It looks better by letting the extra material slide back in the slot when the ebrake is disengaged. Mounting that way takes some fab though.

And I still need a measurement from the top of the console plate to the bottom of the stock shift knob on a stock shift arm. My measurement is 5", but I'd like to know the stock as well to see if it is the same.
