I mean they did send back the OEM boot but they had to remove the stitches to make a pattern for the new one.I should mention the knob /shifter assembly does not have the boot on it.
It was removed by the ebay leather vendor to make a pattern for their new online version.
i understand thats not desirable for some hence the “free” offer. The knob and shaft are one piece and are unmolested.
My apologies as i got sidelined with some work fires last night and totally forgot to get pictures. Will try again tonight.
