Wanted: E30 Gear Shift Boot Frame

I just bought an new leather gear shift boot and now realize that I need to attach it to a frame. I'd prefer not to detach the frame from my current vinyl one incase I butcher it up.

I do not care for the condition of the boot cover itself as I will only need the frame. The frame (plastic) I want shouldn't be cracked or broken in any way.

Contact me if you have one and how much (or how little ) you want for it.


cheers

Someone has to have an old shift boot sitting around waiting for an afterlife.

It's just the little plastic frame that attaches the vinyl or leather gear shift boot to the centre console all manual transmission cars have them.

The pic outlines the part the boot is typically glued or mended to the frame part.

Thanks for offering to custom manufacture I will keep you in mind if I ever need something made.

cheers
