How to: custom shifter boot
Last Updated: Feb 24, 2015
I thought i would make a thread about the shifter boot i made but although its really easy i wanted to give people ideas.
So first off go to your local fabric store(i went to Joann's) and pick out a cool fabric that you like. I chose flannel fabric with a (crosshatch?) pattern.
Then on your way home pick up a 24oz monster or rockstar and pound it cause you need the cap. Also hit the hardware store and get a rubber stopper. The ones that look like a cork that is just big enough to snap into the cap.
So drill a hole in the cap and rubber stopper big enough that it will slide down your shifter and this is how it will look but it will be snapped together.

Well the pics are in the wrong order but you get the point.
Now dont cut your fabric to fit. I made that mistake and almost didnt have enough fabric to finish and i had a yard. Lay the fabric over the upsidown center console and push the fabric through about how much you think you will need to make it saggy but not to saggy. You might have to guess and check a couple times to get it right. Then put in the screws!
Interesting fabric choice, part of your heritage? I'm looking forward to seeing this installed.
Snip a tiny hole in the fabric in the middle which is completely guessing so get this right the first time haha.
Then hot glue the corners of the fabric to the underside of the center console because theres only 8 screws so the corners are free.
Lastly slide on the rubber stopper then the center console then the monster cap and snap it together!
Another thing i have to add is i have a single cab so the stock boot is smaller so i just left it and put the boot under it so the boot is still there for sound deadening purposes.
Not part of my heritage i have a red B and I dont know it just kinda matched haha
