I was lucky enough to get one of the custom knobs from Rasch. Looks great, save for the leather boot I also go from a 1g Eclipse...

...that isn't big enough to fit.

Caveat emptor, right?

So now I'm wondering, what does fit?

in for this also. I have a TEL one, doesnt fit well and isn't in great condition... but does look better than the OE one.


they have shift boots for cheap on eBay. I have bought 2 for other cars that where nice. one for my crx and one for my 99 civic. civic one was a direct replacement. nice leather with red stitch. but both those cars are way more popular for crap like that...

Got one off of eBay for a 3KGT and modified it to fit by punching new holes for it to fit over the old shifter base. looks great and was easy to do.

3KGT, eh? This is what I'm looking for. One off another car that someone has already used and can say works OK.

I'll look into it.

A short shifter fits with the TEL shifter boot just fine, if thats in plans for the future.

If it works, you learn something. If it breaks, you learn even more.

As it turns out, vr6eater may have enough fabric for one... Fingers crossed and thanks for the recommendation!
