New Gear Boot

Looks good. I had the boot sent to me, and I did the installation myself. Bit of mucking around to fit the original foam (except the fat foam 'chunk', that's easy) it's original place but otherwise a relatively simple job. I didn't glue it down or do anything permanently binding in case I need to muck with it later on.

2nd pic to show the colour difference. Not huge, the difference is more noticable in natural sunlight where the blue of the gear knob shows it's slightly metallic nature. But seeing as the blue used in the T-Series trim isn't exactly the same, I'm not complaining - I'd like to use this same blue leather for my custom trim I'm in the process of designing.

Looks good. I got mine done too on my EL, and the console lid which had a cigerette burn in it (not me). I had a leather boot on my XR6 ute also.. and it was just one from a Momo one I got from Autotek. cuz a guy who works there lives in my street. It worked well. had elastic bottom and a leather lace at top.

This one is an Momo/Autotek custom jobbie, since the universal's don't fit the AU's well. I asked for a specific leather (perforated blue, closest to the other blue) and they've reproduced the original boot's size, and holes for easy installation.

can i ask what was the price for the boot, dont remember what it cost me. and what did they charge for modifying it. i got my boot/console lid for $40. Makes a big difference to the interior's look. Only thing I would like better.. is the EL-GT's material.. same stuff that make Akubra's outa.. rabbit fur?? LOL i dont know.

$120 with freight, same price as Kell though I think hers was fitted? She mentioned going out to Rhodes to get it.

I thought of doing the console lid as well, seena few AU's with matching gear boot/lid material.

That EL GT trim stuff was different aye - dunno about which animal though, haha.
