Default Boot suggestion

Hey all,

Looking for a good boot suggestion for a Hurst Comp shifter. We took the shift and cut it, and now it's similar to a short throw shifter...it has that big ugly rubber boot that comes with it I think, I'm looking for something that blends in a little more.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I used the leather boot that Virginia Mustangs sells along with the 65 chrome and black bezel, the boot has the same hole pattern as the bezel and mounts direct to the trans tunnel with the existing holes for the stock shifter bezel either auto or manual.

Thanks for the great suggestion. Is this the one you're talking about?

+1 on the leather boot. I put on two different rubber boots after switching to a toploader with a Hurst shifter, and both of 'em cracked in a couple of years. Went with the leather boot, and love it. It's a pain changing out those boots with a full-length console in place!

That does look great. Did you use the stock hardware to screw it down?
