I have a question and I don't mean to jack this thread but if you buy a shift knob, universal or what not, will the boot still stay up? Bc isn't the shift knob what holds the boot up? Sorry if this is retarded sounding haha

well not really a stupid question actually. what i did at first to keep it up is just wrap electric tape right under the shift knob until it's thick enough to give enough friction to hold up the boot. It looks nice, but then with time the tape started to slide, so then i replaced it with a machined hard rubber/plastic hollow cylinder/tube. If you want i can try to find the specs again of ID and OD so it'll fit just right (tight enough so nothing will move)

I did the same thing, except i wrapped the electrical tape, put a little testor's model cement on it and worked the boot back and forth while pulling up. It's been on there for a couple of months, and is still like it should be.
