Shifter Boot

I need a little help. Has anyone replaced their shifter boot? My '84's was hard and brittle and I need to replace it. I lookes at almost all of the links on the Cabby site and no luck. Anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks

Ebay, wrecking yards.... so places have generic leather/pleather replacements.

Yeah, EBay lists some but when you go to them they say "not compatable" So I guess it will be the junk yard

Be sure to also check out redline goods - http://www.redlinegoods.com/xmasholidaysale.php

I've used them to replace the boots on the sifters and the ebrake covers.
