Ed, my BN7 side shift had a leather shift boot when I bought the car.  It was a very simple cone of 4 triangular pieces.  The bottom skirt was sufficiently broad that it simply sat under the carpet and came through the trimmed hole in the carpet.  Any upholstery shop could make you one.  Of course, there was also the rubber boot that seals between the cup and the tunnel.

Does anyone know of a source for a leather or vinyl shift boot for a BT7 side shift?

Got some info from Mike, indirectly (thanks Tadek!):


"Bob:  Yes, I’m running way behind. I do have yours and six other non-adjustable hub orders lined up for the riveting. One at a time. I have around 30 wheels backlog just in finishing and shipping.  It was worse, but I did make a lot of progress toward reducing it during the summer months. I have another 40-ish wheels to make before year end. I suspect I’ll be late with those too. Been working most weekends and some evenings when I have the energy. Recently I did lose some time sick (reaction to meds) followed immediately by a week down preparing for the hurricane and then un-preparing. Please be patient with me a bit longer and I promise a very beautiful wheel.

I thought Mike had retired, but apparently not.
