What I found with the boot I have now is that the leather was a bit thicker than the stock fake leather, so I couldn't get the "snap loop" in there and get it to snap onto the bottom of the shift knob. With the thicker leather, the hole that was left in the middle of the snap loop was just too small to snap onto the bottom of the knob.

So, superhawk, I take it since yours is installed that you didn't have any problems with that? Was it a cast iron beeotch to get the boot snapped onto the bottom of the knob, or did it fit like stock?
