just changed my clubby to a manual and could not stand the look of the rubber gear boot so went to super cheap bought a $30 leather surround and put it in the result (IMO) look 10 million times better for only a couple of minutes of playing around

Cheers Doug

Nope - my VR II Exec has the industrial rubber, too. It's on my to-fix list...

I guess it depends on your style :) I personally prefer the standard boot. 100x better than anything else!!

Hi Mort

Nah, yer on yer own with that opinion. The rubber one looks like it came from a Camira. Definitely not classy enough for your Stato.:hit:

To the OP, you need a new camera phone. Those photos are shithouse.....:yeah:

Look at it this way morton, you could save some more weight by using cloth over that big piece of rubber.

lol 50LTRv8, you can only take weight saving so far :p I hate the look of 90% of cloth/leather boots people end up making themselves. I like old styles :)

Seeker, the knob was a random one I found at some auto parts store :p Apparently it was a special order that someone then didn't want. Can't remember what brand! It's matt leather with brushed metal. I love it :)
