Manual Gear Shift Gaiter

Post by sideshowbob » Tue Aug 24, 2021 7:05 pm

Looking for final parts for auto to manual gearbox conversion.

Does anyone have a spare leather gaiter, preferably grey or black, but a light colour would be OK as I can re dye it.

Also could do with the support frame that holds gaiter in the transmission tunnel.

Ever hopeful.

I have in the US if you have no other options there. I think in black also but I have to make sure. Series 2 car, correct?

Photos would be useless as the leather is extremely dry and has stretched badly at the seam. Probably just good for a pattern and the intact plastic frame. I do have some pieces of black leather harvested from BMWs that I can send along. The 88/89 used “French Stitch” at the seams and that requires special sewing machines. Wish I could help you more.
