Color Matched Shift/Ebrake boot.

Ok people I PM'd Andy about the feasability of this project and was told it would be possible. The catch is he would need at least 5 people/per color to justify the cost of purchasing the material. I would like to open this thread as a feeler for who would be interested in buying something like this. For the purposes of this post what color you would like the boot to be matched with.

I will then add your name to the list below with all interior colors to give Andy an idea of whether he wants to move forward with it or not. NOTE: The color can be matched OR the grain...he said probably not both). I assume this to mean that it will not come in the same grain as Boston Leather, but I have not verified as of typing this. I will get with Andy and update the thread when I get an answer. Thanks peeps!:biggrin:

Just to clarify...it would have to be 5 sets of ONE color for him to justify doing a set for us...

NO TAKERS???

Hmm it COULD work, I'd really have to see a sample installed.

I'd consider it if the cost were right. Coral would be my choice.

I am guessing the price would be in the range of $200 according to the website. (due to using a brandnew plastic ring that is connected to the boot as well...instead of reusing the old one).

If we dont get five people for a certain color then it will NOT go down.....I want to color match but I dont want to pay upwards of $600 for the material for him to do just one....so the more the merrier....
