New shifter and ebrake boot from Redline

My old boots finally had to be replaced because the stitching was coming loose. I ordered both from https://www.redlinegoods.com in black with orange stitching. The quality was awesome. Price was good too because I got a discount for my first order and I will get 10% off of anything else I order in the next year. Installation was easy for the eboot but a little tougher for the shift boot because the hole in the console is smaller than stock because of the leather cover on the console. I cut a little bit out of the ring the boot is glue to and it fit nicely. If you have a painted or wrapped console it would be a snap to install it. I am extremely happy with the boots! See the pictures.

That looks gorgeous!! Nice job.

Where’s the ebrake handle and shifter knob from? I love that carbon look!

I am not sure where the shift knob came from, found it in a pile of stuff. The ebrake handle is the stock handle with a carbon fiber wrap. I am pretty happy with the way it came out. I have some spare wrap. PM me your address and I will send you a piece if you want...

Looks great. Shift knob looks like the Reverie knob.

Yes, now that I see the Reverie pictures, I would have to say that is where it came from. The bottom looks exactly the same.
As far as a full CF ebrake handle, I would think it would have to have an aluminum center, like the shift knob, for rigidity and attachment. Great idea if anyone is so inclined. It is one of the few items I have not seen before and that is why I did the wrap.
