loose shift boot w/aftermarket knob

hey guys im a new prelude owner, and new to this forum.

i just installed my forbidden shortshifter along with a greddy heavy knob. My shift boot is just kinda doing its own thing, and i suspect because of the silver thing the stock knob clipped to. is there a way to take it off and have the boot look normal without putting the stock knob in?

thanks

Re: loose shift boot w/aftermarket knob

buy an aftermarket boot as well.

or you can install a rubber ring around the shaft of the shifter and then slide the console back over top of it. that should keep the boot from falling.

either way the stock boot looks terrible with an aftermarket knob.

Re: loose shift boot w/aftermarket knob

I can definately vouch for Redline. I have a leather shift boot and ebrake boot with red stitching. It's good quality stuff. What I did to make the boot meet the shift knob was simple. I bought a DC2 Type R shift knob, took off the black ring that came on it, placed it in the Redline boot, and used rubber bands to make it stay up. Reeeal easy.
