    Hi Brian,


    I am sure I saw a post here someplace with a link to an ebay auction for an item similar to this one.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MrGas...Q5fAccessories


    I don't know anything about dying rubber, or if it is even possible, maybe this would work...


    I searched for a bit, there are sever styles and sizes, but all black.

    Auto Parts store/speed shop/Junk yard? Boot for a stick shift. My Old Chevy Monza had one that looks like it would fit the bill. So did my Firebird (81 Formula)

    I used the boot off a S10 truck and then painted them grey but the one buddyM suggested is a great deal at $8.00 and its very close to the actual one.with your skills Brian Im surprised ya didnt make a mold and manufacture your own lol.

    Thanks for that info. The one on ebay looks terrific, trouble is that they do not ship overseas.

    Hi Brian,

    also AST (www.airsimtech.com) is providing those. Molded as the real ... a bit pricey but probably something difficult to produce yourself. Unless you use automotive parts.

    I don't know the dimensions you are looking for, but if you look in the hardware stores, they have things similar to this that are used where pipes have to pass through the roofs of houses. I've definitely see round ones, but I can't remember whether there are square ones or not. Worth a look anyway.

    Hi Brian,

    If you don't have any luck getting it locally let me know, I'll pick up the one you want and ship it to you.
