Diy Shift Boot Collar/Adapter For $2.50

For anyone who's running a custom shift boot or any non-oem boot an can't find a collar that fits flush. Not being able to find one was driving me nuts as I assume many of you lol. I decided to come up with my own since I couldn't seem to find any I liked (Yes I am 100% sure some company out there makes a collar similar to this and maybe with some more browsing i could have found it but whatever I couldn't at the moment and like I said before it only cost me $2.50 to make ). I recently posted a few pics on facebook and many of yous showed intrest so here goes the diy on how to make one for yourself hope this helps. If you manage to refine the design drop a picture below id love to see your versions

ShiftBoot Collar-> http://s36.photobucket.com/user/iLLESTDan/library/ <-ShiftBoot Collar

Supplies Needed:
- 1 Vitamin Water Bottle
- 1 Coke Bottle
- Utility Knife/Box Cutter
- Scissors
- Gorilla glue or Equivalent
- Sand Paper Any Grit 600 and over but under 1000 (For Painting Prep)
-Choice of Paint I used Black Krylon Fusion

I had all this laying around minus the two bottles thus me only spending $2.50 on two drinks lol

Before painting i recomend thoroghly wet sanding with any paper from grit 600-1000 then Apply 4-5 even coats of paint.

Hope this helps!!

Any questions just ask!

Looks good. What i did was to put a zip tie under the boot to make the boot always together with the knob.

I just used a zip tie and some electrical tape. I'll probably get an adapter when I get a better shift knob and boot.
