Even with the 'blacker' leather, I like the ZHP much better, even before the benefits of how much better it feels and looks . And the boot job I did (same diameter as ring) looks perfect . Oh, and the shift pattern on the stock knob looks a million times better than the ZHP one, even in daylight; another reason to do the transplant.

Anyway, the lower pics are after removing the 'posts' at 12 and 6 o'clock positions, and where the hole ends up if drilled at my chosen location, which is the best one IMO. Hope this helps gang.

What did you do to get the boot to match the diameter of the ring? It looks great!
