The other thing I had to do to look factory was to build up the boot right below the knob's ring. If you just tie-wrap the boot to the shaft, it'd look like crap. And also the tie-wraps' 'heads' would look like crap, so had to install them backwards, which required to do cutouts on the tape I had to wrap around the shaft to bring the thickness to the ring's diameter. Hard to explain, but when you're there, you'll know what I'm talking about. Drives and feels MUCH better, and also look much better IMO. Hope this helps.
