Looking for a new shift boot to complete your interior and don't want the universal fit ones...go to Redline Goods

Redline Goods has been awesome to me. I emailed him a while ago because I thought a custom boot would be cool, and Metros/Swifts weren't listed. So, he offered to ship me a boot in exchange for the rubber boot and an installation write-up. (Those of you with newer Swifts in other markets could do the same...hint hint).

The company is located in Poland, however they have excellent turnaround time and are very eager to make the boot exactly how you want it. He went to the trouble of color matching a sample so I could have purple thread (which is not usually offered).

(I will add a pic of my new boot in a couple days...)

As a special deal, I can offer you 5% off your purchase...use the links in this post! :-) (under the pics because I am not clever enough to make the pics links in BBCode) :-P

I looked, and they still don't list the Swift, Firefly, Sprint, Metro, and/or Cultus.

i don't see suzuki in the list
not to get off topic but i made my own
took the rubber out
took the console peice out thats around the shifter
unscrewed the 2 parts together
dropped in leather one i got from a gen2 talon i think i had to trim it a bit and i used some string to hold it in place
screwed the 2 peices back together and haven't had a problem with it moving at all
put on a mazda 626 shifter knob looks sweet
dont know if its tall enough for a stock shifter, i have a integra short shifter installed.

Yeah, I still have to do the write up for installation and installed pics before they post it as available, but if you email them I'm sure that the can get you set up!! :-)

I am going to try to get the write up and pics today...

I did a test fit in a 97 hatchback, and I will have to discuss a couple adjustments that need to be made, but it is perfect for what I want in my car. I will have an aftermarket shifter knob...like I said, this was a test fit and so I could take pics to make my direction sheet.

Hey thats pretty nice! $49 is not bad depending on how much they want for shipping. Any ideas what they charge to ship to the US ?

also can they do other colors? I want leather but I want a BRIGHT blue.

Very cool. Now I want one!

Yes, they can do other colors! Whatever you want! Just contact them and they are willing to help you. I had them do purple stitching which they didn't offer.

As far as shipping, I am not sure, they seemed pretty reasonable though. I think I paid $10 to ship a boot and the plastic frame to them... (my situation was different cause I was the first person to request a metro boot!)
