Use an old pair of blue jean shorts. Turn them upside-down and put them on over the sticks. Tie-wrap the legs closed around the sticks. Tuck the waist part under the opening in the carpet.:D

Sorry, I couldn't help it.

It would be hilarious. It would look like a skinny midget with funny shoes was working on your tranny.:D

Seriously though, a buddy of mine made a shifer boot out of old jeans on his Jeep. Works good. It's tough, made to be moved around and even kept the wind and fumes out. I'd like to see the skinny midget setup.:cool:

yah, um. i dont think jerry got the joke here. :banana: :confused: btw: i dont really need to buy some kit someone makes. the stock boots work fine. i just didnt throw them on in the 5 minutes it took to jump in the car and hit the dirt after the conversion.
