Firewall column boot

How is the best way to replace the firewall column boot WITHOUT splitting it? Non tilt auto column on 71. Can it be stretched enough to go over the shifter arm?

Thanks, Lynn

Maybe if you heated it, but I don't think I would try it unless you had a couple of them....

Re: Firewall column boot

Member TBONE1964 builds and sells columns so he does it all the time, you could PM him if you don't sort it out.

I know mine was stretchy enough to make it, but they could tear, I'd hate to be wrong.
