Questions: How long did it take to do that? Is it a lot of work? How much did it all cost you? Could I do that to my base model 98 Trep (currently has not leather boot)?

My 98 (no autostick) did not come with a leather boot. It was one of the first 98's made. When did they start adding the leather boot as standard equipment. 99?
Would it be possible to order the boot and install it on my 98 Trep, or do I have to also order the trim around the shifter too?

They started the leather boot near the end of 99.

Yes you can get one (as I have ordered), but you do need the whole cover to the center console (including the ashtray and cigarette lighter). The opening for the leather one has to be bigger so the leather can move. Plus the fact that the plastic disk assembly is melted to that piece anyways.

I cost me $112 for that complete piece.

artifex, do you have autostick or not? the autostick shifter in the 1st gen (see my pic if you need to reference) is identical to the 2nd gen, the only thing that's different is that the console that it's mounted on is different. if you could find the leather piece from a 2nd gen it probably wouldn't be that hard to rig the leather boot in place of the plastic things. if you don't have autostick i have no idea because i've never seen another 1st gen (sans autostick) except in pictures. if i can find a leather boot i plan to investigate this... ;)
