Hey guys. I am a bit of a novice but looking to replace this tired worn thing. Any advice on the best way to do this/ where to source new cover? 

 

Thanks! 

 

note: Looks like the whole centre console could do with a replacement haha XD

Pretty much every Z car part supplier out there sells these in some form and there are a lot on ebay too.  Google is your friend on this one.  A lot of us on here have at one time or another ordered parts from these guys:

It looks like your car is missing the hand brake boot too. Some suppliers sell the gear lever and handbrake boots together. Both boots can be found in vinyl (as original) or leather.

Just an FYI I wouldn't turf the console it can be repaired. NOS ones are getting super expensive too.

Dashboard restoration shops can repair them to a very high standard.

Hi,

 

Before you order a new boot, I would make sure the retaining clips are OK and can be reused.

Would be a shame to order a boot then find that you will need the clips as well.

 

Cheers
