I found the remains of a gearshift gaiter when I started to restore my jeep. Since the beginning of this thread/post I have left this in a jar of MEK thinners to remove the grime and traces of oil etc.
Today, I removed it and left it to dry out, giving it a brush over with a suade brush - like carsten says, it has a greenish tinge which is definately the "smooth" side out, or "face" most noticable where it was sewn together.
Well - it appears I was wrong and the set I posted photos of previously would seem OK - except that I still need to have one made with the third OD lever added!
Oh! What tasks we set ourselves in the pursuit of our hobby!!
