Leather boot on WEVO shifter

I'm done with the "raw" look and want to put my console in and leather boot back on.
Has anyone tried this? I see lots where they stopped at the rubber one.
It looks like the leather might get destroyed when it's removed from the old shifter.
Stock photo.

Found the below photo - people suggested going the custom upholstery route.

Wevo does sell a stock looking stick. I'm not sure if it is compatible to your setup. I have a Wevo shifter and everything looks 100% stock. Shift knob, boot, everything.

Thanks Dmitry. Thatís what I was envisioning. Square peg in a round hole. Lol
Mrbullet. Maybe you have a 901 gear box?

Wevo does a Classic 915 shifter as well, which looks stock.

It looks like a G50 shifter. Mine is the same. My factory boot fit over top, but the G50 shifter is different than the 915, for which I have no boot ideas.
