Well, I've been messing with more than the leather shift boot. I bought a Gentex rear view mirror (temp, auto dim, compass, ice warning) last winter and finally got around to tackling this. I saw some of the other mounting methods created by EOC members and they looked good but I wanted something that looked factory and didn't cut up part of the old mirror. After a lot of pondering and four hours of engineering, making parts, and testing it is done:

If a couple of people are interested in doing this I'll take apart and take pictures & create directions. Didn't want to go to all of that if no one is interested.

Search the threads. There are several one offs and custom installations using the OEM mount point in the ceiling. Some of them are quite intricate and look fantastic.
Myself, I took the easy way out. I glued a wedge on the windshield, ran the wires down the "A" post, and called it wonderful. For the left over hole in the ceiling, I glued a clear lens and blue LEDs to the OEM plastic trim piece. I'll try to get a pic up tomorrow.
