Best method for fixing the gear shift boot ?

Dear folks ,

I would like to ask you about the/your best methods and or solutions and or ideas to fix a new gear shift boot.
Unfortunately almost all pins of my center console for the metallic boot-holder were broken.

Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese obviously has had the same problem, because they fixed the boot-holder of its Montreal-
exibit by drilling 4 holes in the center console for using screws.
Honestly I would like to avoid this non-orginal solution but have not the slightest ideas how to do it.

so any ideas , solutions or pics would be highly appreciated .

Thanks in advance for information

cheers
Bernhard

If you can find Giorgio Penatti, he can sell you a new panel complete with a steel backing plate incorporating gear lever boot mounting. You'll have a much stronger panel than you have now, sure to last another 50 years or more.

I found the best quick solution was for my upholsterer to glue it under the plate. Using contact adhesive.

It looked very professional.

I developed laser cut aluminum panels and use 4 velcro fasteners to fix the gear shift booth in the back. It works fine and is very easy and quick to remove.
