Any pics or schems how look and where to place some gasket preventing getting hot gear stick?

Number of part is wellcome:)

Difficulity of placing?

It's normal that the gear stick gets warm, since there is hot water running under it (to the radiator).

Nothing to worry about !

Yes that's right.

The only area you have left appeasr to be the outer pieces, with one of the ribs left, the rest having fallen inside the schassis over time.

Mine is worse than yours, I had no ribs left, only part of the outer lip, so I am going to have to replace it and will probably notice quite a difference. I guess it will also reuce the petrol fumes I'm experiencing in the cabin as well (I have new breather pipes onthe car, before anybody suggests they may be at fault-they were falling apart).

And the price from SJ is...LOWER GEAR LEVER GAITER (RUBBER) B082F4114F EACH 23.97

don't waste your time/money replacing it with another rubber boot that will rot again.. I have one of these:

works great and it adds 3 or 4 horsepower because its made of nomex and the guy selling it says its a "RACEING" part lol.. all kidding aside its a real asset especially now that the weather is starting to really warm up.
