Yes, I was actually! Thanks to this site and some great advice, I was able to repair the boot by basically wrapping it in black, Scotch electrical tape. It really worked quite nicely as crude as it may sound. It looks very nice. The post is somewhere else on the site. I think it's in the tech section. Alot of people told me where to buy the boot for a very decent cost. Check it out! Thank you and by the way, welcome to the site.
