       Hi DeWitt and others,

            Well unfortunately, it wasn't me who knew of a rebuilder in Denver.
Just got a post from a lister who suggested using boots from a Porsche 944. 
Apparently, these c.v. boots work for the 4000 q prop shaft. I just need to find
me a 4000 q and look at the boots to see if they're the same. Anyone know?
