Any idea where I can get them locally? Or is it import only as previously mentioned Sean ?

Here you are , good discount price for the real thing.

Or you can run the ones you got till they die, which could be 20 years from now, only by torquing the bolts with a bit of loctite thread loc.

Just remember to jack the back end up to get both wheels off the ground BEFORE fitting the clamps on your booths,

or they will tear on the 1st speed bump, this happens to the OEM booths as well.

Freddie, just for interest, I bought some OEM boots from VW Classic Parts (Part number 211 598 201) but they are just later productions.
The ones that came with the Lobro (GKN Automotive) sets were just as good if not better.
Check with Sean where he buys the Lobro ones local. To give you an indication, I paid 106 Euros for the Lobro kits when I imported them,
but heard afterwards one can get them local.
