Re: rubber boots

Only the earliest left hand brake cars used a boot on the brake lever. You should get a current copy of the Judging Standards and Restoration Guidelines if you want to be correct for judging.

Re: I might have scam!

Just don’t send the item until funds clear. Check, money order, PayPal, other online payment service etc. There are many trusted payment services today: PayPal, Cahapp, Zelle, just to name a few.
