Question Whats missing here?!

I'm trying to make my car as stock as possible.
The previous owner did the most unloving things to this car.
Slowly i'm getting there but i'm stuck on my shifter now.
Does the shifter boot screw on to the shifter itself?
The stock shifter i have has a thread on the end.
But the current boot i have doesn't.
Plus i can't figure out how the leather wrapping gets stuck in the boot, as in the stock configuration.
Here is a picture of what i got.
(IE only)

Thanks

The shifter boot should slide onto where I have indicated. However, it may be a custom shifter boot which in case you will have to show us a picture.

The stock knob threads onto the shift handle with loctite. Then your boot is pulled up over the knob letting you have access to the "under side" of the boot, once you have it turned inside out with the collar of the boot in place on the knob, you need to thread a new ziptie through the boot around the knob and tighten it down and clip off the slack.
