shifter arm bushings W201

I've got the transmission out in my '87 / '84 W201 with a 5-speed manual and one of the rubber bushings are missing from one of the 3 shifter arms. I'm not having much luck with the search function? Any advise on how to secure a replacement?

Thanks!

A guy on the 190rev forum is building delrin shifter bushing kits for the W201 and W124 which replace all the rubber shifter bushings on these cars. I have it in my cars and it totally transformed shift quality. The shift throws are shorter and all the slop and rubberyness is gone. I highly recomend it.
Heres the thread with the current bushing kit maker. $55 shipped is a bargain IMHO.

the attached thread appeared to end without the bushings being available yet?

Are there OEM options available?

The MB Classic center is nice and easy to deal with.
Pelican has them as well.
