Since I own both a Dino and a 124 Spider, I can compare the parts. The boot pad on the right is from a 1973 124 Spider. I am mising one on my Dino Boot so I will be getting one of these from Chris Obert soon and seeing if I can modify it. If not then the little metal plate will be pretty easy to weld up and rivet to the plastic.

The parts appear to be the same, about 1/4" difference in length (the Dino one is longer)

The 124 one will not work as-is, if you click this picture for the enlarged one, I have put in some text to show where it needs to be modified.
Boot part tabs
I did try and fit my 124 one onto the Dino and also found that the metal tabs on the Dino one are bent slightly, I thought that was just due to rough handling and incorrect but the 124 did NOT look like it would fit even if I filed that ridge off that is visible on the larger picture. To make a 124 one fit, you would need to file down the "Ridge" and MAYBE bend the tabs with a little heat.

fits nicely, in the Dino Boot.
all finished
