Default Master Cylinder Rebuild kit

So I have been out of the country for a while and just got back this weekend. Anyway, my D1 has been sitting for the 8 months or so I have been gone. Was going through her yesterday to get her running again. I noticed the brake reservoir was close to empty, so I filled her up. Got everything done and took her for a quick drive around the neighborhood only to find the brakes not working. Ended having to use the e-brake to stop and get home.

When I got back in the garage I found the brake reservoir again empty. So I filled it up again and had the wife sit in the car and press the brake pedal. While doing so I noticed brake fluid running down the side and back of the master cylinder. So I pulled it off and found the rubber boots where the reservoir connects to the master cylinder had rotted away and was allowing the brake fluid to run out. So I searched around and called a few part stores in my area looking for the boots. only one place carried them and it was as a rebuild kit, $300.00. He also told me I could buy a new master cylinder with the new boots for the same price. Same thing on all the rover parts web pages. Only thing have not done yet is call the dealership to see if they carry the boots.

So my question is does anyone know where to get just the boots? Or if maybe another vehicle has this part in common or one that I could use from a different vehicle. I really dont want to pay $300 just for two rubber boots.

EDIT: Parts(boots) found, they are an Audi part and I purchased them at my local Audi dealership. Part numbers are 893611817B & 4AO611817A, they ran me about $40.

Ok so I found just the boots by themselves. I called my local Rover stealership and the parts guy said they do sell just the boots, however they are an Audi part. So I called the Audi dealership and they had them in stock. Funny part is the guy at the parts counter at Audi asked me what year my Rover was, he said they sell about two or three of these a year and always to Rover owners. Funny how that works. Anyway the part numbers are 893611817B & 4AO611817A, they ran me about $40. I will also edit the op to reflect the part numbers. Thanks for everyones help.

They are probably Range Rover pads.

I recently did my 97 SD and I cut the wires. The old pads had them cut as well, and I didn't see anyplace to hook them up; didn't see anything in the RAVE diagram either.
