Soon to be on the market... these are excellent reproductions of a small yet important piece. These are the end caps that are used to mount the pull straps on 69-70 XR-7 Cougars, as well as other Lincoln / Mercury cars those years. The front cover piece sticks on with the included 3M double-sided tape. The texture is ever so slightly different from the original (see comparison pic) but the difference is very minor. They both have a brushed finish. I don't know of an exact ETA or price, but maybe Don will pitch in with that info if he knows.

And now my favorite part: pictures!

Nice to know. I assumed, since all four of my inserts are missing, that they were of simulated wood for the XR7.

Wow. Very cool.

Will the stick-on parts be available separately?

Now if only someone would produce a decent repro pull strap. In Saddle, please......

The best time to sell then is before the reproductions are available.

I have learned my lesson... I no longer commit to when something will be available or what the price will be as 2 things ALWAYS happen. It takes longer than you think and cost more, just like when you restore your car. Impossible to factor in shipping, customs, tooling changes, exchange rate, strikes, wars, plagues, riots and???? These are coming just in time, we are down to our last few used ones.
