    Default Repro 67 GS400 Spring Steel hood insulation strap

    Check out the thread in "Stock Appearing" for the 67 GS400 and Riviera GS spring steel hood insulation strap that I am getting ready to reproduce. I will be ordering the material soon, so if you need one to hold the hood insulation away from your "Star-Wars" air cleaner, let me know.
    The price will be $35 + shipping once I get them into production.
    Thanks, Randy

    Put me down for one. e-mail to cookr@oge.com. I assume only one needed per auto. Car being painted at this time so can't look at hood but assume all with 400 engine had this brace as original. Is that correct? Thanks

    I just wanted to let you guys know that the spring steel material is on a UPS truck on its way to me as of today. If it arrives by friday afternoon, I should have about a dozen of the straps ready to ship by the middle of next week.
    That should be enough for the members here on the board that requested them. Thanks again to all of you that responded. I will provide the address for you to send the payments to once they are here and I make sure the material meets the specifications I provided for the supplier. Later, Randy

    OK everyone, the hood straps are in! 10 have been painted, and they will be ready to ship thursday. I will accept several methods of payment, including personal checks, money orders, or paypal. If you want to mail the payment, send it to:

    Kelrand Sales Company
    P.O. Box 306
    Fort Scott, KS 66701

    If you want to use paypal, send it to: kelrandsales@sbcglobal.net

    As for the price, including shipping, lets just make it an even $36.00 for one part ($32 per part & $4 S&H) shipped anywhere in the continental US via USPS. If you are outside that area, I will have to calculate the shipping on an individual basis. If you buy 2 parts, shipping will still be $4. They will be shipped in a 3" diameter cardboard shipping tube. Checks and money orders will be required to clear the bank before the part will be shipped.
    Make sure you provide your mailing address with the payment, especially on the paypal accounts.
    I can also be reached most evenings at 620-224-2335 if you have any questions. Thanks again, Randy Sprague

    Rod, you and Harvey (GS-XNR) got the first two straps I sent out today. I went ahead and sent them priority mail, so you both should have them soon!

    Just thought I would let everyone know that I put the last 12 of these hood staps on Ebay last night. The price has changed a little to $28 each, but the shipping is now $7.
    I won't be making any more of these once they are gone, so if you want one you might want to get it soon. As I write this (8pm central time 8/3/11) there are 11 left for sale.
    Thanks to all of you that bought one in the past. It is a good feeling to know that a small piece of my handiwork will be riding along in some awesome Buicks from here at V8 and the ROA.
    Later, Randy
