Late Soft top/Hard top latch sets

Post by zippy67roadster » Tue Jan 23, 2018 8:20 pm

So I received the samples of the late top latches. They are just as nice as the early ones I had made. These are again made of stainless steel and will include all 6 pieces but not the rear view mirror mounting piece that snaps into the center receiver. The center latch is the style with the centering tab as I felt this was the better made set originally. The first run should be available at the end of February or early March so look around then for the sales ad in the vendor section of the forum. I have included some picture to show the quality of the pieces.

Nicely done ! Even having any kind of repo is a big step forward because the existing supply was really starting to dry up. But these look very nice as a bonus☺

Thanks for your effort to make these. There is a lot of work here. Bravo! Would like to have these in my product line like your early ones. Good job!

I've run into a small delay with the production of the latches. I should have them in hand middle of May. They're going to be $260 for a full set of six pieces. That will include shipping in the continental US.

Put me in for 20 sets with an option for 20 more.
