    Are they anything like the 280z? I have some from a '78 you could get.

    I always thought you could make up new ones from the right metal. They don't look too complicated, except for the threaded end.

    The original creator of the straps is making new ones again. He's still working on it but I have hope that they'll be available soon.

    They use Kevlar for a lot of stuff nowadays. Would it be possible to make Kevlar straps? They wouldn't stretch or rust, but the fittings on the ends would be difficult to attach, probably.
