They will suit the SC/360's and any 71 Hornet's etc perfect as he is doing the 71 model lenses which are the same as the 70 models except the 70 have a chrome strip and the 71 has a silver strip. The Chrome strip can be removed from old 70 lenses and applied to the new lenses for those wishing to do so. 

Does anyone know of a good alternative chrome strip that is almost the same as the 70 strip out there? As this would help convert them to 70 lenses if needed. One of my lenses has some Bunnings/Car parts shop generic type chromestrip which almost the same but just not right.

sweet !! Gary has sent me a confirmation.
I noticed a NOS lens came up on US EBay recently .......... $175 ?
With exchange rate and shipping, be around $270 - $300 to get it home.

Hi everyone. I was informed throughout the week that Len Pendlebury's torque convertor shop was broken into and a number of items and tools taken. Some AMC gearboxes were stolen and Alan Jones is after another early T400 that suits the early AMC Jeeps if anyone has one out there to replace the stolen item. Len had all his tools marked (I think he has put something up on facebook about what was taken etc) so be on the lookout for any odd things plus the gearboxes may be sold to Chev owners so if you know a Chev owner who buys a gearbox that doesnt seem to fit it could be one of the missing one's

Do you have the 4 piston calipers? I've just swapped my 4 piston type out (off a 69 Rebel) for single piston Kelsey Hayes and the pads I removed are like new. So long as my brake upgrade works you can have whatever parts you need from my 4 piston setup. I'm hoping to bleed and test this afternoon. I'm an hour north of Sydney

My 4 pistons had been sitting for 20 years and i had a set of single pistons from a 72 Matador, much easier for parts and better sytem with thicker and vented rotors.
