All pre-order reservations are now taken.  Everyone that reserved will get a kit as shown below for $50ea. + shipping.   for those that reserved - you should have received a note from me by now.

thanks to all those that have supported the project.  Watch the 69 SC JOURNEY for photos of install on my springs in about 2 weeks.

I will be holding a few extra overrun sets for sale at Gettysburg only.  Look for my table in the flea market.

Kevin, my sets arrived today.  Very, very nice.  Thank you.
The difference between people and AMC's is that they will always be making more people; they won't be making more AMC's

Kevin,
I received the wraps a while back and forgot to give you a big shout out. What a great item indeed! When I re-did my springs a few years ago, we tried to reuse my originals to no avail. We ended up modifying repro Mustang wraps but they do not look correct by any means. Cant wait to replace them with these.

thanks again for a badly needed part for the SC/R's.

Mark, thank you for the shout out and also thanks for sharing your previous experience on other options out there. Doing that same research myself I came to that conclusion and decided to make them a project. Tonight I will post up the instructions and also a special announcement for those that ordered one of the kits.

Attached here is a PDF file describing the process of installing the Spring wraps without harming surface finishes.


In addition, you have probably seen by now the finished springs on 69 SC JOURNEY and the short review on getting correct geometry wear pads 3D printed.  The cost to do those, while not bad per piece, gets expensive when multiplied by (12) especially when $1 - $2 functional replacements are available.  I decided that unless we had plenty of volume to consider an aluminum mold tool to make it, then it just wasn't economically reasonable to consider them a project.

However, I am willing to offer for free (only to any of the few persons that participated in this project), and digital copy of the 3D CAD file necessary to go out and source them yourself.  I will also provide help on how to get the best pricing, but I will warn that it still won't be for the faint of heart,  Just PM me for more details if you want to source them.

Feel free to ask any questions on the above process that is not clear enough.

P.S. - I suggest downloading this file and saving it for future reference.
