So I really like having a cloth tow strap vs the traditional half moon ones.

 

I just like the way they look, don't slap against the body work like the metal ring (though it doesn't do it that much), and is lighter weight (though again not much).

 

When I was searching for cloth tow straps, I saw a super nice one made for BMW's but the thread pitch wouldn't fit our cars.

Taylor C, on the other forum had a thread where is friend was making custom tow straps and I asked him if he could make a cloth one for us.  Unfortunately, no dice and I thought that this project was dead.

 

Well, Taylor is pretty persistent!  He found out who made those tow straps (IND) and contacted them and they stated they could make some for us!!!

 

Sweet, but some downsides.  We need 15 people to order and I think it will be $150 a piece

**I need to double check that price...I thought I had it in an email but can't find it**

 

But like the IND link above, the hardware is CNC'd with a rubber washer, that when tighten you can still have it level.

 

ANY ONE IN?!?!!?!

 

 

Finally, if we don't get enough people, all isn't lost.  He did make one for a Porsche 911, but it isn't a nice CNC'd piece.  What they do is take a stock tow hook and weld it to the end piece.  They look pretty good too!  Here are some pics of the custom 911 piece.

they can make it any color you want!  We just need 15 people or people ordering 15 straps.  I need two (one for the front one for the back)..

 

so that leaves you guys to get the last 13!

 

if you goto that IND link you can see all the different colors they have.

you need the DBA rear bumper support and the attachment piece.  I'll try to find that thread with the part numbers.

I thought it was the cloth tow straps that would flap in the wind and slap against the paintwork, no?

No, I'll try to find some pictures, but the one I have right now, I just have it folded over and tucked into the eyelet. If you look at some pics from the Japanese crowd, they use a rubber band to fold it back over or in the case of the front, make a separate cover that has a slit opening and have just the end of the strap stick out kinda like a stuck out tongue...I'll post pics

Current interest is:

 

1.  7racer (two)

2.  Kman (1 blue)

3. Ashraf (1 yellow)

 

so 4 total...ugh.  Long way to go

if this ends up happening will need to know if you have a CBA or DBA due to the thread size being different on the front of the DBA IIRC.

 

I'll pm paparazzi to see if I can get this thread added over on the other forum
