So check these out:




Hellooooooo new bits. Smile I'll have those in my hands in a few days, and can give some better comparison shots. Not sure what they'll cost yet.

what happened to the Spectra ST185 ? I'll stop off at their HQ next week and see what the deal is.

This is from Spectra Premium. I sent an OE set to them (left) and they built that prototype. They're sending it my way to verify fitment, and if all is well, they'll be sold to the public.

For us in FL? Not so much.

Everyone else? Yeah, sometimes. Sedan and wagon straps are different.

Ok, let me know if I can help. My brother lives right next to their HQ.

It seems weird that they would need a set considering they sold the ST185 until recently.

Yeah, I don't know. A friend of mine from another forum who bought a wagon had contacted them asking if they could produce a set, they said they needed one, so I sent it to them.

Pretty cool that you're close to them.

He's right next to their Boucherville, QC location. If the straps they are sending you don't fit, and they need a tank/straps, let me know. He can bring the wagon in, or the tank and straps as he needs to do the sender and drop the tank in the very near future.

Keep me in the loop as far as timeframe for availability to the public. My brother needs a new set, and I think Jay might as well.

I replaced two exhaust hangers today and noticed the rust on my straps. I hope the prototypes are a good fit, as I'm in the market for replacements.

I hope they are too. Smile Will update you guys.

If they ARE a good fit, I will sand my current set down clean and sell those for cheap, since I won't need them.

Um....about whom might you be speaking?? ;-)

Glad they came through. I should get a set as a finders fee for setting up this little deal :-)

Your choice of cars on your NEXT list is excellent.Boatail Riv was a classic in 71 and the Merc 560
is a timeless beauty as well!Always wanted a 70 Grand Prix SJ and when I finally found one that
I could afford his X ended up with it in the divorce.Always loved that long hood and that gorgeous
grill.Actually like all the cars on yuor NOW list.Welcome to the gang and please some pics of your
NOW cars!

Hi, thanks Flasheroo. Here are a few pics, which I guess are threadjacking Ray's straps:

Me too! Perhaps the two-car garage has an elevator floor that goes down to a lower level parking garage. Razz

Thanks all...

The key to getting them to fit is to use an off site warehouse ;-)

DTS is FWD.

Still waiting on them. They were likely just shipped out Monday. If I don't hear anything by Friday, I will inquire about a tracking number.

Some info received from Spectra:

Good day,

Thank you for your inquiry. The ETA to market this fuel tank strap set is early to mid-December 2012.

Best regards,

Hi,
I should have provided more information about the straps. I hadn't seen any updates on the status of the straps on this forum, so I contacted Spectra directly by e-mail last week. I posted the reply that I received on Thursday.

Yeah. That's the same ETA they told me. Right now I have the prototype set that I test fit on my car, but if Jason's brother really needs them NOW, I'd rather see them go to him than sit in my storage waiting. Smile

They don't. They LIST them, but they never had any available for sale for some reason.

What they told me was that they never had a viable set of straps to make a template from.

Good to know on the ETA -- will definitely order a set.
