Well are they any good? I have a nice pair of originals but one of the studs is missing on one and one on the other looks like it will come off soon. Do they look like a close reproduction?

I would venture to say, if they are produced by the same over seas company that makes the 65-66 parts, that they would be of the same poor quality.

Talked to Rick (NPD) and he said that the reproductions are no longer made. They must have really been crap like Alex said!

I bought a pair from Viginia Classic Mustang for my 68. Quality was good but they are about a 1/4 inch shorter then the originals.
