Fox, Coon & Coyote Tail Antenna Toppers!
$37.50

Here's something you don't find very often-and these are the real deal, as traditional as they get!  Genuine Fox Tails, Coon Tails, and  Coyote Tails,  all set up to be used as Antenna Toppers.  If you're trying for an athentic, vintage look, this is one "must have" detail that you shouldn't overlook!   If you take some time and study  old pictures of Hot Rods & Customs, you'll see these were pretty much the only thing run as an antenna topper, and they were quite common back in the day.   About as "Old School" as they get! Now I know these might not seem real PC these days, but I got these from a leather supplier, a "Good 'Ole Boy" that buys/tans/sells roadkill, among other things-(probably run  over by a Hot Rodder!)  These are all set up with a leather lace tie on the ends to attach them to your antenna.  The quality  is very good, they are nice and bushy.  This is a natural product, so tail sizes will vary, but Fox are about 13"-15" long, Coons are about 11"-13" long and Coyote are about 12"-14" long.  These sizes are only approximate, actual tails may be larger or smaller.

 You do know what sets a great looking car apart from all the rest, right?  It's all in the details!

Leather Tank Straps
$139.00

LEATHER TANK STRAPS - Custom made to fit your gas tank, truck box or trunk.  We can make them in many different styles, using just about any hardware you want, any style buckles, (Lever, Roller, Double "D", whatever you can think of...)    All tank straps include buckle pads, that piece of leather behind the buckle that keeps the hardware off the tank. Available in 6 colors of leather, and Stainless or Brass hardware.   These straps can also be used to hold down truck boxes, tool boxes and trunks. Either in the bed of a truck, or inside the trunk!

 

Since all tank installations are different, we will need accurate dimensions to make them fit properly.  Take one overall measurement from mounting point to mounting point.  Then take another measrement from the front or rear mounting point,  to where you want to locate the buckle assembly, usually on top of the tank, where it can be seen. Pricing is for one pair, (two straps).

 

Dimensions can be sent in a seperate email to:
eric@hotrodleather.com

Stainless Steel Hardware Set for Hood Straps
$16.00

This is a set of 8, high quality, Stainless Steel Oval Head Machine Screws, Fender Washers, and Special Nylon Locknuts, perfectly sized to mount the upper SS Mounting Brackets to the hood for our SSHS-4 Shorty Style Hood Straps, or for mounting our Stainless Steel Guide Loops for the Deluxe Style Hood Straps.  These can also be used for the lower mounting brackets, if the frame is not boxed, or there is full access to the backside of the mounting location. Fender Washers are a much larger diameter than normal washers, and are designed for use on sheet metal.   These are an Oval Head Machine Screw, #10/24 thread x .75" in length.

We also sell a set of 8 Oval Head Stainless Steel mounting Screws seperately, (No Fender Washers or Nylon Locknuts), and these can be used to mount the lower brackets, but you will need to add either nutserts, weld in nut plates to the backside of the frame, or have enough material thickness on the frame to drill and tap the holes for the lower mounting brackets.

Shorty Style Hood Straps
$199.00

Our Standard Leather Hood Straps, and our most popular, this set of 4 Shortys is designed for those running just a hood top. These veg tanned 1 1/4" straps are made from extremely strong, heavy weight harness leather. They are infinitely adjustable, and come assembled and ready to install, this is not a kit! Available with strong stainless steel hardware with machine set nickel rivets, or with brass hardware and rivets. The strap size is fully adjustable, with a  mount to mount length from about 15" to about 27", but they can be custom sized to fit any application as needed. The mounting loops are approximately 2 1/8" from hole to hole. Since they are infinitely adjustable, there is no need for springs!   Available in 5 different finishes, Black, Natural Russet, 50 Year Old Black, Mellow Tan & Dark Brown. There is an additional charge for the Mellow Tan and Dark Brown finishes, as they are hand applied, finished and buffed.  As with most of our hood straps, these are made to order, so please allow 3-5 days production time proir to shipping.

 

The optional Actylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat permanently protects the straps against damage from UV or wet weather.  We recommend this option for the NATURAL RUSSET, BLACK & 50 YEAR OLD BLACK straps, as they are essentially "unfinished" leathers.  Without this clearcoat finish, they should be regularly  treated with "Neatsfoot Oil" or other good quality boot oil  for longer service life. Mellow Tan and Dark Brown have the Saddlmakers Acrylic Clearcoat already.

 

Now available with Stainless Steel "Miller" race car style zig-zag springs as an option! (see images above) These straps come complete, are fully adjustable, and have zig-zag springs in place, ready to install!  Just select this as an option when ordering.  (Please allow 3-5 days extra production time for this option).

 

 

NOTE:  50 YEAR OLD BLACK IS BACK! 

It's replacment, "Distressed Black", a much less "beat up" looking leather, is still available, too!  It still looks old, just not as old.  It is a black finish, with a mottled, slightly worn look.  Call for a sample. 

NOW, YOU'VE GOT 2 DISTRESSED, VINTAGE LOOKING LEATHERS TO CHOOSE FROM!!

"Deuce" Style Hood Straps
$199.00

Here's a new style hood strap, designed just for you Deuce owners-or anybody running a '32 hood. It was designed with the assistance of a '32 owner that wanted to be able to run just a hood top part time to show off the engine, but he didn't want to be drilling holes or making modifications to ANYTHING. So, I designed a set of easy on/easy off Shorty Hood Straps, just for Deuce hoods. To install, all you need to do is pull the hinge pin, (or rod) out, take off the side panels, install the Shorty Straps onto the hinge rod, (see pics) set it back on the car. The top of the straps mount to the hinge rod, and the bottom of the straps mount to the original, stock spring loaded hood latches-no holes to drill, nothing to modify! When you want to put the side back on the hood, you can do so easily. And, they are infinitely adjustable, so they will be nice and tight, with just the tension from the stock hood latches! As with all our hood straps, they are made of 1 1/4" wide high quality, heavy harness type leather, with stainless steel hardware, and machine set nickel rivets. These are available in Black, Natural Russet, 50 Year Old Black, (with optional Acrylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat) and our new colors, Mellow Tan and Dark Brown. These two new colors have a bit of a patina to them, kind of an old, mellow looking finish, and they cost a bit more, as they're hand applied and finished.   As with most of our hood straps, these are made to order, so please allow 3-5 days for production time proir to shipping.

 

NOTE:  These are designed to fit a STOCK '32 FORD ONLY.  They are not designed to work with any other make, model or year. 

 

The optional Actylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat permanently protects the straps against damage from UV or wet weather.  We recommend this option for the NATURAL RUSSET, BLACK & 50 YEAR OLD BLACK straps, as they are essentially "unfinished" leathers.  Without this clearcoat finish, they should be regularly  treated with "Neatsfoot Oil" or other good quality boot oil  for longer service life.  Mellow Tan and Dark Brown have the Saddlmakers Acrylic Clearcoat already. 

NOTE:  50 YEAR OLD BLACK IS BACK! 

It's replacment, "Distressed Black", a much less "beat up" looking leather, is still available, too!  It still looks old, just not as old.  It is a black finish, with a mottled, slightly worn look.  Call for a sample.

Deluxe Full Hood Straps
$299.00

Deluxe Full Hood Straps Set  For the ultimate in over the top style hood straps, nothing beats the look or performance of our Deluxe Full Hood Straps Sets. Made from the same high quality, veg tanned harness style leather as all our other strap goods, these Deluxe Full Hood Straps are designed to go "over the top", mounting on one frame rail, going over the hood top, and mounting on the other frame rail. They can be used on full hood models, as well as those running just the hood top, giving each a unique vintage racer look. These beautiful 1 1/4" wide straps feature all stainless steel mounting hardware, buckles and tensioner hardware. This unique tensioner design was inspired by one found in old photos of a vintage 1927 Bentley Racer. The tensioner pads, as well as the optional buckle pads, are lined with a soft suede leather, to keep from harming your shiny paint job! These outstanding hood straps are infinitely adjustable, and are sized to fit most any early style Hot Rod hood, from Model A's to Deuce Coupes to RPU's. Maximum length is around 84", and minimum practical length is around 40", but these sizes can be adjusted accordingly to fit any application. Available in Black, Natural Russet, 50 Year Old Black, and in our new Mellow Tan or Dark Brown hand applied and buffed finishes at added cost.   As with most of our hood straps, these are made to order, so please allow 3-5 days production time proir to shipping.

NOTE:     When ordering, please be sure to tell us what year, and model of hood you are running.  We have dimensions for most Ford Models from about 1910- 1937.   If you don't know what year your hood is, then please give us your hood measurements!  This will help us make your straps to exactly fit your application.  Input these dimensions in the comments section at our checkout page. We'll need the distance from the center of hood to the hood top edge, and from the center of hood to the frame rail, at both the front and rear of the hood, taken about 4 to 6 inches in from the ends. We will build in enough adjustment so that your straps will fit properly, so give us the exact dimensions and we'll take it from there.  Since these hood straps are custom made to order, they may take a few days to produce, so please allow time for this.  Even with custom orders, we ship within 2-5 days of receiving the order.  If you have questions or aren't sure of what size you need, call us, we are happy to walk you through the measuring process!
