Quick Overview

These “Show Grade Shorty Style Hood Straps” aren’t for everybody, or for every build, but if you’re looking for a set of hood straps that will fit perfectly on that show winning build, this is the set!

We all know the difference between a show winner and all the rest, right? It’s all in the details…The regular Shorty Style hood straps we make are fantastic, they're impossible to beat for those running only a hood top. They work properly, look outstanding and would be fine for 99% of the Hot Rods being built. But for that 1% of you that have to have the finest, here they are. What’s so special about them, how do they differ from all the rest? Here’s the list:

- All the Stainless Steel hardware has been carefully selected for the best castings, then cut and polished to a mirror like shine-about 5 hours of polishing goes into each set.

- The 1.25” leather straps are carefully selected for the best leather, then split down the center, and the two finished sides are glued back to back, so there is a nice finished side on both the front & the back of the straps.

- The two sides are then stitched together, and using an old saddle makers trick, the stitch is set down into a small groove, so the thread is countersunk into the leather to avoid wear.

- The edges of the straps are rounded over using a “French edger”, then burnished smooth with a bone burnishing tool.

- The straps are then dyed the color of your choice 3 times, including the backs and edges.

- The edges are then burnished smooth again.

- The straps are then clear coated, 4 coats, with an acrylic saddle makers clear that protects them from UV damage and water damage, yet still allows the character of the leather to show through. They are then hand buffed to a mellow shine.

-They are then carefully hand assembled with steel double cap rivets that have a polished nickel finish.

That's it, one set of Show Grade Shorty Hood Straps!
