I am currently doing a 68 BB SS restoration. My windlace is old and worn out. Ricks has one in the catalog but when ordered they contacted me and said the piece is of poor quality and they were not going to sell it any longer. Can anyone offer any help or am I SOL.

Thanks.

I was in the same boat and tried something different. I had a spare set of the windlace that fits above the side windows. I just took one of those, cut it to length, and glued on a vinyl endcap. It installed perfectly. Not exactly like the original, but it looks great.

Ricks now includes a disclaimer in their catalog that the windlass repro is not of very high standard. I've noticed they include such disclaimers, or say "the repro is better than the new GM because the GM tooling is worn", on several other parts in their catalog. At least they are being upfront on some of this stuff.
