    How-To: Locations of lower engine cover retaining strips

    Kind of a cheat sheet to know where the different sizes go, either for when you are installing your set, or trying to determine which sizes you might be missing.

    Anyone know when this kit changed price? I had thought not long ago it was still around $80 and now it is $340. It used to be an easy justification for getting the entire kit once you were missing at least 3 or 4 of them, now maybe not so much.

    I was wondering that as well. Could be that the NOS strips are running low now?

    Well I guess my timing was good to reintroduce our stainless screen retaining strip kit. They are available now.

    Grained Bright Stainless E. C. Screen Retaining Bracket Kit Part # 106388GS $149.75

    In a week or two we will have it in a grained black oxide finish as well. I really like the look of grained black stainless.

    Perfect timing for me as well!!!

    Since you are finishing up my lower engine cover, I was actually thinking as we speak who makes these in Stainless.
