I just picked up a new pair for $90.00 (not genuine) from Duncan at:

They're pretty good quality...now I just need to install 'em!

Recommend genuine only for a small amount more. They are curved, cut & edged in perfect countour with the wingtop. Also include genuine padding underneath and the correct nuts/bolts (genuine units are predrilled).

The wing top protectors I have are curved, cut & edged, and pre-drilled also. They do not come with nuts/bolts (can get these anywhere), or padding (what do you really need that for?). They do not come with the high price of genuine protectors. I've seen genuine units go for roughly $300.00.

Up to you...

I put on a set like Will has a couple of days ago. They seem to fit well on my 94 and my budget. As I opted for 3/16 rivets, I had to recess the holes a bit with a 3/8 pilot point drill bit. This allows a nice flush rivet to plate fit. I also installed the hood plate. The fit was not quite as good as the wing tops, but not too bad either.

I also bought the rear panel protectors. They are going to require a bit more work as they ony came with one hole predrilled and they will need a slot cut in them to clear the rear side marker light.

Not contoured like genuines.

Try the usual gamut, DAP, RN, BP, etc., sometimes on sale.
