SD Rack Feet

So I have some SD cross bars I want to use on my 90 and the feet are destroyed. I think Mike said they will not sell the feet to the SD racks they are making so I asked my guy making the screens if he could copy them. He said he could but not worth the trouble unless he makes 16 sets. Something about the metal bar he has to buy to do it. So the cost is roughly $475 a set. I want one so in order to do this 15 other people need to want them.

Now I have no idea if anyone else wants them and I might be wrong and Mike might be selling them in which case obviously he is the guy to go to but if not and the interest is there I could have them done.

Let me know.

thanks

If someone can send me an SD foot I can engineer a solution.

Are these made from solid aluminum and machined to size?

ECR had these for $65 each and it keeps the crossbars factory. They are out of stock and do not know when or if they will be making them again. Same with their oil line converson kit. If anyone has one of the feet from ECR maybe Wolf can duplicate them for a reasonable price.

Search oil cooler lines. ECR isn't the only supplier of them.

Looking at the feet, my cost in materials alone would be about $40 each. I could probably hit the $65-$70 each price point when done.

Looks like a bit of tube cut in half, bit of box welded on top, some holes drilled, tapped and powder coated.

I would imagine the labor represents the largest cost in making these.

Wolf I may send you some feet I have laying around. The stock ones suck with the hinge design. I think you can come up with a better design. As you probably know it get tight on the inside next to the roofline on hardtops... or at least on my POE top it does.
