Kim is the daughter of the old US dealer for SD. He sadly died some time ago and Kim took over his slot. She is a one woman show who runs things from her living room. It is kind of up in the air right now where she will take SDNA, but she can sell product, but is bound by the same rules as ECR is from SD.

They old Safety Devices NA shop used to be down in Mooresville, NC, in the heart of NASCAR country. I think that they were doing some roll cage work for some of the NASCAR shops, but I'm not 100% on that. I have a couple of friends that picked up some roof racks that they had left over, stuff LRNA told them they didn't need (mostly Freelander, MKIII RR, and Disco I). I think her father's name was Julio.

It is still in NC, but there is no more shop.
According to Pat Fall, owner of SD, they never did any work for anything NASCAR, but did at times look towards trying to do something with Jeeps and other more USA based vehicles.

Discussed elsewhere. The molds were destroyed.

Ron is correct.
There is absolutely no chance that SD will ever make the NAS padded cages again. No chance.

For many many years SD kept the jigs. They kept asking LR, "Are you sure you'll never want any more of these?" LR kept telling them they would never again want any of those parts. Tony kept asking periodically, and then when they had to pack everything up and move it from the UK they made some hard choices about what stays and what goes, and with LR saying they would never order those parts again...

SD should have kept the jigs; they know better than that.

As a hobbyist, they should have kept them.
As a business person, keeping them would be stupid.

The only customer that bought those parts assures you over years of pestering that they will never buy the product again and you've got to pay thousands to move something overseas for what you now know will never be used again.
Combine that with the fact that the company that did the injection plastic went out of business years before... those jigs look pretty freaking useless from a business standpoint IMO.

Then add in that most folks freak out about the cost of roll cage parts anyway... imagine what repos of that cage would cost today. No one would buy them. Although I wish they didn't do it, I agree with how they came to that choice.

Are these parts in demand at all? If not, then I agree as a business owner, keeping them would be pointless.

As some of them start to deteriorate, Any ideas what people will do? Mine is in good shape but I have seen some that are really shitty. I would guess it would cost too much to design knew ones here.

No demand for them at what they cost to make.
Lots of people want them, but they want the entire cage for cheap and that is impossible.

Some solution will present itself, but it won't be replacement factory style parts.
