    That TCS Clip is either 1. a different design... Or 2. a poor homemade reproduction. The clip end is way too fat. Look at the previous pictures posted on this topic.

    I think I've made my opinion of Ebay very plain in the past. Fools shop there.

    Prices on bad reproductions should not go up.

    The crooks also come out when prices go up.

    Is there anyone here who will belly up to the bar and agree that the poor sucker who paid the $300 for the junk repop TCS clip got value and got what they paid for?

    Anyone??

    Rumor has it that the seller of the most recent clip posts here.

    Folks-If you do not stand up for what is right, you will fall for anything.

    Hey Chuck, where are you at??? I cannot be the only person here that wants to see the differance in clip size of these two designs side by side??

    Given the intense debate on the previous TCS clip post things are kinda quiet ........ [​IMG]

    I want to see the differences as well. Side by side. I am going to go through all my nuts and bolts containers later on this evening. I seem to recall that I might have a couple of them laying around. At least I hope I do. My 71 Z28 is missing a lot of incidental stuff like this, hopefully I can find one in the cans that I have.

    I think this would be another great project for Jack to reproduce!

    Hey Phil is this the clip you think is wrong? [​IMG]
    I'm not 100% sure this one is wrong, I'll take mine off my car today and get some good close up pictures to compare. The picture I took before aren't very clear. I'll leave it on the loom and in the same position.
    Bob, I have the original GM print and have send it out for quotes, but the cost was so high that I wasn't sure there was a big enough market for them. But now seeing what they are bringing I may have to rethink the idea.

    Jack, should I put my order for one in now, or should I wait. [​IMG]
