Default Side pipe cover protectors?

I need a new set, but can't seem to find any available. Does anyone know where I can get a set?

I bought mine from Corvette Central a few years ago. They have held up good. I have taken them off from time to time and cleaned behind them. Easy on and easy off. Has been well worth the money spent.
They still carry them. part #322045 Side Exhaust Cover Shields

That part number and part have been discontinued for quite some time.

I'm looking for a pair also. Ecklers is out of stock. Paragon has none either. If anyone finds someone who has stock, please let us know. Cheers, Bill

I've been looking for a few months. I was finally able to contact the guy who makes them. His names is James West. he told me that the demand was low and he was not sure if he would make more.

Just recently on the NCRS forum a couple of weeks ago -

James West said he plans to make the cover shields again this Fall. He recommended that if anyone is interested to send him a text and he will let you know when he has some made. His cell number is 402-618-1815

Pleast text him to encourage him to make them

I checked both Jegs and Summit. Don't see them on either site. Bill

I've had my shields on for about 20 years and they are a great addition - hope they start making them again. Until then, I wonder if a couple coats of the 3M Defender Spray Protective Film might work to protect the front of them. Then it can be peeled off later if the plastic shields become available again.

Good question. I tried email, PM, and voice calls using contact info on the NCRS forum for weeks before I got the response about why he had not made any more. The info about texting him was from someone else's thread on that forum.

It would be nice to get some form of confirmation.

I just called his number and got his answering machine (James West) so the number is correct. Bill
