    They look great, I think most concours judges would probably miss that they were not the difference is subtle.

    i hear tons of ppl getting these straps done at saddlery or shoe repair stores for like $20-40 for a set and reusing their original hardware but every time I call, the quotes I'm getting are like $1-200!

    Tim I got mine back about 1 week ago from a Saddle shop here in Central Fl. for $31.00 for the 2 straps (black) 458 Italia. Did specify my own hardware. Replaced the rivets with #10-16 x1" Black Trim Screws (Dormins).

    Any updates on the leather straps. I purchased the tool bag strap from Ricambi but now I need the other 2. (360) I have the old straps with hardware and could ship.

    Any updates on availability of the reproduction straps ? (360) I have all the hardware and deteriorated straps that I could send if that would help.

    How do you access behind the rivets after drilling them out? A bit confused on this. Straps on my 458 just broke, man that’s junky.

    I am also wondering how to mount the new straps after having drilled out the old ones:

    Just ripped one of my straps and decided to also replace them with nice new, black leather straps.

    But before I get them out I’d really appreciate some Tipps on how to install them best.

    Thank you very much for letting me know how you guys managed to do that!
