    We carry Watson Racing Products for the S197 and S550 Mustangs. We have a freight order leaving this week to Florida. If any of you are in the area and were interested in any of their products let us know and we can save you on the shipping charges. We have 3 bare 4 point S550 Bars on the way. We have had several requests for custom colors (Grey - Red are standard colors) for Customers who want to color match or paint the bar to their Mustangs. Watson did a special run for us. You can bring them to your local powder-coater or paint them to accent or match your Mustang Color.

    Let us know in the next couple of days. Thank you!

    We just wanted to update everyone that we have 3 of the Watson 4 Point Bolt-In Cage Bars in stock. We worked hard to convince Watson to pull these aside for us because it disrupts their production. Watson does a production run and they Powder Coat immediately in house. Pulling these out of the normal sequence of operations is not something they prefer to do.

    If you are interested in one they are up on OUR SITE, we just updated it to reflect the "Raw, BARE" option. We have to time it with Watson's Production Schedule so they are first come first serve. If you view the pictures you can see why they own the market. The quality of fabrication is excellent, again these are bare, and they are beautifully constructed, there is no finishing done to cover up poor fabrication. You could clear coat it and it would look nice hanging on the wall.

    You can paint these or have them Powder Coated Locally any color you want, no need to add the extra labor expense of prepping or stripping the powder coat for a Custom Color. We do not offer paint and powder coat, go to a local painter or coater so you can see and touch the color you want.

    We also stock the Carpet Kit and also have the Aluminum Close Out panel available. We ship anywhere and offer Local Pickup.

    If you were curious why Watson will not offer custom or alternative colors it is for a couple reasons.
    1. The powder is expensive, for them to buy a small custom color would cost more than it costs them to do a production run of Red or Grey.
    2. For the same reason we urge Customers to find a local coater, what you expect may not be what you end up with (shades of colors vary) and they don't want to disappoint anyone.

    I can get the coated S197'S but to get bare ones I would need a couple of people committed.
