Looking for one Gabriel Snubber webbing clamp as pictured. These clamp the webbing strap onto itself after it wraps around the axle loop. I'm sure I could make these, but someone may have some good used ones in their box of goodies. Added pictures in uncleaned condition. Chris Wantuck (732) 530-1917 email@example.com
Guest posted a topic in AACA - Class JudgingWhen the committee reviews the 2014 Judging Guidelines and considers changes for the next edition (2016), I recommend it consider changing the points for Snubbers/Shocks under Chassis. The current score sheet states a maximum of three (3) points may be deducted for snubbers/shocks. That seems like a strange number since there are four shocks/snubbers/struts on most cars and, in comparison, the guidelines state a maximum of "3 ea" for springs. (Is it possible there was a typo in the 2014 Judging Guidelines and snubbers/shocks also should have said "3 ea"?) When the guidelines are next updated I recommend the score for snubbers/shocks be changed to either 4 (four) total points or to 3 (three) each (so a total max deduction of 12). (Personally I prefer the latter because it gives judges considerably more latitude in scoring for the component's condition. Since a max deduction is only allowed when a component is missing, not authentic, or not serviceable for its intended purpose and fractional deductions are not allowed, if the score is only 3 or 4 points total it basically boxes us in to only taking a deduction if the snubber/shock is missing, non-authentic or not serviceable. Increasing the deduction to 3 each allows us to deduct 1 point if the snubber/shock has issues, 2 if it's in really poor condition, and 3 if it's missing, non-authentic or unserviceable.) What do others think?
