Back in the day, Cinzano signs were the material of choice (or am I dating myself?).
Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints.....

Correct material for a floor although speed limit signs are good too.

I was thinking dune buggy. Almost looks like it could fit in a T6 coupe if you left off the engine lid.

I've only ever heard about these. Was buying a truckload from an old guy today. He asked to see pics of my car and he said, "I had knock-off's, sort-of".
He dug them out and threw them in the truck. Will the fun ever stop?

Were those the ones that were marketed as "NokOff" ? I had a set and that was on the spinner. I remember buying my first pair of "Iron Cross" torsion bar covers from this same company.
