    Thanks Sid
    Here is how it went

    The reason I am looking for you is to ask you a question about 55 Nomad eyebrows and Spears. I have seen some very nice ones being sold by Hamlett's chevy parts They are 100 % Stainless. Do you know who these folks are ? Have you seen any of them yourself ? Any of your friends ever purchase any ?

    This thread reminds me of the MANY threads where a guy asks "I have a 55 with disc brakes, blah, blah, blah...what tires will fit?" and everyone has to tell him what size tires they run on their car without mentioning wheel offset, what their wheel mounting width is, what suspension or steering mods they've done, or any other pertinent information, nor do they ask the poster for the information required to help him.

    Sid asked about "stainless sheet metal" Nomad eyebrows and spears. I have yet to see anyone post a link to anyone who makes them. I looked on the other site and can't find the thread that supposedly mentioned them.....anyone got a link?

    Thanks for the pics Sid. The eyebrows are obviously cast.....cast Stainless? I can't tell about the spears but they don't look like sheetmetal to me either. They look like nice parts to me, but don't know how they fit.

    Thread at the other site, a guy said he recently bought some brass eyebrows from North Georgia pattern. From his website, looks like his main business is casting patterns, and Nomad deal is a side business.

    TODAY one can purchase decent to nice 6-piece '55 Nomad chrome in either aluminum, or Brass. (~ $3500 to $4500 respectively) already chromed. The brass is nicer but *heavy* (North Georgia fella); the aluminum is very decent but doesn't fit perfectly (or so I'm told) but neither did the originals fit perfectly and tightly to the fender...

    If anyone needs a set, let me know by PM and I'll put you in touch with a good deal.
