    Default Racing Strops

    I remembered a post sometime back of strops being made from car racing harnesses. So my Commander races BMW's on the weekends and I asked if he had any old harnesses I could buy from him to make into strops for my razors. Long story short I got a bunch some were new in the box. He explained to me that he had a stock of them and when rules changed the new in box ones couldn't be used. I will add pic's to this post ASAP. I cannot see how I could use all of this material, as I only need enough to make 3 strops. So if any of you racing fans would like some of this stuff send me a PM.

    That may have been my post here that you remember. I have a friend who works for Roush Racing and they have to replace the shoulder harness after so many hours or maybe miles. The stuff works pretty well as a fabric component.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
