    Default Repairing Nomex gloves?

    Does anyone know where I can get a pair of very new Sparco Nomex gloves restitched? The thread pulled out on a 1/2 inch piece along the thumb.

    Need them pristine for Chumpcar tech inspection.

    I have some blue nomex thread if you want - you can get them restitched anywhere i think, but technically you need that nomex thread.

    Thanks Shawn. I'll see if someone pipes in with white thread, (gotta look pretty!). I'm guessing that anyone with a sewing machine can fix them with the right thread.

    I'll be in touch, and thanks for the offer.

    Fantastic, thanks for the link. 100 yards on a spool, I can get my Mom to sew me an entire suit!

    Hi Shawn, I think I'll take you up on the offer of the blue thread if it's still okay. What's the best way for me to get it from you?

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.
