Looking for Rack ends

I'm looking for the mounting ends like the ones pictured below. I can't seem to find them. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks. He doesn't list them on his website. I'll drop him a line and ask how much they are and if they are available.

I always thought that the evt ends would make for an expensive rack. There is a picture of one on his flickr stream, i thought he used to have them on the website

Paragon also sells rack ends:

Yeah, I got some ends from Eric at Winter. They are basically just a tab with a hole in the end, so the tubing has to be slotted. Well worth the price though, making a tab like that takes some time. I tried to talk him into stainless ends, but haven't heard anything about that. Now that I don't have an easy source of powder coat, stainless racks make a lot more sense to me
