    FORD G.T. Steering Wheel Center Cap Font

    Thanks Andrew I did receive your PM along with its generous offer. Not sure what happened to my reply I must have forgotten to press the send. One of the few good things about being 70 is I can now hide my own Easter eggs. Hopefully I'll remember long enough to send you a PM with my address...

    FORD G.T. Steering Wheel Center Cap Font

    Charlie I was sorry to see your post. First I'd like to say it was never my intent to rip anyone off. All I asked for was pictures and other information about the original Ford G. T. steering wheel center cap. The pictures and other information I've posted were either of original parts or CAD...

    FORD G.T. Steering Wheel Center Cap Font

    Again thanks. The sad part is somewhere on a shelf sits the mold for these or in some landfill. I wonder if these were made by Ford or sub contracted out to someone in England. Is there anyone that has enough of the paperwork from back then to tell? In the before time I was a tool and die make...

    FORD G.T. Steering Wheel Center Cap Font

    Otto thanks so for your help. Can you give me one last picture. A closeup picture of the back. Also if it's possible measure from the back how deep the letters and the crescents are. Again thanks for the help. It's people like you that makes endeavors like this possible.

    FORD G.T. Steering Wheel Center Cap Font

    Thanks a lot, you don't happen to still have the center cap out? A few measurements would really help in making my canter cap as close to original as possible.

    FORD G.T. Steering Wheel Center Cap Font

    Thanks for the reply. I've worked off and on for some time to do a few things. First I'd like to make a reasonable center cap for my car. I know I can buy one but at $250 ouch. Second maybe make some CNC or 3D printed plaques. My current CNC router can do about 1' x 1' and my printer will do...

    rust proof

    These cars will rust just as fast as the cars built back in the 60's, how's that for originality? Hi, I did extensive weather "proofing" of my car and I'm glad I did. Did it make it water tight, not possible! On my first road trip my right shoe filled with water from the ducts in the front clip...

    FORD G.T. Steering Wheel Center Cap Font

    Anyone out there know what font was used in the design of the steering wheel center cap? It's not the same one they used on the side of the car.

    Heavy shifting > RBT with cable shift and Olthoff shifter upgrade

    Thanks Neil I'll give them a call. I have a ZFQ transaxle and a Olthoff shifter upgrade. The cable that goes over the top always seemed 2 or so inches to short and the geometry of the shifter arm a little off because of it. Thanks again.

    Heavy shifting > RBT with cable shift and Olthoff shifter upgrade

    After putting up with very heavy shifting for years I finally pulled the cables out and found them to be the problem. Almost impossible to move them by hand. The car was well out of warranty by the time I got it running. I started building a rod shifter but the project is currently stalled. As...

    Roof Vent Weather Proofing by Richard Woerz

    Sorry Tony I haven't been on for some time. I found some pictures that should answer your question. I ended up with something very different than what I originally posted. What the car came with would have leaked water into the cabin plus I wanted to mount a camera to the bottom side. It's 7" x...

    Great news about the progress. Looking forward to seeing it finished. Might have to cross the pond to see it in person. I'm still hoping someone can come up with the paint code for the blue on P1049. My car is currently Porsche Midnight Blue which it turns out is black 80% of the time. Not...

    RHD Shift Linkage

    I think I'm good for now thanks for the offer. This thing has turned out to be harder than I thought. Mostly just no room to work.

    RHD Shift Linkage

    LHD Shift Linkage I posted this in the "Original GT40s" area but I might have better luck here with other SPF owners. Does anyone out there have pictures of their RHD shift linkage out of the car. How did SPF solve these problem? What does the spherical bearing look like installed in an SPF...

    #1049

    Update: it looks like it's also known as RAL 5003 Sapphire Blue. The problem is that's the solid color which doesn't help me when it comes to Flake and Pearl. I didn't get a reply from the restoration shop when I emailed them regarding the paint code they used. So if anyone knows someone there...
