And, my Mopar B-body, AKA a Super Bee, has a fold-down license tag.

Yes, the spare tire winch may get in the way of a rear tank, but I don't plan on a rear tank initially and doubt I'll ever need...

I'm not planning on a border. The 84-86 HO's didn't have one from what I've seen. They just had the lettering painted on the raised area of the lid, as shown in my 2D drawing above. I'll contact...

Well, I have the text set to "2 inch" in TurboCAD, but using Verdana the "H" measures 1.21" across. Does the "2 inch" include the distance between characters? If so, that probably comes to 2".

I did the same thing, but used "5.8" to compare to Chris' label. My wife, the designer, picked out the "r" pretty quickly, but agreed all else is very close.

That 6.6 Liter 4V H.O. looks pretty...

Wow! I think you found something that's plenty close enough. And, while the label from NPD doesn't match it as well, who knows if it is true to the font Ford used. But, what you found is really...

Chris - Thanks. The font looks the same on that label, but the air cleaners I've been around just have the lettering and no border. So that's what I'm going for.

Jim - Kerning. Had to look...

More progress on the air cleaner. You may remember that I'm joining Tulsa FabLab and will cut the lettering for the top of the cleaner. Here's what the 5.8L HO's air cleaner lettering looks like...

It will be quite satisfying if it works as planned, that's for sure. And, I learned a lot about 3D drawing as well.

I forgot. I think we have a difference of opinion here. I thought "pro" means the participant gets paid. Just ask the NFL. In this case the participant did the paying - with bruises on his head,...

Yes, it is hard to believe the Ford ICVR ever worked. The key is in the fact that the gauges work from heat. But, when you throw an 8.5 ohm resistor between the ICVR and the battery and impose a...

I don't think the 503/507 and 473/475 #'s were on the American-made Weiand. I believe those were taken using the Chinese Weiand, but we need Tim to confirm that.

As for finding an American-made...

I've met him. Wasn't impressed. Seemed kinda old to me, and I'm always sceptical of those old people. What do they know about computers? Probably better off with a drafting table, pencil, and paper.
