Those appear to be ultimate. Wouldn't want the 5.0 either on all the caps (unless I had the 6 cyl. w/GT badging of coarse). I like the blue myself (reminds me "Ford") and the open hood contrast.

Weren't the engine compartments all black also through the 60's? And again that vibrant blue.Attached File  image.jpeg   146.65KB   0 downloads So to sum up, our engine compartments are painted that unique same color as the car but just plain primer left on the underneath:(

Those are very nice dress-up caps. I like your idea of getting them without the 5.0 and agree with rich that I wouldn't want that on there either. 

 

But you did give me an idea of blacking out the lettering on my Roush caps. It would be like ghost lettering. I have a spare cap I may try it out on.

New coolant overflow tank is on. That is so nice compared to the stock one, which doesn't seem to age very well, now I was able to take a good look at it. What were they thinking at Ford?

That's exactly what I've done on my shock tower caps. Black sharpie.

I would take the brushed silver or black but NO BRANDING and no 5.0!  Gaud, reminds me of my Shelby days!   Just how many f-ing places do you need to have "Shelby" just make it stop!

I like the Roush caps but would have been just as happy without his name on my caps.

Indeed, the paying attention to and meticulous detail is an attributation to ownership. I would do it myself especially the early days with all the cheap chrome engine part add ons and cover ups. Would usually rust or fall off within the year, especially the chrome lug nut caps and those exhaust tips, forget it.

In these times the items are of superior quality, better ideas and certainly not inexpensive. I myself would go with many of these but my only setback is from the past. I had many add ons I paid good money for (even tubing headers) and after being on the car a few years wasn't about to try and replace and take the time involved to sell separately. Who would want a 2nd hand set of headers, pipes and so forth, never recoup! The OEM exhaust was on its way out when I replaced with headers, this was a '67 Fastback in '69 now. Besides, nobody kept all that OEM junk when they replaced with Hollywood Accessories was it lmao.

So with summation, I could of done nicely without any extras, saved a bunch of money and aggravation, could of put to way better use and nobody cared, period. Learned my lesson, naw. But everytime I buy, always think of lessons learned (guess not completely). Everything, including the car is making a very nice deal for the next owner when it is well done and taken care of. Depreciation factor, all desirables done (as axlebacks) and other, maybe supercharged. The work and expense is already buffered before they even buy...... Now there's the good deal for buyer, seller moves on $.

Well too, never bought a next identical car you could save and reuse any of that stuff on, perhaps a justification for initial purchase of any extras, I would get my money's worth? Anyhow my car is really lasting, the best days are here not yet to come. So I'm being selective with my purchases.

Perfect example: Our OEM intakes are too dense for heat saturation which could actually increase air intake temperature. Wraps are made for headers, turbocharger plumbing and cold air intakes. Just for looks but I bought these stretchy Ford blue intake socks you install on the intake tube. Heat and fire proof, so you open the hood and see this sleeved blue (contrasted) intake on the motor. No seams showing but I did have to use 2 with that sound cancellation box there. Reminds me of the painted matching intakes you see in photos. Mine serves a purpose (theory only) or could, cost me nothing compared to the car color matched ones. Which l don't know, not into interior decorating color coordination too much. It's a hobby, pastime and not to overdo I suppose is my intention.
