    I thought I better post this here as the Classified section is slow to upload.

    Recreate your own Factory style Turbo Rocket Fluid filter. You need to watch E-bay or other NOS parts sellers and purchase new-old stock AC model GF-61 filters; same as the GF-91 with 5/16 fuel lines ~ only without the TRF wording. Also useable are the GF-61-P filter however their tube size is 1/16” larger at 3/8” – since they couple with rubber tubes you can make them work. (see photo for the size difference of tubes) I am selling a pair of stencils with complete instructions including shipping for $25.00 USD. PayPal or mail a check – Sandy Gray sandygray2018@gmail.com If you want a different quantity, just ask!
    Hope this video link works for a good look at the finished filter! https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ar1CGnoOThJagog0BMprVg_G1gUmhA?e=Q0Qd09

    Found a paint color that looks like a perfect or very close match for the filter lettering. I went to the hobby store and matched it up. It’s Testors Gloss Bright Red 1231. Competition Orange was too orange. Gloss red was too red.

    Excellent, Thank you Oaklyss! Is that an original filter or one you did with the stencil kit?

    That’s the filter I just did with your stencil kit. Works great! The photo shows the filter on photos of an original filter and next to my original filter.
    The only difference is the thickness of the arrow. The stencil arrow’s shaft is slightly thinner.

    Very nice! I will pick that color up myself. I still need to do mine but will likely wait till I am closer to done with the car.

    Well then: How did we miss that! That would be an easy fix for my daughter too. DANG!
    Perfection is a difficult thing to chase! Hubby beside me just commented – A blind man on a fast horse . . . . . he is obviously not as fussy as I am.
