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 email@example.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=Q0Qd09April 27, 2020 at 8:30 am #16700dr-jetParticipant
Well Done!!!May 9, 2020 at 8:27 pm #16767oaklyssParticipant
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.May 9, 2020 at 10:45 pm #16787
Excellent, Thank you Oaklyss! Is that an original filter or one you did with the stencil kit?May 9, 2020 at 11:08 pm #16788oaklyssParticipant
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.May 10, 2020 at 7:47 am #16789jensenracing77Participant
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.May 10, 2020 at 9:18 pm #16802
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.August 9, 2020 at 12:22 pm #17069
These TRF filters are not in any ‘schedule’ to replace as they flow so little TRF. The filter it self is actually a fuel filter – where it does filter hundreds of gallons of gas in a year so – yes, they do get replaced in that job. So what are you to do with the second stencil you got in the kit? You create your new favorite coffee mug! Truth be known, this was one of the early test stencils and is not ‘correct’ and I did a crappy job by pulling the stencil too early!
