No your right saying that Andrew , Rob and myself laughed as the ford grill badges were all different blues . But I sat for ages trying to peel the front off even used a watchmakers magnifier to look :lol:

Hi Jason,
I've just checked on the CCI website and it states in the description that they "produced in plastic - print silver and grey to give original look".

It's funny that Andy's CCI ones are blue though.

Andrew.

Yes I went on to eBay looking at the capris for sale and they look more blue , like saying here’s some blueberry pie and it’s got a hint of green because that’s how the mother in law makes it .
:roll: :lol: :lol: :roll:

In Steve’s new book I never see this mention about the wheels . Perhaps he missed a bit out :lmao:





Page 178 does say ford said “ The pinto engine was the best engine in the world “

If you zoom in on the pic of my wheel, they are grey too which is how the originals were apparently.

The ones on my original wheels looked exactly like the ones you have. Was missing one, so bought a set off Ian, you wont be dissapointed if you have his (and they're blue :D ) . Good luck.

They do look good.
Even if blue isn't the correct colour for these badges, they definitely look better than the grey ones.

Andrew.
