91+ Octane Decal

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure this topic might have been covered in the past, I just thought I'd pass along some current information.

 

Anyways, my 10+ year old fuel door decal was looking pretty shabby. Doing some research I found out that Tasca Ford was able to special order new ones, I bought 2 for a total of around $25 shipped ($9 S&H). I wish I would have started a thread to see if anyone else was interested and I would have purchased more to share the cost of the shipping, oh well....

 

Here are some before and after pictures, I couldn't save the original and needed to use WD40 to remove the residue. The original decal was a bit too large for the space available, so I placed the new one differently to see if it will hold up better.

That is not some sooper dooper ultra rare sticker that is unique to the GT500. That tag is as common as dirt and has been used on multiple Ford vehicles for well over a decade. Yeah, you can buy it from Ford..or Tasca,…..or about 100 other places online ………….      $9.00 shipping and handling. As John Carson once said. There is a number higher than infinity…….its infinity plus shipping and handling………….if mine ever goes bad I am not going to lighten my wallet to replace it. If I ever did decide it was important enough to replace.......... I  will scan it and rip one out on an HP printer. Bets of luck to those who want to pay $25 for a couple of 2 cent tags.

mrh1961....

You're correct, Ford used these on a few cars, not sure about the GT500's. All I was trying to do is provide information to my fellow SGT/GT-H owners since these were added to the car at SAI in Vegas due to the tunes being done there.

 

The decal's list for around $15 ea on the Ford parts websites, Tasca by far had the lowest price and was willing to special order them. So yes, $25 was a bit steep for two decals, but I wanted to keep my car as close to original as possible. You must have plenty of time on your hands to be able to reproduce a factory decal at will, I look forward to seeing your work, please post up pictures once you do.

No problem. I realize some people want to maintain “originality”, and it was nice of you to post where you found the best price on a tag. As far as time on my hands,  it only takes about 2 minutes to scan and print a tag. I already have a .pdf  file that I will use whenever mine goes bad. So far after 10+  years mine is still good. Happy motoring.
