Bill from CJs here with Scott Drake who’s going to tell us a little bit about his ’65 gas cap.
Scott Drake: What a great way to update and enhance the look of the rear end of your car. On the right hand side is mine and on the left hand side is an original Ford product. As you can see it’s just a beautiful part and it updates the back of the car. I often say we don’t make auto parts, we make jewelry and this is an example of it.
The ’65 gas cap lens, I’ll start with that. We paint them in house. It starts as a piece of plastic injection, clear acrylic lens, and we have masks that allow us to paint every color. In this case we have four masks. We pain the red, we paint the white, we paint the blue, and we paint the black. Everything that we don’t paint, later what we do with the clear lens or the lens we send to a vacuum metallizer. They stick it into a vacuum chamber and they explode an aluminum grenade and that’s what creates the chrome plated finish on everything that’s not painted.
It comes back to us and we spray a protective coating on the back and that’s how you do back coated 3D decorative work, like our hubcaps or many of our gas caps that we make. It’s a process that’s very labor intensive. They no longer really do this type of work in Detroit, but we have mastered the technique and I believe we make the best gas cap out there. Die cast construction, black paint for the Ford, red paint for the Mustang, all approved by Ford Motor Company. It’s a licensed product approved by Ford. It has original security cable in the back. The venting mechanism is all correct. A nylok nut so that it’s secured to the taillight panel. Ask for Scott Drake by name.
