Would anybody know the wheel silver RAL code for the early GT 10” Rostyles please? Sending some for powder coating and want them to look right. Thanks

From the new old stock examples I've seen the colour varied... This is a photo of the one off my car that was the spare (and therefore never repainted). Interestingly the back of it is still factory primer - so only the front and sides were ever painted

What would be the original diff ratio for a rod change GT box ?

Did it change by wheel size ?

3.65:1 was used on commission numbers S20D 101 to 5759.

3.44:1 was used on commission numbers S20D 5760 to 14921.

Not all remotes are were 3.65:1, but all rod boxes were 3.44:1.


Also it did not change with the wheel size as that did not change until commission number S20D 19416A
