Filtering out the details: Making a period correct looking Fram oil filter

While there are no concours point deductions for the use of modern service items such as oil filters we still wanted our Dino to look factory fresh and that included fitting the correct Fram Carello oil filter.

Of course these have not been available for decades so we re-painted and re-labeled a modern oil filter to look like the original.

A small detail that made the engine bay look all the more authentic.

    1. We will likely not make these available as it is much too much work and time to make them cost effectively. Maybe a decal with the same info but not a printed filter.
