Hi guys

As a part of GT parts I am lunching soon in the next months
I have made the GT door panels

My question

The door panel have a brass Bezel for the leather strap
I have recreated this bezel to org. specs its made out of brass

on the 2nd picture ( no idea why the pix got mixed up :-)

On the top you can see a org bezel
the row of 6 bezelĀ“s are mine reproduction , they are acid dipped to get the Patina look as original.

on the 3rd row on the left, I have tried to zinc one in black but it got some purple /black gasolin colors that the zinc method leaves

on right side is the raw brass one

My question is ,in what finish do I make these
I have search for a way to get these black
paint is not a option
you cant anodize brass

Or are the Patina ones good enough !

this is the finish I have seen on org cars

looking forward to hear your guys input



Marek

Patina it is now, it absolut got the most correct look

powder coat was not a option due to the paint cracked very easy

Will have the GT door panels ready soon
will come complete incl leather strap :-)

Stay tune
