As you all probably know Ford discontinued the wheel centres for the optional lightweight BBS multispoke wheels some time ago.
We see a lot of cars with corrosion under the clear lacquer so have been looking for a solution.

We now have had replacements produced in the UK - these have been tooled up to be faithful replicas of the originals.
They are supplied as just the outer emblem - you'll need to pry the old ones off the plastic centre with a flat blade screwdriver and fit these by bending the eight tags over.

We're selling them as a set of four as it doesn't make sense to ship individual pieces.

We've added them to our online store so you can order direct from here: https://gt101.store/collections/ford-gt/products/wheel-centre-emblem-set

We've also listed a few other GT parts online now such as our sway bar bushes and dust boots.
Any questions just let me know.

Those look great. Is anyone redoing the steering wheel center cap anymore? Mine has a bit of corrosion as do most of the originals. I know Shelby at Elite used to redo them, but don't know if they still do.

I have the same steering wheel emblem on mine. Looks great.

BTW - what are those water bottle bottle holders? Mine has a little pop up one Xentric attached to the side of the tunnel, but the bottle touches my leg at times and I rarely use it.

Aren’t those Stormcat’s ultra-limited edition water bottle holders?

That is correct. StormCat made very limited numbers in fiberglass and carbon fiber. Have never seen any for sale. They really only hold bottles and not cups.

We are talking to the same supplier about having these made too…

My very first upgrade!

Use the crap out of them.

Thanks again to my buddy Frank for introducing me to Brian at my first rally!

Here is a post I did for a cup holder https://www.fordgtforum.com/forums/threads/05-06-gt-cup-holder.36685/ . Not nearly as cool as Stormcat's but does the job.

Can you please get Stormcat to do another production run or maybe pass the tooling on to someone who would?

In the early 90's, I made tooling to cast a front timing cover for a 385 series big block. It was to make swapping your Ford into a BBC powered boat. Drag racers liked them for solid mounting allowing tons of header space. I sold around 500 of them over the course of 10 years.

I lost interest, but some guys still wanted them so I got the tooling to someone who would carry the torch. He sold several hundred more, and I think still makes runs from time to time.

Just saying.
