  1. Hey guys, I’ve purchased one of the eBay chrome inserts for the 4 speed auto shifter knob on my BFmk3 and NFI how to get the old one off??? I can see there is a screw inside underneath holding it in but can’t work out how to get in there. If anyone has replaced there’s and has some advice for me that would be greatly appreciated. I posted I Ford forums and got a reply to remove the shifter button, but I’m worried I’m starting to damage the leather trying to leaver out from the top. any ideas?

    I wonder how he'd go with getting the esp gold colour? I've already bought two cans of the gold paint from global trim too.

    Thanks for the reply gerg. I don't think i'll bother clear coating the polished lips i'll just leave them and polish regularly.

    Got a few questions for those with more experience than I. What's the best way to go about stripping the snowies, sand blasting, soda blasting, or something else? Also what primer is best to use on the alloy? I'll pick up some plastic primer for the new caps. What clear coat do people recommend to finish over the gold? And paint first, machine lips second is the way to go yeah?

    What about an on car pic from a bit of distance? So what were they originally ea or xe/f ghia? Also is it just the angle/light or is the paint colour slightly different on the caps and wheels?

    Sorry Dale, are you saying the repro caps don't actually sit flush on some genuine esp wheels? Or that even the original ford caps did not sit flush on some of the wheels?
