GT/CS Dash Emblems

What's the story on the C/S dash emblems advertised on E-bay? The ad says Paul Newitt came up with these, limited production. Never heard of them.

When Paul makes up the new ones that go with the books, he can sell the emblems and package them safely in a 200+ page, hardbound shipping container.

Neil,
Paul did make them, but made more than "10" as he states in the ebay add.

The long emblem fits over the Mustang emblem on the dash panel above the glove box, and the smaller emblem fits on the steering wheel, for the small one you need the center pad from a '68 cougar (or 68 shelby) and replace the standard '68 mustang center pad.

Hi Robert, I Was Mad That The Pieces Were Taken Off E-bay In The Middle Of The Sale. How Does That Happen???? They Do Look Cool In Our Cars, Sold In 96 I Believe.

eBay seems to give merchants so many "outs". Guess he sold it locally. Maybe we can have another run made? Ill want mine blinged out..or at least chromed.

Anyone has a picture of one or both emblems installed? What are the dimensions of these emblems?

I saw this auction.

But I would like to see them installed, giving a better perspective (sizewise) of the fit on the steering wheel and dash bezel. Also getting the dimensions would be great.

Thanks
