GTHO race car lights

Does anyone know what is used to cover the lights on the XW/XY race cars?
I dont know whether or not they've just been painted or if they're actually covers.
Heres a pic i found of one.

I would have to agree, it looks like tape. Probably from one of the original rolls of 100 mph tape!

Re: GTHO race car lights

That stuff definately looks like some kinda tape or contact, if you look at some other racing Falcons of the period they used to place a cross of black tape across the headlights. It was a very common thing in racing to hold the glass together incase of damage from a stone etc. If you look at the original HO's many of them came with wire mesh guards over the lights.

Yep its a great site Fordy. We owe David Bowden so much for keeping an incredible range of our motor racing heritage alive and in excellent condition.

I reckon Moffat's 69 Mustang is in better condition now than when I first saw it in 1972 at Warwick Farm.

Good luck with what you are doing.
