    Originally named Fairmont Squire. In Mexico, where's she's from, they don't have Mercury Zephyr. Instead they call them Fairmont Elite. All the Zephyr trim and base car things like 4 eyed headlights.

    Now my Squire has 4 eyes, and reclining bucket seats (1984 LTD), cougar like grille, 1981 Mercury Capri console, 1985 Mustang instruments (all gauges and tachometer, and the 180 KMP speedometer).

    I made my own stainless steel header (aftermarket headers for an inline 6 won't fit under a fox-body hood, with A/C.)

    And now that she has better torque with just the header modification. I thought I'd rename it "Fairelli" with some Italian script like that 'other brand'.

    So I wondered if a 3d printer could mold up a couple hard plastic scripts that I could stick on the tailgate and hood.:rofl:

    NORMAN!!!!!!!!!!! (Sorry, gotta shout!)

    SO good to hear from you. Hope all is well with your family.......

    Instead of a 3D printer, I would think something done by a CNC machine would turn out better...... I'll bet there's somebody in Winnipeg that can do it.
    Doesn't have to be metal for a CNC to do it, either. Wood and plastic can be done.

    Don't know if you've seen this guy's You Tube channel, but he's quite talented.... has a CNC machine, used for wood, mostly.
    His name is Frank Howarth, and he's right here in Oregon.....

    I'd see about getting it cut using ultra-high pressurized water. I don't know what you call this process in English, though:



    Hmmm.... 4 eyes (acronym for bi-focals) usually accompanies aging. A Cougar is a phrase used for an aging woman chasing young guys and they speak a hybrid form of Spanish, down there. How about Robacuna Vieja, for starters?

    Damned shame. There used to be a couple companies that made I-6 headers specifically for the Fox platform back in the Nineties. Anyway, there are a few ways you can go, but the best-looking for the cheapest price is how it should be done.

    This is all that's missing:





    Don't pay any attention to this guy. It seems, he's just trying to sell paint, re-built carbs and magnetos:



    This is the real deal:

    Waterjet cutting. I think a laser would probably do a better job, but you would have to polish the sides that the laser cut through.
