Question Q: Inspection paint markings?

Can someone tell me what sort of pen or marker was used on the Saleen bolt heads etc.

Hi Tony. I have a box of these paint sticks in the basement.

I can look in a few. I asked one of the Irvine production guys, "what did you use for the inspection markings?" Then I went an bought a box.

The product is known as "Torque Seal."

The stuff I purchased was sold by "Organic Products Company." This stuff may have been used on aircraft as well.

Organic Products Company
Item: F-900
Color: Yellow
Package: 0.5 oz tube


It was sold in a box of six tubes for $18.00 a box.

Hi Paul

I pulled the cover off the rear end to check what sort of final drive was in it, Saleen weren't sure they used a number of setups thankfully they put a Detroit True-Trac in the 08 Extremes. Was a good time to change diff oil.
Undoing the bolts on the Watts link I disturbed the factory paint marks and wanted to replicate them.
Dave was big help and I managed to find the Yellow Torque Seal in Victoria.
Haven't been able to run the Legend Lime car because all the racing has been put on hold.
We are still using and enjoying the Extreme and Brenda's PJ
How is your car going now ?

Hi Tony
Love you dedication , down to the smallest detail.
My car is sweet know I have had the body damage repaired. Its like new again.
I do have an annoying squeak since I got it back from the body shop.
Ill try and post a recording of the sound to see if someone like yourself would have an idea what it might be.
