The top of the fins are not painted. After painting I cleaned the tops off with some solvent and there was no need to polish.

" The ribs on a shaker scoop are painted argent. Some folks paint the shaker semi-gloss black then sand the ribs clean, but that's not accepted by MCA judging if that's a concern. "

Adhesive? I have not seen or read anywhere that the seal requires adhesive. My fire damaged original came off easily, and the repop stays put without any adhesive. But my way of doing this wouldn't be the first thing I've done wrong.

Yeah....my shaker base has an adhesive residue on the "vertical skirt surface" . But maybe I do need to glue the seal back on.

My original seal was glued.  To use glue or not is, of course, up to you.  The shaker seal you chose to use will be a factor.  The original and the correct reproductions will need to be glued.  The Drake, made by Carpenter, and many of the incorrect reproductions may not require an adhesive.  Search ' shaker seal ' for discussions about the seal.  Brian

Before I do any damage, do the Cobra Jet badges pry off or is there a trick to it?

Brian....my shaker had the same type of glue marks along the base. It also appears you have the same style seal as my original.....which is NOT tampered height wise (between the yellow lines I added). I have bought 2 "original Ford tooled" shaker seals and they both have tapered sidewalls along the side indicated by the yellow lines. What gives? The glue marks show the original seal was even all the way around.
