Ferrari 330GTC Bodywork Progress

April 11, 2021


I stopped by the Panel Shop in Stratford CT to check up on the progress of the bodywork and drop off some more parts to check for fit.

It’s coming along nicely, but the devil is in the details. It always amazes me the disconnect between what you see on TV and the speed something gets done with the reality of time it takes to do things right. There are two ways to explain this disparity. Either there is an army of people working on these cars when the cameras are not rolling, or the quality of work is compromised by taking short cuts for the benefit of getting a car done in time for television. I would tend to go with the latter since I know the priority of a TV show is how it looks for the cameras, and not the quality of the actual work! What do you think?
