1747: Brakes are Back, Finally!

Rear brakes

The PF coupe we’ve been working on has been on the back burner waiting for a few brake components to come back from the rebuilders and platers. With all the pieces back at the shop, I began assembling the brake parts to complete the brake system. The longest wait was for the brake booster, but it’s finally back and was installed in the engine compartment.  For eagle eye spotters, the knock off is not the right one for this car, as they should be back from the platers this week. The spare octogon knock off was used so we could roll the car around on the old tires. With every step the list of things left to do on this car is getting shorter and shorter!

I posted a couple of new things on this website that you may not have noticed. Jimmy Chen Shibs sent me some pictures of a new aquisition, as very nice 275GTB and you can see them in his owner’s gallery entry.

A new podcast was posted that I recorded with Jay Fontanella in his Testarossa about how he came about buying it. You can hear about it here.

Just a reminder, I’m looking for a new Vintage Ferrari Project. If you have, or know of a restoration project, please let me know. It would be great to restore another car on this website! My E-mail.
