Re: Bonnet Question

So, if you have both the "snail" springs and the prop, and your hood does not stay up w/o the prop... is there a fix? Thanks. john I was just talking to Ed this weekend about questions that no one answers, and this might be one of them! I've never tried disassembling one of these. They are probably...

Re: Bonnet Question

I've learned not to be definitive with Ferrari, but I can safely say that GTEs have two coil springs wound like a snail on both lower corners of the hood that should have enough tension to hold the hood up. The prop rod is to hold the hood up as a supplement. SI 330s have a similar set up, but SII 3...

Re: Fuel line clamps on 330 GTC

If you're going to use black rubber hose, I would highly recommend using some high quality hose instead of the cheap stuff from the auto parts store. Some of the hose, especially out back by the fuel pump, can see some high heat from the mufflers, and you risk a fire when the hose gets hot. The chea...

Re: 330 GT grille

Hi Clint, 1200 grit? You may want to go to 2400. You may still see fine scratches in the aluminum after polishing if the sanding process is too coarse. Buff one piece and see how it looks. Wear a good dust mask that seals to your face. That particulate matter from the buffing is not good for your lu...

Hi All, hi Tom,

what color would the binding originally be. Same color as carpet? My carpet will be red. Would red binding be right ?

Thanks
Christopher
Yes, red binding would probably be correct.

Re: Finish of External water pipes on a 250 GTE?

Hi Christopher,

I believe several suppliers have these, some of them made in original steel, while others have made them in stainless steel. The biggest thing to check it the heater hose orientation. I think GTO has them.

Re: Hood release handle mechanism

The original bracket was pretty crude, but it looks like the part of the bracket that held the pivot broke off. I can try to take more detailed pictures if you need it.

Re: Re-Engraving logo on Borrani spinners

Hi Christopher, I feel new Borranis are stronger than the original ones because the rims are supposedly drawn from a single piece of aluminum, while the originals were welded hoops, but I've never seen a failure of an old wheel. Unless one of my customers was racing the car, or the original one was ...

Re: Hood release handle mechanism

Hi Jumprun, You're in luck! I just photographed this handle for another GTC owner this week. IMG_0526.jpg I was more focused on how the cable is attached to the handle in this picture so I cropped off the whole knob in this picture, but I think you get the idea. How the cable connects to the rod is ...

Re: Re-Engraving logo on Borrani spinners

Hi Chris, Contact Ryan at http://brightworkrestoration.com/ He took over the restoration of Borrani wheels from Cork Adams who used to own Precision Wire Wheel Service. He should have patterns to re-engrave the spinners. I tend to believe Borrani would rather sell you new wheels and knock offs than ...

Re: Steering wheel

Hi Clint,

Good job!

Wait until you put your son to work polishing those wire wheels. Those little fingers come in handy!
