Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

IMG_1096.JPG Hi AD, The original pistons on these calipers were steel with a industrial chrome plating on them which has rusted around the seal. When they get a light mark on them, you can sometimes polish them and reuse them, but for the cost and trouble of taking them out again, I would just buy ...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Congratulations! I think driving the car with varying rpms will do a better job at breaking in the engine. If it starts, I would make sure you store it in a dry place and not run it too long just sitting. Rings need to get hot and bearings need to be run at different rpms to break in properly. Idlin...

Re: radiator repair; what else do I attend to?

thanks tom--- I brazed today after cleaning the pipe and it came out good.. only 3 small micro perforations to deal with. I like the coating idea for my car. My radiator is OK but have great radiator people here so will get it cleaned and pressure tested after repairing the fill funnel. It doesn't ...

Re: radiator repair; what else do I attend to?

Hi Michael, Depending on how thin and corroded this pipe is how I would approach the repair. The part is supposed to be nickel plated, so after your repair, with braze or welding, you can have the part plated. I've also had these pipes ceramic coated for non concours cars to help keep the steel from...

Re: flushing the AC system on a GTC

I think you need to ask an A/C guy. The system is no different than what was found on any other car of that era, but the fittings, gauges, and vacuum pumps are with a guy who works with A/C systems. I hate messing with A/C!

Re: Painting a V12 engine

I'm not a fan of clear coat on engine parts. As it ages, some clear coats will yellow. Not good!

Re: rocker panel trim end shapes

Hi Guys, Stainless steel trim pieces are tricky to restore. Depending on how deep the scratches are material has to be filed or ground away, and then sanded and buffed to a shine. Remove too much material, and the pieces become too thin to buff and polish. This takes A LOT OF TIME! It's a great proj...

Re: Bumper rechrome costs

Are you sure about those numbers or is there some extremely unusual features on these bumpers ? Surely they must be something much more complicated than found on Ferraris. For past 20+ years I've used a plating service that's been around almost 100 years and has been supplying countless Pebble Beac...

Re: Bumper rechrome costs

Hi Mark, I'm starting to take offense when people throw around the word "Pebble Beach" quality chrome everywhere! There are a few shops that actually do "Pebble Beach" quality, but most other shops just say they do! I'd say 95% of the world wouldn't know the difference anyway, an...
