Re: GTS Judging details

Tom, thanks for the details on the judging sheets and what you did to correct them. My partner Tom and I focus on doing our restorations for clients with a similar eye to the details - thus appreciated your insight. To do a car to this level takes a lot of patience and multiple tries thru judging t...

Re: How I grew to love Copiglia band clamps (not)

For both Cheney and Copligia clamps, when starting with new hoses, I suggest assembling and putting the clamp loosely on the hose. Then use a good stainless-steel screw clamp that is narrower than the proper clamp. After a month or two, the hose will be tightly stuck to the fitting. Then remove the ...

Re: Top Light 250 GTE

Hi Tom - yes, LEDs seem to be a much less risky way forward. And they seem to last forever too. You can even get a choice of colour, by which I mean a really white light or a yellowish tint. I don't mean anything too wild - green, red(!), blue etc. Personally I think a yellowish tint would be a goo...

Re: Keys for Locks

Kerry - as usual, very thorough info.....thanks so much for the time you put into the various articles. Also - how did you make the little copper or brass plugs for the trunk lock? I need to do the same for my Ellena locks. I probably used a brass machine screw that I filed down until I got the rig...

Re: 330 Fuel pickup filter: Source?

Hi guys, No I don't own a 330, or an F-car for that matter, but I do have an Espada and the commonality of parts, assembly techniques and the general 'ethos' of the car is very similar to the Ferrari cars of the era so this blog and forum has been immensely helpful to me; thank you Tom and all. On ...

Re: Sheet metal screws through firewall and footwell. Correct?

Hi Guys, ...The floorpans are double layered, so rarely do you see a screw poking through. ... Tom The later (interim and series 2) 330 GTs have a fiberglass floor. The carpet snap screws go through and stick out underneath. I've never scarred my hands on them, but if I ever do, I'm sure that the c...

Re: Sheet metal screws through firewall and footwell. Correct?

From my experience, Pininafarina (body maker) used metal plates that were spot welded or riveted to the backside of the piece that the screw fastens to: SplashShield12_small[1].JPG The plate was typically about 1/8" thick and had a machine screw thread (usually 4 or 5mm) tapped in the middle. If the...

Re: How to do the black oxide deal (long)

Tho’ I didn’t want to use aluminum foil, I did make a trough to blacken the long throttle rod to which the throttle acuators clamp. Items like long rods can be done using a piece of PVC pipe of sufficient diameter and length. Glue on a cap on one end, fill it with the solution and put the item in f...

Re: Trunk latch

According to the PF body part book, the trunk latch was changed with the interim model. So not a series 1 vs. 2, but 4sp/OD vs. 5sp model.

Re: Trunk latch

The latch looks to be the correct one. New rubber seal? If so, it takes a while to compress. You can adjust both the latch (pictured) and the bar, where the latch hooks, that can be raised up. On my 330, with new rubber, I have to press firmly under the latch button to get it to latch. And this is a...

Re: New member with 365 gt 2+2

I'm actually in the process of getting the wheels painted and new tires on my 330. So I pulled out the old putty knife I modified many years ago to remove my trim rings.
