Re: Hood badge ID please

A GTC uses a flat badge. Maybe someone can look at their car and report: curved or flat? and what car. It is a nice badge, I’d like to get it into the right hands. The badge on my 330 GT S2 is curved. It's kind of hard to see the curve with the reflection of the paint, but if you look at it from a ...

Re: Hood badge ID please

Thank you, yes the 1960 looks the closest. What about the curved back? By eye, it looks roughly the same curve as mine, but no way to know for sure. In most brands, the same badge fits all cars. Without thinking about it much, I've always assumed it was the same for Ferrari, but looking at how curv...

Re: Hood badge ID please

Is this a 330 GT hood badge? It measures 35 x 59.75.36209D8F-429B-48DB-8753-EFDC3F919ED8.jpeg4E3F53C4-DE26-45CF-BB61-D668B724B09F.jpegB4056BAA-5961-4ECA-8BFF-6E4107CEB91C.jpegB7D5F3CF-EF28-4408-903E-EC0B86B263A1.jpeg I think from the museum photos, yours seems to match the 1960 version best, so it ...

Re: Hood badge ID please

Here are photos from the Enzo Ferrari museum in Modena that show badge variations over the years. Sorry for low quality iPhone photos, but hopefully they will help identify your badge:

Re: Horn Detailing

I hate to post a negative comment, but I believe the pump body should be wrinkle black. Period photos show that Fiamm produced the pump in both black and silver, but I suspect car manufacturers would choose pump body color based upon how it would blend in its factory mounting position. The rationale...

Re: Dash restoration

I believe it is teak. Hopefully more people will chime in to confirm or correct that assertion.

Re: Dash restoration

Beautiful car. Teak is very durable wood, which is why they use it on boats where it is heavily exposed to the elements (sun and salt water). All teak gets dried out over time so that it looks horrible, but it usually will go back to looking like new with proper cleaning and application of oil. I wo...

Re: Gauge lighting

I spent a while last night trying to find warm white instrument lights. They are NOT easy to find because there there are several important criteria that need to be met. My experience with LED's is that it is impossible to know for sure if they work for an intended application until you try them, bu...

Re: Gauge lighting

Once you get out of standard hi-volume LEDs, the range of temperatures available diminish to one or two. There is not enough market to have a choice of multiple temperatures. When I looked at these bulbs a few years ago, there was only the bright white bulbs. Hopefully as LEDs become that standard,...
