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!

Re: Things to consider when mounting a 250 E engine

Hi Chris, The timing marks at PM 1/6 that line up the cams to marks on the front of the bearing stands were made when the engine was first timed in. You are correct, they're good reference points for assembling an engine, but immediately change when the timing chain stretches, or any surface is mach...

Re: Campy wheels - GT 2+2 and GTC

Greetings... Jimmy, if only that were true. A friend had a very nice 275GTB. All work done by very knowledgeable and respected shops. His goal was to get the car to platinum (and then drive it till it was tin). He has done just what you suggest, take the scoring sheet and had the "offenses" correct...

Re: Campy wheels - GT 2+2 and GTC

Hi Dyke, I often make the analogy that a judge is much like an umpire in a baseball game. If he makes a bad call, he cannot reverse it during a game because his judgement from then on will always be brought into question. That does not stop the manager of the offended team, however, from going out t...

Re: Campy wheels - GT 2+2 and GTC

Ed: Please don't take this post as a condemnation of what you are doing. I believe your approach for your client, who wants to show the car, is normal for today's Ferrari World. However, 330 wheels were never clear coated when new. Making a color and finish to be "what the judges like" is just so w...

Re: window fuzzy/wipers installation

Hi Ed, Considering you're working on an Ellena, and was a different body builder than the "normal" cars I've seen built by Pininfarina and Scaglietti, the way they attached the window felts might be different. In Pininfarina and Saglietti cars, I believe the felts were attached with a combination of...

Re: GTC toggle switch knobs

I have a couple of these round knobs, but not 6. I know someone makes these, and are available. I would start with Rutlands.

Re: How does the original Veglia Borletti clock for 250 Gte S3 look like?

Hi Chris, There are also two types, one is electro-mechanical, and the other one is purely mechanical. I would assume the SIII cars had the electro-mechanical ones where they are wound automatically with voltage. The purely mechanical clocks have a stalk that winds and sets the time and pokes throug...
