Re: Painting "the car"

Hey David, Yes I did confirm that this was the original colour, we painted some test panels and compared them to cleaned and polished sections that we found during disassembly, and it all matched. All the research I did on paint color codes was really a time wasting exercise, all I really learned wa...

Re: Trim Pieces below the rockers

Hi Guy's,

So what I gather is:
1. These are a black satin finish, not polished like I see in most photos.
2. No one supplies the "T" head bolts, you gotta make em.

Good result - as always. Thanks for everyones input.

Regards,

Andrew.

Trim Pieces below the rockers

In a recent post Tom pulled the trim bits below the rocker panels off a GTE - these run each side of the car. I recently sent mine off to be straightend and polished. Couple of questions. Is a bright gloss polish anodising the correct finish. Anyone sourced/has available/made/saw once in a shop/ the...

Re: Painting "the car"

Hi everyone, got another question about painting the car. I am keen to find out what everyone thinks about the "places you don't see" on a vintage ferrari. Specifically the "satin black" painted parts. The current painters want to use a "stoneguard" product in the cabin as opposed to the regular fin...

Re: Photos needed of series 2 headlight surround

Thanks Zac, a few angles and dimentions would be great, we can see on the back of the ring where they are supposed to be, but both sides are missing. Body man needs them back from the chrome guy to fit prior to final primer. Corneilus, the photo is a bucket, I am looking for the detail on the chrome...

Re: Photos needed of series 2 headlight surround

Hi, anyone have a photo of what the "rectangular tab" at the top of the Series II trim rings looks like?
Please post if possible.

Re: Painting "the car"

Hi Guy's, Thanks for all the input, and I’ve taken onboard the comments from all’yall. A couple of things have come to light in conversations with the painter; one of the problems with my car specifically is how long certain panels have been in primer. There is no UV protection in the primer, so if ...

Re: Painting "the car"

Sounds pretty logical Kerry. They are talking about epoxy priming the whole car, so it would be in all the nooks and cranny's, but as you correctly pointed out, getting in to those places and making the primer stick would be alot of work - assuming it was to be done right. What did you think would b...

Painting "the car"

So, many of you will know that my GTE has been in bits for years at a paint shop. I finally spat the dummy about a month ago, collected the car and moved it to a new shop. SO, now there is questions about what was done - and how - and of course the new guy's are wanting to rip off all the primer and...

Re: New Owner - GTE #4533

Congratulations, looks like a nice complete car. I got the original color combinations by writing to Ferrari NA, who then asked the factory. Might still work. Now-a-days you can log onto the factory web site and submit the details of your car and at least get the color combinations but some others o...
