I've been thinking about painting it red. What do you think. The paint on it is original and in great shape. It has usual bubbling starting at bottom of doors and under front bumper but it can go year or 2 before needing fix. I saw a red one on ebay and liked it. But I hate getting rid of original paint when it is still good. Any input will be appreciated.

Of your gonna repaint it, I say do it in it's original color. The 400 looks great in that dark grey look :green:

So far that seems to be the majority opinion.Keep it original stupid. But I did see a great one on ebay in red.

Well the nightmare is over.New shocks are on.See pics of new shocks and bushings.I sandblasted the springs,primed an painted red. Got the shocks from koni dealer at jobber price $325.oo for pair with tax.Got screwed by Ferrari dealer for bushings $185.00 for 4.Good thing I got them they are much improved over old ones.Have access to press and spring compressor so incurred no labor charges whole job with paint and primer ran me just under $600.00.Not bad when I was told they werent available and couldnt be done.I heard stories of F car dealers getting $1800.00 + for same job installed. Cars back and I'm motoring in it.Also I got Ferrari koni catalog if anyone needs part# or availibility ?.
