Testarossa...Wing Mirrors, Carpets and an odd badge!
Hello there FerrariLife!
My first post so fingers crossed!
I'm helping a friend get his rather neglected 1985 Testarossa back to gleaming condition - neglected, I should add, by the so called specialist that had been looking after it for the past five years. We have come to a point where we have a few questions/problems we haven't yet been able to resolve, so hoping this community may be able to help.
(1) Firstly, this Testarossa has small triangular wing mirrors and we would like to understand where they were sourced from. I have enclosed a photo of a Testarossa with these wing mirrors fitted (photo of the red Testarossa - this is not our Testarossa - ours is currently having a clutch fitted).
(2) Secondly, the car does not have the Pininfarina badges on either side - on one side the badge has been removed altogether, and on the other side it looks as if the badge has been painted over and some other type of badge fitted on top. We have looked into this extensively and found nothing. See photo attached - can anyone help!
(3) And finally, rather bizzarley, the 'so called expert' who had looked after that car seems to have lost the drivers footwell carpet, and we are unable to pursue him for this as he has recently gone to prison! Photo attached of the footwell with missing carpet - incidentally, this photo taken prior to us beginning work on getting her back to a good state of health!
So, any thoughts on the above three points would be gratefully received!
