I prefer the unbroken "blackness" beneath the rear bumper but it looks like you did a very nice job with it. Did you paint the "Ferrari" on the bottom of the pumpkin? That is a super nice detail in red.

Alex- Looks great, but it will get dirty quickly. If that is not a problem, should work fine. Ferrari did that on some model cars, like the Superamerica compared to the 575M.

Incidentally, Fitz Metal Polish will have those tailpipes looking brand new in no time. Used by pro detailers.

The tips are coded in a black tint, which the client asked for. The ferrari on the bell housing in my trade mark. All my clients cars have the ferrari bell housing painted in red

Alex- Is that a brake decal or paint on the bell housing? Would be kind of invisible on my car.

Looks really good on the 355 - it's all personal taste.

The bell housing is a very nice touch

funny, didn't notice the bell housing at first, but i like it. I'm ambivalent about the diffuser. Like it both ways.

a bell housing is the portion of the trans that covers the clutch. It is not the part i was talking about. Brain farted that one for some reason.

Just had a new Clutch fitted on my 355 F1 Spider and asked for my Bell-housing 'Pumpkin" and heat shield to be 'pimped'. The Guys at Autofficina in the UK did a fantastic job for me!!

Even my wife noticed the new 'bling' when she followed me home after we picked the car up from the shop, she was very suspicious that i had been spending lots of money on upgrades again .....
