I've never seen a better looking wheel on a 355 than the OEM's.

Why people put on after market wheels amazes me.

Italians know best...they have the flair and gave the world art and design

Yes, I prefer the OEM wheels also. Ferrari and Pininfarina did an awesome job and I see no reason to alter perfection

Dow 7 is a chemical conversation needed on Magnisium to prevent corrosion and allow paint to stick

I never use impact guns on lug bolts - only a torque wrench.

So, just to clarify; An impact gun was used by a moron set on moron. Around here, they come off by hand and go back on by hand, followed by a torque wrench. It's just not that hard and really doesn't take any appreciable "extra" time to do things right.

Yes

I set my good quality torque wrench to 74lbs

Hows about you clever boys?

Door panels off. All parts removed for refinishing. Most are also prepared and ready for spray. I actually created 3 videos on door panel removal and accidentally deleted the second parts so I need to do that over again.

So, the tool kit that came with this car is like none other that I've seen before (very early car). I'll post detailed photos of it later but tonight I cleaned and applied Leatherique to the case. Yes, I know I have issues
