You can buy leatherique direct. You need rejuvenating oil and pristine clean. Best conditioning products I ever used. Chemical guys leather cleaner is best I used.

Toolkit and owners manual cleaned and conditioned. Leatherique really makes the leather soft and come alive. Smells awesome too

Looks great! What is different about the tool kit compared to later cars? I've never looked in mine.

If you are going to tell someone how to remove a bolt you should at least know which way to turn the wrench.

Dave,


Any chance you could make duplicates of all these manuals? I don't have any except on line and would like a paper set if they weren't too expensive.

Went over to paint shop today to drill mounting holes for skid plates.

Body parts have epoxy and will get primer today and block standing will start tomorrow.

Wheels also came back from Dow 7 while I was there which will get epoxy right away.

Wow... I vanish for a few months and come back to find yet another F355 in your garage. What motivated you to purchase this one? You aren't even done yet with the other red lady, correct? One of these days I need to visit your porn studio.

Hi Joe,

Nice to see you back

Well, they just seem to find me

Just too good of a deal to pass up. This one should be done in a few weeks and then back to the real project

Do you plan to keep all 3 or will one of the red ones end up being sold once you have restored them?

My black F1 will go to my grave. The 95 major project completion is far away so I have no idea but unless I find something better to replace it with, I will probably keep it. This car, as awesome as it is, will probably be sold as I just have too many and it's really hard to find time for them all.

If only I had a bunch of money intended for a Ferrari, the F355 GTB would be the one. Sadly, even when I do come into some money, I'll most likely sink it into a future business. A newer and hardly used way of producing carbon fiber parts that reduces the curing and part of the labor down to like 15 minutes. It's been used only on one vehicle that I know of, to create various parts and it was a limited production run at that. The car was bonkers. And then my idle mind has been figuring out ways to design the rotary engine so that it has a chance of being competitive in fuel economy, oil consumption and emissions.
