Ricambi, Ferrparts, Exotic Auto Recycling, if all else fails, Google 'used Ferrari parts'. Daytona seats should look great; we want pics when completed.

As the ex-owner of a few boats, I approve. Have the boat surveyed. There are a bunch of nooks and crannies where bugs can hide, but there is great satisfaction in having a boat that is YOURS.

Gene, how does NART differ from TdF and Pozzi? I agree the dark blues are all beautiful. But none looks as good, or as practical, as Hyperion. It can get pretty dirty before is screams, "Wash me".
