Hey everyone!

Hey everyone, just thought I'd say hello to all you fellow TR owners and enthusiasts! I got my flat black TR shortly before Christmas 2013 and have enjoyed working on it (and of course driving it!) For the past six months. Looking forward to interacting with you all!

Dan- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Not sure I have ever seen a matte painted TR. Would love to see some photos. What type is she? Center-locks or wheel bolts?

Hey again,

Here she is! The matte black is a wrap, complete with carbon fiber accents on the sides, hood, and 'chicklet' on the engine bonnet.

87 Testarossa, single lug wheels. Original color was black

Dan- Looks like Dath Vader's TR. Very nice wrap. The low mirror TRs with center locks are my favorite of the pre 512 TRs.

Mmmmmm. Can't decide whether I love it or hate it, but it certainly makes a statement!

Damn, just gave me an idea for my TR...pontificating and ruminating over it now.

I must be hanging out with the 30 and under crowd too much because I definitely like it.

Hey guys, thanks, yes, the strakes have been removed. To remove yours you'll need to take apart the door panels on the inside. Straightforward though. I think it modernizes the look. I left the strakes on in the back though - without them, the car doesn't look as distinctive.
