Congrats Al. That seems a lot of space for a chassis, a body, and 3 cars. Where's the card table, refrigerator, 50" Plasma, Scuderia flag, etc... It needs a more "man homey" look.

Al, looks superb mate, but not as good as the F cars in there.
Hope it all goes well and the jobs keep coming in, you deserve it mate.
Best wishes Arch.

The website and galleries are much better now Al.

Al, I hope you are painting that 348 a nicer colour. Don't know why, but yellow doesn't suit a 348 but it does a 355.

If you've just painted it yellow - sorry, I'll shut up and go now

The 348 is currently several shades of yellow!!!!!
That's basically what we're sorting out - & returning the satin black to the lower skirt areas, a little rust on the arches & sill edges (despite it having less than 5000 miles on it) & realigning the doors.
I rather like it in yellow .
We have a black Berlinetta to do later in the year though which may be more to your taste
The 308 next to it is the one we repainted late last year - we're doing all of the satin black & zinc plating on the switchgear, ashtray etc - I think he's going to be having the interior done so wanted to get this lot sorted first.
