OK I think I'm going to up your "spectator" status to "TR God"carguy said:I am truly honered by your comments! I've always been a fanatical detail nut. The engine bay is nicer than the rest of the car now, so more work to do on the paint and interior to try and bring them up to standard. My car was a neglected one when I got it, so I knew I was in for a lot of work. I've converted the motorized seat belts to standard ones. rewired to console and dash. Recovered part of the dash leather that had shrunk and torn. Restored the wheels to better than new. The body has a few small dents and quite a few paint chips on the nose, so I'm not afraid to drive it. If the car were really nice, I would be more conservative with it. As it is now I can take it out and beat the heck out of it without worry. I am currenly making my own designed exhaust system that will be 70 pounds lighter than stock, and should sound good too. It is all stainless and polished. When I complete my system, I will take some pics and maybe a sound byte. I have had some interest from others who would like a system, but am waiting till I complete mine and "sort it out" first. Then we will see about making a set for others. It's not cheap, but will be less than half the cost of a Tubi or similar system. We'll see.
Agreed. I have found that when I work on my car the parts manual is of more value than the service manual. And input from others who have already been down the same road before.carguy said:As for available information, I found that my shop manual had some issues with conflicting information. Through the various Ferrari messege boards like this one, I was able to fill in the gaps and re-assemble everything.
