Firstly i wanna thank your responses to my introduction.
Promised, i will post photos of my car soon but i do work too much at the moment !
So i built air box and others parts in genuine carbon fiber,above all engine parts, (workin' in aeronautic composite), and i will send photos later .

Well, at that time i have to remove the inside roof panel (GTB) in order to remove its fabric covering.
Indeed, with years this material did unstick around the hair enplacement.
Thus i want to definitely remove and clean the fabric from the roof panel and reassemble.

If anyone does know how to remove the roof from the car it woul'd be so usefull for me ...
Read U later

The solution for the roof removing

Hi Dino246GT and readers

I succeeded in removin' the roof of my GTB thanks to a friend advices specialised in rebuilding of old cars :

working stages:

- remove by taking down strongly the top of the weatherstrip around the door opening (LH and RH) .Pn: 60298007
-remove lower carpets (right and left division) Pn:60079209
- remove the gaskets around the back little glasses (Pn:60155801)
- drill the rivets all around the roof maintaining it on the structure . Easy around the doors but around the little glasses you have to cut the rivets head with a good litte pliers ! That is the way to not be forced to remove back glasses. For the reassembling behind the unaccessible glasses, an eccellent stick like ARALDITE 2012 (aeronautic quality) will replace easily the rivets (a few points of stick will be enough).
Concerning the one's around the door you can refix new rivets (alu pop models)
- removing the spot of the moulding for ligths (the bigger one) by catching it with fingers. Screw off the visible nut and pull off the moulding from back to front. pull off the electric connector.
- Right now you can remove the roof out by exerting a strongly movement from the front size and it's ok

Now you can unstick the cloth and wash it (cold water with your own detergent in a few qtty, watch out and try on the little side parts before!)

- clean the roof fiberglass panel (stick)
- clean the steel parts on the sides because of the rust, protect it,pull off the remaining rivets' heads.

Actually i'm looking for a good "felt" to be sticked between the panel and cloth.
The good quality of glue is NEOPRENE (aerograh application)
Good work and all the best !

Dennis,

I am starting to think that black is actually a better color for the 308. I like how it hides the bumper. Great looking car you have!

Thank you, I really searched for an injected black berlinetta for some time! Finding one that already had the rims swapped for 16s was a real bonus, as I had planned to do this first off!! Now I just rec'd Birdman's fuseblocks, and have ordered from Ricambi, K&N, UFI, aluminum script gas filler, new rubber gas flap, and the power window boosters!! I really need to upgrade the A/C though, any suggestions? Ciao! Dennis
