Re: Personal pics

Thanks, but it just won't work (it says the upload failed ???).
Really having a hard time with uploading the pictures - I'm feeling old !

Re: Personal pics

And another one (the one used for my avatar).
Looks nice together with my Ferrari gear knob (original Daytona, for the correct gear patern which is obligatory in Belgium).

Re: Personal pics

I definitely must do these on mine.
Could you please tell me the color code of the red paint?

Re: Personal pics

Again, it's a powder coat wrinkle red (same color as the Ferrari's - still -use ).
Cost me 70 euro's but love the texture of the wrinkle paint (like old days, not over the top) .
Have patiently filed all text away with the exception of barchetta in order to make it look even more traditional.

Are still in doubt what to do with the valve cover .... keep it the way it is? paint it satin black? wrinkle red like the spark cover? polish it to a high gloss?

Painting it matte black or polishing it to high gloss sounds good.

I wish I had the inclination to do that to the engine bay! Yours looks stunning!
