Re: 1997 Barchetta - Re-Built May 2009

Hi Harry

Blood sweat and tears. They bonded the two every 5mill, then glue then fibre glass, then filler. Then tested over many bumps and all perfect.

There are no body seams at all.

She went back today as the garage want to do a full check. 1 month after, they want to ensure the paint is perfect.

Great guys.

HI

When the interior is finished andnew wheels I will do more. However I am showing her at the Bristol Auto Italia this year. And yes I love the colour, shines gold in the sun.

The front will be started next week. I am not happy with the current indicator \ fog set up. So I am creating a 1 indicator 2 fog light look each side. Something smaller but matching.
