    Love it!


    Re: Dino update

    The color is a bit lighter than my 1984 RX-7, but it still reminds me of my wife with a "Bon-Jovi" hair style. Smiley

    Oh and yes that is my pickup truck in the background.

    Sorry, Gnil I was still busy editing after accidentally posting the pic without a description. That's the wife of 27 years.

    Still miss that little RX-7, but I miss my 455 cu in V8 Trans Am a bit more!

    Still, Leawood's cars have been pretty awesome.

    Re: Dino update

    Gnil, no offense taken; in fact I thought it was pretty funny. I was just suprised that someone found my "accidental" post in the few seconds before I had finished editing.

    At any rate, I don't want to steer the thread away from car colors and Dino's.

    There are many cars that I really like, but the Dino is still my number one in appearance.

     


    Re: Dino update

    I think the picture is perfect. Your wife standing alongside a car she obviously is proud of. Good for her!kiss


    Re: Dino update

    1st gen RX-7!!! I had one of those before too, it was a fun car to drive.

    Gnil, I got you beat, I am coming up on 16 yrs end of the year, haha.

    Re: Dino update

    Iain - words cannot possibly describe the total commitment and dedication you display in all of your projects...

    Your attention to detail is bordering on OCD (in the most positive description of interpretations)

    Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedules to share these amazing achievements with us on R/T...wink

    I really should visit here more often. So much quality over quantity.

    I'm flabbergasted and astounded that you have managed to keep your sanity doing all these restorations.

    Keep it up and thanks for sharing. Really such cool projects! kiss


    Re: Dino update

    I went to the trimmer today and the interior is fitted. He has made a beautiful job. I'll get better photo's once I get the car back in a few months as these don't show the fantastic graining on the Connolly leather.

    I think Porsche now make home versions of their car seats.... OK but not really that special outside a Porsche car.  But I would love a pair of these seats in my home..... kiss

    Re: Dino update

    By the looks of it your trimmer might be doing a better job than the factory ever did. kiss


    Re: Dino update

    The car is just about ready to leave the bodyshop and is being collected on Friday. It is going back to my Ferrari dealer to have the rebuilt engine installed along with all of the other items that were removed for refurbishment. The suspension will be stripped, cleaned, powder coated and re-bushed and the over hauled brakes refitted. I hope to have the car back in late August if all goes to plan.

    Simply beautiful - when it is done it will be very special!


    Re: Dino update

    Still not convinced about the color, but I'm sure the end result will look amazing.

    Astounding!

    Its exciting to see this coming along!

    And the color is absolutely fantastic.


    Re: Dino update

    Iain, are you up to date on Dino transactions? A red GTS just crossed the line at Monterey for 440k. Fair price for the condition?

    I know the buyer, and seeing all those Dinos you posted I have a little tiny itch :)

    Re: Dino update

    If you mean the car at the RM Auction which was chassis #06158 then it looks a tidy example but has a few detail issues that are apparent in the photo's. It's not in it's original exterior colour either and the targa panel has been painted body colour which is incorrect. The price looks fair for the overall condition however especially considering the low mileage.

    http://www.rmauctions.com/lots/lot.cfm?lot_id=1067562

    The quality of Dinos offered at the various auctions at Pebble this year varied enormously with some really shabby examples being offered in the hope of achieving strong money. It looks like buyers were sensible though and didn't pay over the odds for cars obviously in need of varying amounts of restoration work.

     


    Re: Dino update

    Great to come back to this thread every so often kiss

    I'm still amazed at the attention to detail. Simply incredible angel

    I too doubt that the original car could have looked this good from the factory ... angry

    I think that Ferrari themselves should be made aware of this ... perhaps somewhere Enzo himself is looking down and smiling wink
