NS all done and painted....Loads of hassle with the jacks and heat but that's it... Downside and there has to be a downside, i snapped one of the wheel studs but I'll deal with that another day.

Wouldn't it have been easier to remove the brake parts at work and taken them home to paint? They are just covers so you can still drive the car?

Fitting it in between jobs would have been a pain, it took me most of the day as it was,

Today was wax and polish....In the heat it wasn't a pleasure but i was compelled to do it.... Tomorrow i'm going to re-dye the soft top then seal it again.. I'm a little nervous about doing it but I'll be mad not to do it since i have all the dye's and so on.

As some know the correct F360 glass is more clear than the replica glass so after much prating about trying to hide where the engine stops and the boxed area it's in. So i decided to tint the upper 1/3....For once it actually went well..

Thanks...... It seemed the best way to hide the blank area above the engine, and trust me i've tried many things... Also today i've changed the Ferrari logo's on the wheels centre caps since the old one's had faded.

Actually yes you did blush.png....I had visions the join on the outside of the glass would look obvious, i was wrong... Even if you rub your finger over it you can barely feel it.

Yeah, i sent the others back... Believe it or not i totally forgot i could use the compartment doors??... The amp is set with about a 40/ 60 split between the front and rear speakers. The 40% is just under the distortion window for the fronts.

That looks ok , how does it sound ? 

 

I did my sons C1 a few weekends back , new front speakers and then made a rear parcel shelf out of MDF and audio cloth to mount 2 x 6x9's , along with a new headunit , he is thrilled

Sounds amazing, the sort of sound you feel in your back. I still have to play with the front/ rear balance but that's another day.
