Just how rich do you have to be, first of all to buy a car like that and then to let it get in such a state?

Great work guys.

Thanks mate.

We just try to offer everything from here as you say a 1 stop shop.
It saves the customer alot of time going from here to there and then onto somewhere else

They wont wait and will buy anything available or fashionable, Ferrari, Lambo, Aston etc.

When there is no loyalty to the brand there is little respect for the car and the first to suffer is maintenance and care other than cleaning. This is how older Ferraris receive more care than later versions.
I remember Chris(sorry I cant remember his user name ) on here who works at Dick Lovett saying at a meet something similar and that the garage queen versions always have more/more expensive problems than the ones driven regularly.

Ferrari as a brand has been massively diluted in recent times, a lot of it their own doing with all the cheap branded tat they sell.

I'd say the last version bought by enthusiasts rather than people who buy them for fashion reasons was the 355.

And why cant they design decent wheels? those rears really need to be wider lol.

I would be very worried if the quality of maintenance of the car extended to the engine and drive train. Wonderful transformation though on your behalf, court is out on the verdict of the colour but then its not my car so am sure the owner would be a chuffed as little apples with it..

Um.... probably going to get flamed/banned or something as it feels like wandering into a lion's den, but I'm genuinely puzzled! Am I the only one looking closely at these photographs and not feeling 'convinced'? No offence whatsoever intended, and maybe I've spent too much time around REALLY fussy people, but to my eyes:

Using spray can paint for scuttle panel - not convinced that'll last?

In a couple of the pics, car nuts and bolts have been left on the leather seat. Doesn't grease and oil stain, permanently?

The recoloured seat bolster doesn't appear to be a colour match?

The painted brakes have over spray on the rubber seals. Also, the stickers are going on last? Why would you not stick them on earlier and lacquer over?

The alloy interior trims that have been repainted look pretty patchy, but then I suppose they've been wrapped which hides it?

And the wheels are some of the worse refurbing I have seen, really uneven - you can see it from a mile off!

I don't post often in DW - a Ferrari owner sent me a link to this and asked my opinion - plus I don't do much detailing of my own these days and I don't know the OP from Adam so maybe I'm missing something, but there just looks like a lot of back slapping going and I don't get it?
