    First timer here looking to pull the trigger on an exterior and interior refresher of my 1975 308 GT4. Does anyone have a recommendation for each process in the L.A. area? A few questions I'm considering:
    • re-dye the interior or completely reupholster?
    • repaint the existing silver or go back to what I think is the original (see photo). If the latter, what color is that?
    Grazie.

    Looks like blu scuro. Very nice color on a GT4.

    I have airbrushed dye onto leather interior pieces with great results so if your interior is in decent shape that may be the most cost effective option.
