    I'am currently working on a Maserati Vignale Spyder 1962,and was wondering myself about a few things.
    Mayby someone here could help me out with it ?

    In the suspension parts and drive train im finding different styles of threads on the bolds and nuts (metric and uk or us threads), is that supposed to be like that ? Is there maybe a reason for,or is it just happend like that during construction of that car ?

    What is it about the finish of the bolts and nuts of the suspension and drive train , is it supposed to be black finish or just galvanized/sink yellow or white
    About that ,underneath the hood im finding different finishing of the bolts and nuts .
    Is there some logic about that , does someone know which bolts and nuts have to look like (black or galvanized) ?

    Could someone also help me out with the brake callipers,about how they supposed to look like .
    Is it white or yellow galvanized/sink ?
    Ive heard that they supposed to look like some dark grey color ? If thats true do you know what color that is ?

    It would be great to get some help here with these questions
    I’ve already had these questions in another post, but Portenos adviced me to also reply in this one .
    For a bigger audience

    Thanks

    Yes, thats the way they were sourced.
    Suspension, rear diff, drive line - British. Transmission German.

    Is there maybe a reason for,or is it just happend like that during construction of that car ?

    What is it about the finish of the bolts and nuts of the suspension and drive train , is it supposed to be black finish or just galvanized/sink yellow or white.
    Natural black is the best way to go.
    About that ,underneath the hood im finding different finishing of the bolts and nuts .
    Keep everything the same.
    Is there some logic about that , does someone know which bolts and nuts have to look like (black or galvanized) ?
    I think you are over engineering it.

    Could someone also help me out with the brake callipers,about how they supposed to look like .
    Is it white or yellow galvanized/sink ?
    Grey... definitely grey.
    Ive heard that they supposed to look like some dark grey color ? If thats true do you know what color that is ?

    Yes it is a very big audience, but most people are shy and just sit back but do not contribute.
    Good luck, but please take it easy, don't try to over restore the car.

    And then there was TWO.
    The finished Vignale with its newly rechromed front and rear bumpers and door handles awaits winter storage while it's brother the Daytona gets ready for the trip to Palm Desert CA for winter driving. Two cars with very different personalities.
    I store my cars with 70% 100 low lead Aviation fuel mixed with 30% non ethanol 92 octane.
    After sitting for 5 months I hit the key and boom! engine starts immediately.
    The chroming done by Jon Wright Custom Chrome Plating in Grafton Ohio is very expensive but "Best of Show" quality.
    His car won Americas best Roadster, at the Pomona Roadster Show two years ago.

    Hi André

    Very interesting piece which I had never seen before. I assume in the back of each paint chip is the name of the color and the code .... correct?

    Question about paint colors are very common and any piece of information is extremely important. It would be great if you can take individual high resolution photos of each paint chip (front and back), including the cover. If you e-mail me the individual photos I can assemble them into a single PDF file and make it available to others. As you may already know I have many of the manuals and sales brochures available free to download at: http://thecarnut.com/maseratimanuals.html

    You can e-mail the photos to ivan@thecarnut.com

    Thank you for sharing!
    Ivan
