    Just a couple of shots of the restoration of my 308. Colour is Blu Sera (metallic). This is a random selection of about 200 pictures I have. The doors required the most attention. The complete lower half of both doors has been renewed. Car received new paint all around, except roof and rear deck lid. These will be done over the winter. The reason for this is that there was no time to do everything at once, since I needed the car for an event here in Holland (20th anniversary of the Ferrari Club Nederland).Enjoy! Mick

    Great work, Blue 308's look fantastic.
    one small question, what sort of lift is that in your workshop?

    Looks beautiful 8valve. I love that color. All your hard work certainly has paid off.

    Are you going to post more pictures? Very interested in seeing a 308 being restored.

    Thanks for the kind reply's guys!
    I will try to find some more suitable pictures to post. As for the work that was done to the car, I did not want to make anybody believe it was done by myself, or in my own workshop. It was done by a pro, probably the best in the Netherlands. The lift that Andrewg was asking about is in the bodyshop, I do not know specific details about it...
    Thanks, Mick

    Spectacular. One of the nicest 308s I've seen.

    Do you recall what type of muffler is being used?

    Congratulations on a beautiful car.

    There was a question regarding the exhaust on my car from Snj5. It is something that has puzzled me ever since I bought the car in Germany a year and a half ago. I have never seen another one like it. Close inspection has only revealed a couple of numbers stamped into it, but no manufacturer's name. One thing is for sure: it is LOUD. I dare say that it is the best sounding setup I've ever heard. Ofcourse the original setup for this car would have been the single pipe exhaust (Euro-style), but I don't plan on changing it. I also like the handling qualities of the 16inch wheels and tyres, I don't plan on reverting back to the original 14inches.
    Thanks, Mick
