    Thanks again to Trev! With the other ecu tweaks that he put in at the same time the car is usefully more urgent and responsive.

    Conspicuous by its absence from the lost above however is a 599 conversion...

    Come on, who’s going to be first! The body coding Is the same for 612, so there should be no issues with getting it all to work.

    Since the project has been complete, I’ve been using a home printed pedal that I reinforced with carbon fibre. I’ve been waiting an age to get the final pedal machined on a 5 axis CNC mill. I gave up on waiting from the local place that was going to do it as a favour, and a few weeks ago sent it out to an online service. It finally arrived and looks beautiful:

    Last one - just to show the job all done. Thankfully managed to get out for a good run at the weekend before the government put us on full Covid lockdown. (Didn't thinking I'd be some day typing that when I started this thread...)

    Well done!!!!

    Ferrari should offer this conversion as Aston Martin Works offer it for the Vanquish and Vanquish S

    Thanks gents, and based on the level of support Ferrari want to give these kind of projects (Steve F knows all about this!), I'd say the chances of Ferrari offering a conversion service lie somewhere between **** all, and never going to happen. :)
