    I spoke with a very nice gentleman named Charlie Pierson about some parts I needed. He does Ferrari mechanical repair and service but not bodywork. He informed me that he has been working on Ferraris for a very long time and used to work for a dealership. He is located in the Philly area and is in the process of movng his shop. He told me something I never heard before, that you can do almost all service on Boxer including cam belt service without taking engine out. Anyone with any experience with his work?

    Charlie has never done any work on my car, but I had a long chat w/ him in 2001 at the Reading Concorso when he was one of the class judges for the vintage GT Ferraris. Extremely knowledgable.

    Does anyone know if he performs PPIs? Does anyone know how to contact him?

    Thanks for any help.

    Charlie is a good mechanic and worked for Algar at one point I believe. He used to do work for Carl Cantera. Carl had quite a collection. They restored a 250PF Coupe years ago that won a trophy at Pebble Beach.

    My company has done work for Mr. Cantera. And we have worked on many projects in the past that Charlie has worked on. A sample of our work is in Cavallino #141 pp33 400SA I restore trim and interiors and have had quite a few cars at Pebble and 2 Cavillino cover cars. And highly recommend Charlie!

    Many Thanks:

    I figured it out after a while. There ought to be a way to erase a dumb question, after the meaning becomes clear.

    Cheers
