    I sure would like to see a summary of your costs since you have done everything to a high standard.....I remember talking to the former owner, and we were talking in the $180k USD price area. Would have been a mistake for me.

    You most likely did right not buying the car if you look at it from a economical point of view. It was was meant as a joy full project for me and so it has been. I now have a car with very low miles and in very good condition, absolutely rust free and in 100% original condition from cabin and backwards.

    I have not summed up the repair cost in details, but it has not been overly expensive since I did all the work my self apart from the paint. A qualified guess is something between 40 to 50K $ spent over a 2 year period with NO expense saved and also including tools and all bits and pieces. This guess includes everything from complete set of new rubbers, tires, front lid, new ignition system, exhaust and paint job. I have attached a part of my shopping list for info and inspiration.

    Best, Peter

    Thanks. Please note that minimum 80% of the spare parts on the list are none related to the front damage and would have to be acquired anyway in any high quality restoration. That also goes for the paint job. So the cost for fixing the front is "relatively" low but the job was big and messy though very satisfying.

    Anyhow I guess the average restoration price for a 512BBi is way above what I have spent.

    For others reference we are talking about: https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/512-bbi-51257-ended-up-in-my-garage.562798/

    Best, Peter

    Best to get them recharged if you still have the original struts with the Ferrari script on them. I did and they've worked great.

    Can someone advise the correct info on BBi toolkit for 82 Boxer? Would it be in a tool roll, then in pouch? And if interior of car is black is pouch then black? Or is it just in black tool roll, then mounted in strap in front of right front wheelwell?
    Thanks,
    John

    Look in the parts manual for the BBi. All correct pieces are listed along with part numbers. As the parts manual is an "official" publication I consider it to be the go to guide for such things. However, I do believe the book covers years prior to 1982 on certain items.
    The cars changed as they went down the assembly line year to year and some things aren't listed in the parts manual! Go figure. Oh wait. It's Ferrari. Nuff said.

    Oh, one more thing. The '82 had a zippered pouch for the tool roll. It was done in the same color as the interior and has the embossed Prancing Horse on it. Mounting wie, it kinda fits where the tool case was designed to fit in Carb cars.

    Is the tool kit in a roll, then inside the pouch?
    Thanks,
