    The Hubs and spindles on the dino are normally raw cast iron that rusts out. So for the sake of keeping the car looking nice long term it's normally acceptable to have them painted black. After doing a full suspension restorations I found a cast iron paint from east woods that grew on me. So these will be painted over the black powder coating in cast iron paint.

    If I owned a Ferrari, I'm not sure I could ever paint the aluminium. I know some were when new but it's such a beautiful metal.

    I can't stand it when people paint Alfa Romeo Nord engines ... should be shot!

    Bradan, we need to see photos of the body progress please :)

    I hear you. Aluminum just soaks up anything near it so it wouldn't stay bright for long. With this type of work we just aim to keep it original and last long term.

    Plenty to come no worries.

    Incredible stuff. Make sure there are no extra parts like in Doc Hollywood! :)

    the car is ready to be painted. if anyone is interested in finishing this car in the color of their choice pls PM me as I'm making room for another car. There are thousands of pictures that Bradan hasn't been able to post up here due to his busy schedule but this is your chance to own a fully restored, photo documented dino GTS in the color of your choice. PMs only, thnx.

    Very sorry for reviving an old thread, but I read every page and would LOVE to see how this Dino turned out.
