    Has anyone had any experience with Brandoli restoring a Dino? Seems like an amazing place!

    Also, it’s really nice to see so many Dino’s getting restored along with other classic Ferrari’s within the video!

    Freeman, through the intercession of Brenda Vernor, Egidio Brandoli sent me the uncut Ferrari headlight covers in 1999. In 2006, Brenda took me and my mother to the Brandoli shop, where I saw the collection of metal body bucks that they use to recreate individual body parts. It is truly an amazing operation, and their craftsmanship is second to none. Egidio gave me a lovely brochure describing the carrozzeria, and I even received Christmas cards from him for several years. A true gentleman, whose family supports his efforts in every way.

    Thanks Fred! I would be curious to know what a Dino restoration would cost at Brandoli. Probably done by the same craftsmen/family that built ours!

    Freeman,
    When I visited Egidio Brandoli's shop, he told me that he had built Dino bodies while at Scaglietti. I don't know for certain, but I seem to remember him saying something about having procured the wooden Dino body bucks from Scaglietti, which he then had remade in steel. He has U.S. and Euro bucks, for early and late model Dinos. The bucks for various Ferrari models are stored on several levels at the shop. I posted one of the pictures on F-Chat a number of years ago. Nuvolari uses it in one of his ads. Fred

    Brandoli have made some panels for my Dinos, last year I had 2 steel door skins for my E-series made which my local body guy is fitting to the frames.
    Workmanship is first class!
