    Quite good ... possibly the biggest under statement in FerrariChats history!

    Brilliant stuff.

    I always wondered what a dino would look like without front and side markers, now I know. :)

    I'm sure he'll add them at some point but it looks slick without 'em.

    I hink that DK Engineering in the UK have an aluminium one for sale (or might be stainless steel) at the moment - am told body is excellent. Also, alongside the original roof, it has a unique 'fold in two' top that can be stored in the boot rather than behind the seats. Interesting all round.

    Si sent a few new pics of a complete re-body in aluminum.
    Lovely work!



    Actually a prominent painter posting here has used his as a template for completing Euro cars here - a good Dino community member indeed!

    I wonder:

    Paint or polished bare metal?

    Metal please.

    Would look cheap and tacky, and be dangerous due to reflections.

    Rough polished so far but do not mistake the blue for paint, he uses that as a detectant for surfacing levels. VERY approachable, if you are ever near John Wayne airport and want to see it, simply contact Si

    BTW, American Airlines saved over 500 pounds in paint weight on their aircraft by polishing not painting them
