    I decided it was time to get Eva a makeover so I took her down to see Art at Color Guard Autobody her in Southern California. I could not let Angelis have all of the fun. ;)
    Art is very detailed and does outstanding work and has a unique paint protection system that is superior to the films.
    The work started on 10/31/09 and I will finally get her back this Sunday 12/13/09.
    Art fully re-built and strengthened the front bumper with particular attention to the lower scrap zone and fully restored the rear tail light section to remove all of the haze/fade from the years of UV damage so they look like new now.
    Art did a full paint and clear coat in Rossa Corsa along with his unique spray on paint protection system called "Color Guard".
    Here are some pics of the work that's been in progress for the last month or so, I will post the final pics after I get her back and get some dry weather.

    Things look like they're going well - I do love seeing respray/refurbishment threads. :D

    :D I think that's a great idea... I'd consider naming my 348 (if in future I'm fortunate enough to own one) after a favourite celebrity. Eva Longoria is hot and, I guess since Eva is taken, I might go for 'Halle' (Berry) if that's still available amongst the FChat Ferraris. :cool:

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Yes, Eva Longoria is hot, short and sexy, just like a 348 :)

    Dude, I thought you did this already?!

    Now we are never going to be able to polish your paint under that protective spray. :p

    Can't wait to see it after all the work. Good luck!
