  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday.

Keep in mind my email is admin@ferrarichat.com if you do have access problems after Wednesday. Thanks!

    Hello Folks,

    So, when we started providing refinishing we also created our own HVAC overlays for the 355 model because we wanted a more accurate overlay and one that had proper graphics, fonts and texture to match our coatings.

    We released our 355 overlays approx 1.5 years ago. And, while they are correct in graphics, we still were not happy with the ultimate finish which is a function of the technology used to produce these:

    Graphic overlays are silk screened on plastic sheet material from the back side. It's very hard to get a piece of plastic to match a painted finish.

    So, we recently created the art work for 550 HVAC overlays and had some discussions with our vendor that produces these. They proposed a material that is a much closer match to our coatings and the answer is a soft touch material.

    We really did not want a soft touch but that was the only option and method to get a finish as close to our coatings as possible.

    Our vendor has used this material for fork truck panels and they have been in the field for many years with no failure of the soft touch coating. However, we will provide a 5 year warranty on these for bubbling or getting sticky which we don't anticipate being an issue.

    Both Fahrenheit and Celsius versions are in stock and can be ordered via our online store ;)

    Note: While we do offer these for the DIYer's, we recommend that you have us do your panel turnkey as we refinish the dials, the 2 buttons (with laser etched graphics) and the perimeter of the panel. And, the overlays match our coating perfectly ;)
