    Just made an assessment of what needs to be done in order to make it 100% ok again.

    - Replace the TRX 's with new ones and have the wheels powdercoated
    - Replace the hood lifts
    - Fix a crack in the front seat and treat the leather with some products
    - Take off the front bumper and re-align it + replacing the lights in the bumper
    - Have it dented and buffed out (some minor dents)
    - Muffler and intermediate pipe replacement
    - Put in back in gold...

    I really like that gold color. It's really a silvery-gold.

    I see you've got some other Fcars in the background :) Is that other Mondial a donor car, or are you also restoring that?

    I have a spare parts business, the dismantled car is a donor car and the one on the ramp is a GTB Turbo for which I had the radiator redone.

    Fixed a date and bodyshop for the respray in Oro Chiaro! It's planned for July this year and will take 2 months. Most of the dismantling and other prep work will be done by myself , they will sand the entire body and paint it, I'll do the rest. I'm really looking forward to this, it will be the nicest oro coupe!

    You've made a great decision and I tip my hat in Your direction. The Mondial will look fantastic in Oro Chiaro.

    That color looks too dark to pass
    as Oro Chiaro?? Could be the lighting, but I don't think so.

    Oro Chiaro is a very light gold color.

    Post #35 is closer.

    post #35 is taken in the sunlight, #40 under heavy clouds. There are several oro chiaro color codes... I have asked this to Ferrari Classiche and they came up with code F103

    I see. Thanks.

    It appeared that post #40 looked very dark gold, but if under heavy clouds that's understandable.

    Nice! I didn't know Michelin had different versions of the TRX tire.

    TRX-B is a tire made in the original molds but using modern materials and techniques. Not at all the original TRX tire. It's a modern tire that looks period. Got mine from Coker and they transformed the car - feels like power steering at parking lot speeds.
