    Greetings.

    I'm considering some cosmetic changes to my car, and would like to get a visual on it first.

    I'm thinking of removing the rear spoiler, painting the top to match the body color, and changing to GTB style side windows per the Charness modification. Another thought it doing the above, but with boxer trim.

    I've attached some photos, and more are available at http://www.ferrari328.com/gallery.html

    Thoughts?
    Thanks

    My Mac is having modem issues right now (bent prongs in the jack), but if no one helps you out in the next while I'll bring it to my uncle's cable modem to download it and give it a shot for you.

    Hai,

    don't know what you ment by the 'side window' spec. But I did the roof for you and removed the spoiler (don't think that would be an improvement IMHO)...Hope this was what you wanted...

    ciao,

    Can you guys remove those side markers or does that raise legality issues!

    U.S. regs sure know how to spoil Pininfarina lines!!!

    Great rims! What about colour coding the lower black trim? Or is that messing with it too much?

    this may not be what you want to hear...but if you are bored with the car, then sell it and buy another one. The car looks great like it is, and customizing it wont make it any more attractive. I vote keep it like it is and enjoy...or trade !!!!

    I love my car. I'm planning on never selling it. I just want it to look more like an early GTB with a matching roof and no rear spoiler. The window mod is described here, by Mike Charness.

    I agree about the lights, and if I ever get a full repaint I'll talk to the shop about replacing them with the small round euro versions. That's well in the future.

    Thanks for the pic, Waldo. I appreciate it.

    I had the Mike Charness' window mod done as well. Also had the roof painted in body color. Same goes for the wing (and the bumper).

    I have been thinking about that. Technically doable, but would require a repaint of at least all four fenders (at which point you might want to repaint the entire car). In my case something for the future. I'd actually replace the front ones with GTO round style ones.

    Gracias! That's exactly what I needed to see. I love it!

    Looks like I have my goals set for the next year or so.

    Jerry, the wheels above are just a bit oversized. Check Omar's pic below for how the wheel (not the tire) would look.
