    I've seen all kinds of painting configurations on the old Maserati V8 heads over the years. AFAIK the heads were painted on the Boras and on mine at least for the practical reason that nakid the castings had so many crude casting irregularities that they didn't bother to correct by fixing the molds or being more careful so they covered it all up with a very heavy coat of wrinkle paint. Which is what I did as well. Mine was built at the tail end of V8 production so perhaps by then the molds were rough?

    This looks great too. Mine would not though.

    Obvious but, have you contacted MIE about the vinyl?

    I am not familiar with the particular diamond pattern for the vinyl on the Bora, but if it is the same as that for the Ghibli spider hood cover, then Maieli in Italy have reproduced it.

    It looks like this:

    Hope that is the right one.

    Please post more pictures as you go BTW, bet the car will be spectacular!

    Cheers.

    Mark.

    Their hood material looks close but might not be the right size? Worth getting a sample after some diamond dimensions are exchanged.

    That looks wrong though. Thanks for the link to that source! They do have some things. :)

    The Ghibli spyder material is unique to that car and not the same as the Bora. The Bora material is the same as the Merak and the Khamsin. I would still check with Maieli as he might have the correct material for your Bora. This is a close up of the Bora hood pad.
