    The massive rains at ICF ended up causing mold damage to my car, which wasn't spotted until this past weekend due to the fact it was stored :(

    So, who would you recommend to disassemble/clean/repair the interior of a 328?

    A lot of it just wipes off with a good cleaner. Try that. There is a good deal on cleaner and conditioner in FerrariAds.

    However Bill's in Arlington is superb.

    I've heard good things about A Tin Lizzy Affair in Richardson. They may be more pricey than you'd like though.

    Call Griots, I bet they'd like to sell you something to do it yourself.

    Tillman, I'm so sorry to hear about the mold - it sure did rain at ICF!! I would second the vote for The Tin Lizzie. I also like the idea of calling Griot's Garage - they are a pretty sharp outfit and probably have some products that would do the job for you.

    Good luck, Tillman. Please keep me posted.

    Tillman,

    We sent all our interior work to Tin Lizzy when I was at FoD. The work was always very good. I would recommend your calling them and going by to talk to them. They will give you all your options, from cleaning and conditiioning to total replacement.

    Let us know what you decide to do. If you find someone else who will do it and does good work the rest of us would like to know...

    I'll jump on this band wagon. I've used them for over 20 years, last time last week for an 840 Headliner, still the same excellent service!

    I also would recommend the Tin Lizzy Affair. Call the owner, Lucinda Howard, at 971-234-3791.

    I don't know any good ones but there is an evil shop in River Oaks, the owner hates babies & kicks puppies.

    Tillman, a wet interior sucks! Has the leather shrunk? What do you need exactly? I'll bet we could dry it out in one weekend. I would be willing to loan my services... you bring the beer...

    I used this guy for some leather work.. I believe he redid the interior for a 246 Dino also. Located in East Plano.

    Tillman, if you're looking for a local interior supply shop, take a trip to Larry Dennis in FW. He supplies several of the local trim shops.

    It's in the shop, but there's been no progress. Seems the insurance company is having some issues with figuring out the estimate. For those keeping track, we're at almost a month.

    I have to give kudos to RUF though, they've been very helpful during the process. Good guys all around, and while the car is there it's getting a little mechanical tweaking too.
