    No, the one on the left is Blu Ferrari 20-A-185.
    Not the same as Blu Ultrascuro 20-A-174.

    Car on left is 12955, the one in front is 12705.
    Both owned by Swiss. Both cars being restored by Cremonini of Modena.

    No Grant,front is the same way,also under front hood black edges that are usually with rough grind marks painted in flat black are all nicely finished ,when the shop that built the car recieved all the new panels from Ferrari they said they were so roughly finished he could not install them that way and finished them all off,Chuck

    Grant, I don't think the front & rear valance panels are supposed to have "underseal", i.e. rock chip guard/undercoating typically found inside the wheel wells.

    I believe, the front/rear valances are supposed to be just painted flat black, same as rest of the undercarriage, chassis, engine bay and trunk interior, including underside of the bonnet/hood & deck-/trunk-lid, etc.

    Most restorations often seem to paint all of the above in semi-gloss and many seem to cover front & rear valances with some textured rock-chip guard/undercoating, all which according to my research I believe to be incorrect (for authenticity/Concours purposes).

    I've seen some U.S.-spec. cars having had some rudimentary "rust proofing" sprayed on their underfloor sheetmetal panels (U.S.-spec only) above the mufflers, presumably at Scagliettis.

    Sorry Timo it was just my way of describing there was no black under the car.

    No problem, Grant. I kind of figured that, but decided to use the opportunity to expand in case someone else reads/researches the subject.
    I also believe those lower valance panels originally had many or most of their sheetmetal (oxy-acetylene) welding seams clearly visible, but most (or all?) re-paints/restorations seem to have a tendency to "erase"** (or cover) the seams by prepping/smoothing them too nicely (i.e. "over-restoration" ??), so Chuck's car, even without valance "black-outs" is not really that much different than most out there.

    ** Same with that (infamous?) "Scaglietti-blister" (one of my personal pet-peeves), which probably more than 90% of Daytonas in existence today are missing.

    *** I’d have loved to credit the individual who actually came up with “that” idea/solution for the rather obvious problem, but chances of finding out his(?) name now +/- 50 years later are probably next to nil.
