    I love that they did not put any side mirrors on the barkaway car. It’s just a. Cleaner look.

    I am not sure I am impressed by a 3 years restoration. Unless there were major parts missing and requiring endless search, there is no reason to overstretch restoration on such a long period of time.
    I have done several concours ( real, PB level) restoration and a full year is the norm. Ok with Covid and major bodywork we extend recently to 18 month including some details of decals ( period race livery ) etc.
    But for me indicating a 7 years restoration does not mean it is a better job. Unless the owner does all the work himself , like our friend the Admiral. But if it is with a company with multiple resources, I would not wait for such a long period of time, even if the work is magnificent. May be I am getting too old,,,

    Ian Barkaway says in the video 3000 hours of work was put into it. Can't remember where I got the 3 year time it took but he does say in the video it was 2-3 years.

    More details here.

    As the son of the owner of this car, I can confirm that it took 3 years from when we purchased the car (with the intention of restoring it) to it being fully completed. However, this is because we had a second ongoing restoration at the time of buying the car so Barkaways had the car for 3 years but no work was done on the car for the first year. We also agreed that we wanted to have the car at Salon Privé in 2020 and we were happy to wait until then for the car to be done as we didn't have any storage for the car until then. With this being said this restoration could have/would have taken just short of 2 years to do if we wanted it ready as soon as possible.

    It can easy take 3 years for a decent restoration job. When you have the wheels off you may as well do the brakes so to say.
    I often watch a restoration program on television where they did a so called restoration in a few weeks.
    That is impossible and the cars must have been junk when they started work as well as when they finished.

    I agree! especially if Maranello want to get involved. We got a 330 restored by Barkaways prior to the Lusso and Ferrari wanted the car to go to them for a month to do some of the work on it. 2 years later the car was still in Italy so 3 years can easily go by before its finished

    Nothing against them, still a lot of love for Ferrari and that will never die but it did take a while but that could be due to al ot of factors that I am not aware of.

    It wasn't meant as a negative comment it was just to explain how a restoration could end up taking longer. It wasn't an issue and Ferrari didn't insist that we sent the car to them, we just decided to do it to tick some boxes for Salon Privé.

    My comment was basically that your either for them or against.
    Not to many taking the middle road.

    I am definitely for them 100%. I have been around restorations for long enough to know not to expect them to be done in a couple of months so I am completely fine with restorations taking multiple years to be done properly. It was just meant to explain to BIRA how a restoration can take a long time.
