    Anyone interested in seeing how to do things on your Ferrari? I will be first to offer, as most of you know I am doing a complete suspension rebuild on my 308, all parts are off this would be a great time to see just what is involved in doing this job. First warm weekend I can do the chassis paint and then put things back together, who's up for seeing a 308 get it's wheels back on the ground. ( time of course is weather dependant )

    Hey Bob, If you need help, just say the word... ;) I'de be more than happy to come help and check out the guts to a 308... I could even bring the beer too.... This year i'm just having Continental do all my work, until i get more familiar with things. The only thing now that i probably only do is oil change and i have to fix the cig. lighter, so i can plug my cell phone or radar det. in....

    Let me know when you plan this fun activity, i'll see what me schedule looks like, so far, it's pretty open till spring time...

    With the way the weather is turning now I hope to paint in the next few weeks, so if all goes well should be ready to get it back together mid to late March

    No body painting this year, just the exposed frame areas, good time to do this with a lot of the junk out of the way.

    Sorry, I can't make it. Have another thing going on, but I'm sure whoever will be there will learn quite a bit from Bob.

    Hopefully I can make it to your place some other time this or next month. My car is slowly waking up.

    I sorta recognize the bits and pieces. It is amazing how cramed in that rear part of the car is. Never fully realized that.

    Did you guys have any left over parts after assembly?
