    Plus new Door skins / frame work, chassis work, rear window panels and roof hole welding up and metal finished.
    As much as it’s nice to have a Ferrari....

    I love it when they go..... Stress relief....πŸ‘

    This one is going back to its original colour which is a burgundy shade .

    Will TIG butt weld them in but with my little trick to keep everything spot-on.

    Just a quick question for Pete is did Ferrari use the metric system or found it easier with the imperial system...????

    I say this because when I measure some things they round up better in Imperial.....????.

    everything on early Aston Martins is 42 7/8” or 12 7/8” or 23 7/8” nothing was rounded up apart from the bonnet edge at 102 inches..... how weird..... when You spend a year and a half of your life with a car , you never forget certain measurements....πŸ˜‚.

    Was this done to allow for any discrepancies on handbuild cars πŸ˜—

    Headlight pods are a bit out.

    Also used the old Tape measure.
    O/S Top edge of headlamp Panel to Front edge of pod 30.5cm
    N/S is 30.9cm

    Bumper is now Sitting straight but there is a different replacement bumper from somewhere in time , and is longer in length so has a tighter gap from bumper to edge of Wing.

    maybe acceptable back in the day , but these days we make sure everything is square with perfect gaps... each bumper can cost a small fortune to profile and Re chrome.

    Will split up the front panel with 3 or 4 inch gaps on the good O/S and make some more metal profile gauges which I can use on the nearside for checking.

    I’ve also made some paper templates today.

    I now Almost have enough information to make a panel.πŸ‘

    with my previous experience and help from Peter and you Gents.
    we are all progressing to make these cars better than they were.

    cheers Matt.πŸ˜‰πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

Found some lead work on front edge biasing the N/S.

    But headlight Pod is down and front panel on the N/S looks flatter then the O/S πŸ˜‰ , plus the bumper Iron tube is a 1” out .....so let’s get to it.
