    how you close the holes for the pistons when you bring them for plating?

    perhaps you have an ATE part number for the sealing rings/rebuilt kit?

    Very nice work indeed.

    I have not seen the spinners mentioned so far in this thread (perhaps I missed them). Are they part of this restoration and if yes, what is planned for them?

    I really wish this was like a Netflix Original where the entire rebuild was posted at one time. I can't stand waiting...

    Ive restored spinners in the past, the ones on this car were wrong so they're being replaced.

    Thanks Marcel but that material is incorrect. I have that sample here as well and currently waiting for a new sample made elsewhere using an original piece as a reference.

    Well, you may want to discuss that with the original manufacturer.
    Suggest to contact Tappezzeria MAIELI near Mantova, Italy.

    That material looks like the 308 gts roof liner and rear shelf material I could never find..

    This material is the original sack material from an early 365 Boxer, the other (correct) materials sent when you try to have your interior returned to its former glory are incorrect.
    My seats were sent back to the factory in 1974 as the sack cloth “failed” and they were
    Trimmed in leather. The leather was removed this summer in a joint venture between Paul and myself. Inside the seat revealed fragments of the original material. The thickness of the twine/thread is different to all the samples available but is a 100% match for the larger section Paul has already pictured and is shown once again here.

    On this sample section you can see that the twine/thread is a different size from left to right as it is from top to bottom. On the original it’s the same. It was used on 30 cars and doesn't appear to have beer used on any other tipo’s. Possible due
    To the fact that it failed probably !

    Is there a good simple state-side source for this material? I saw the one Italian link. Re-originals perhaps? I could use a little for a 308. Using an abundance of caution, I removed some small pieces and washed by hand. There was some yellow-ish staining I couldn't clean. Still looks way better, but I would still consider replacing.
