    We'll get proper pics when the work is done. Interior is dark blue! Original owner, Miles Davis. He sure spec'd it right. There's a Youtube video somewhere of him showing off this TR on "60 Minutes." She's been sitting for a long time but now in good hands with Dan and team, getting the works done.

    I give a lot of credit to Dan and his team.....that job would have given me a heart attack. Virtually everything that could have a problem....does have a problem. I don't understand what the PO $17k investment did.....most of the engine and chassis looks original. That flywheel looks like a flywheel that came off of one of my drag race cars in 1980.

    Look forward to more pictures.

    why you cover the plastic holders for the ignition wires and not just replace them?

    Those are no longer available as far as I can tell. If you have an old set or know of a source,let me know, as I need one for my 512 tr. Dennis

  10. Just goes to show that there are cons and incompetence all across the spectrum. Good show for Dan and crew to do it right.

    Dan and crew did my major and then some back in April (’87 TR with 30k mi). Class act, very well done, and has entertained my many questions since having the service performed. I am very pleased with him and his team.

    The wire holders were NLA from our domestic source.

    Nice looking hose. I tossed out the Cohline version of the exterior braided hose in favor of a more modern (internal braid) high pressure FI hose. Against the firewall, they are not seen. Could you please post a pic of the Flennor hose’s cross section? Does it look better than the Cohline?

    Nice work on the replacement fuse panel, I just GT carparts do mine. Did you have to replace any burnt connectors?

    What modern hose did you use? I'm looking to update my fuel lines as well.

    I’ve said I’ll do many things on my own, many I’ve done, many I gave up on. But this one I never said. The gt carparts solution is not worth my time re-engineering. They nailed it!

    He real question is who did the major? Everyone needs to stay away from that shop. They did a horrible job!

    Ferrari Ft Lauderdale. I brought it to the sister dealer in Long Island after my garage stunk like gas from driving her home from FL and speaking with the head of both service departments..., and the whole situation just got worse from there. All I can say is thank god it's in Bradan's hands now.

    You went to clearly one of the best. They do exceptional work and are detailed oriented from what I have seen and heard.

    What is the type and color of the paint used on the valve covers? I'd like to get some for my car, can you list your source?
