    Default My 348ts UPDATE as its been a few years!!

    Good afternoon guys and gals. Its been a while since I have posted anything, this is due to work commitments and a big house move - the car took a back seat so to speak! Once I was back on track the car came to the forefront of my mind again, so I have had plenty done! Where to start - well as some will know I have owned my 348 for 14 years and in this time I have tried to make it one of the best around. To give you an idea of how on/off my time is with my car due to life getting in the way, in 14 years it has covered 5k miles.

    SO what is new, well I have had the targa roof re-trimmed to match the Creama seats, the "potato sack" original finish was not to my liking and from a lot of research I discovered from factory you could have upgraded to the finish I have gone for (pictures below)

    A full suspension rebuild has taken place, all the original components were perishing due to being 26 years old! This has taken 3 months to complete (over 60 hours labour) but with sending parts off to be zinc plated or shot blasted etc time just gets away and all of a sudden its been off the road and out of MOT and TAX :-)

    So tomorrow is MOT day so I can TAX it and get back out on the road and try out the handling properly. Lets hope the weather holds out for one more weekend!!!

    The car looks superb Paul I'm sure it will fly through the MOT.
    Great pictures too. The targa top is a great improvement I think I
    will get mine off to the trimmers now.
