    Default Ferrari 348 Project - Light Restoration

    Hi All

    Ive just taken a 93 348 TS into the collection and its looking a bit tired and neglected. I'm starting a simple light restoration of the car and similar tip the 308 project I intend to Vlog the process.

    Its not intended to be a concourse winner, but really using my home tools and skills in the garage to give the car a bit of TLC and tidy up some of the areas that tend to get neglected on, in this case over the last 25 years on the 348.

    Heres the intro to the car and project plan .....

    And episode 3 .... this is mainly removing the complete plenum chamber but handy if you ever want to tackle such a clean up.

    Regarding what we spoke about on Youtube with roof colour, just popped into the garage to do a Ďside by sideí comparison. I do like the car masquerading as a TB with the colour coded, just like the lines. But whenever I switch to the black it does add something. If you like the cars looking original as you said, I think itís probably worth the hassle and time to find an original. Just remember if you can only find a 355 targa and want to keep both roofs in use (or sell the colour coded one on), youíll need to find 348 roof brackets and seals as well.

    Enjoying watching the vids, nice work

    Once youíve seen them I can delete them off so Iím not cluttering your thread with pics of my car (the benefit of being a mod....... about the only benefit tbh ), but hereís a direct comparison of the two looks. Itís funny, itís just a roof colour, but it does change the look of the car a bit:

    Cheers Pete, much appreciate you taking the time to show me the comparison.

    I actually like both swell ....tricky one. I think I'll stick with the colour coded one on the car for now and lookout for an original.
