    Could you or Terry drop me some contact details please?

    Having a real struggle finding a trimmer that will a) answer the phone/ return messages, b) wants to do the work and/ or c) thinks they should be on a higher daily labour rate than a Barrister!

    I can vouch for the trimmer.... Terry’s car is perfect!
    Hi Mike, still around and well thanks but been catching up with jobs around the house the last couple of years.
    Ready for another project if someone would like to buy the Spider.
    Hope you are well, a catch up would be good.

    Congratulations on the F355. Giallo is the best colour by far.

    Idle hands...bit quiet today so the big base speaker and amp in the front compartment coming out lead to a few other “things” coming out!!! Still at least 2 more black boxes under the dash and a load of wiring to come out which I’ll do when I take the dash out for retrimming.

    No idea what most of it is But I did start the car after every cut/ disconnect and it still runs so was all obviously superfluous!

    I found similar under the dash and behind the HVAC on my 348 when I bought her. Not surprising these cars *occasionally* develop electrical problems, is it?

    When my F355 was in last year for its complete re-spray and de-stickying I also had all the extraneous ‘gubbins’ removed, almost exclusively an array of badly fitted after market alarm systems, immobilisers and trackers. The installations of these had been performed so badly that the fuse/relay board was in dire straits and hanging on by a thread, literally in some cases, with tracks broken and bridging wires soldered on. It was junked and replaced by a brand new, and very expensive, board and the wiring returned to ‘stock’.

    Default Boxes

    My 348 has 3 nineties immobilisers fitted, only the Cobra works. I want to get the lot ripped out too, but not as brave as you yet.
