This classic Ferrari was brought to our shop for a repaint in its original colors.
We begin with a meticulous inspection of the car, finding flaws and places to be fixed with metalwork.
Then we start disassembly and inventory - making sure every single part is catalogued and sorted.
Next comes preparation and bodywork.
After all metal and bodywork is done, we prime the car.
Coats of perfectly-matched color go down next.
Then after many many hours of sanding and polishing, the car is reassembled and, in this case, original racing livery is returned.
This 412 was in need of a refresher after sitting in storage for quite some time. Some cosmetic things including the paint and some mechanical work were required to bring it back!
The body was fully sanded and bodywork began to fix the imperfections created by it's time sitting.
The new coat of Pozzi Blue was applied and ready for clearcoat.
The paint work was all done and it was now time to address the mechanical gremlins.
A full fluid flush was performed along with new brakes and exhaust to bring it back to fantastic running condition!
After the engine was addressed, the interior was next on the list. The seats had been poorly redyed previously by another shop and the leather around the dashboard had completely shrunk.
The seats were redyed and new leather was found, stitched, and put back on the dashboard to fix the shrinkage issue.
The car was finished and ready to go!
Our customer brought us this Ferrari after years at another shop. The results of their body and paintwork are shown here. We prepped for a complete restoration.
Needless to say, we had to start from scratch. Here we see the previous shop's handiwork. Unbelievably thick body filler that 'blew off' the body.
Here, the hood is shown. This was a very recent job. The car was brought into sunshine and POP! Off it came. We media blasted the whole car.
The paint meter showed extremely high numbers all over. A factory paint job should read approximately 5-8 microns.
We performed extensive metal and bodywork on the Ferrari before it went to the paint booth - shown here.
Jack is prepping the body for another coat of dark gray metallic paint. This was after the epoxy primer - and before clear coat.
Close-up shot of the hood after several coats of paint and clear coat. Extensive sanding with many grits of sandpaper, then buffing results in deep, clear, flat shine.
The car, finished and reassembled after a complete body and paint job. We also restored the rest of the vehicle in-house, from interior to mechanical.
Finally the car had it's unveiling at the Cavallino show - a pre-eminent Ferrari event. It won Platinum in Class, Mar-a-Lago Excellence and the Wayne Obry Memorial Award for Excellence in Restoration.
Our customer brought us his 1971 Olds 442 W30. His wish was to do a complete color change to GM code 62 Bittersweet.
We prepped the entire body - from engine bay to door jambs and trunk. Then got to work priming.
We are known for attention to detail and exceptional paint. This car was no different. The results speak for themselves.
The customer was very happy with the results.
