Hi Mitch and welcome! You have really helped me tune my suspension in the past. I am still trying to make my car perfect. I have a few more things to take care of like the little black triangles that you close the doors with. Mine are bubbling, it looks like rust under the paint. Only $700 each from Ferrari. I can not repaint them because the rubber seems to be melted on and I would ruin them if I removed it. I also had a cat start to make noise last week. So now I am in the market for new ones. And the usual leather shrinkage problem. I feed my leather every month, but I do drive the car almost everyday to work so it does get some sun
I would like to find out what others have done about these issues.
Hi Dave! Good to hear from you. I kinda resolved the problem. BTW, thanks for your help. I received so much help, I forgot to thank a lot of people. I did fix the siren, it was just rust on the contacts.... but then.... I lost the darn wiring harness!
Damn, I have been kicking myself ever since.
I ordered one from Lyle Tanner about two months ago. Paid $75 for it. I called Lyle today and he said Oh Sh*t, I will ship one tomorrow off of a 348. We will see...
Anyway, I could use the wires and connecters from a computer power supply to make a new harness. From what I remember it was not much different
I live just outside Monterey, if you ever do get a convoy (even of one car Let me know. I drive my car almost everyday to work. I know there are at least 5 other F-cars in my neighborhood, but I have never seen them on the road.
Thanks Tony, I am registered to exhibit at the Concorso Italiano the 13th of August and unless the creek rises I'll be there.
So far it's looking like it will just be a convoy of one and I imagine I'll be busy scrubbing off bugs but stop by. I'm the silver 355 with a Texas plate.
I will be around all weekend, Saturday at the Historics and PB on Sunday. I plan to play some golf on Monday, and then head back to Texas on Tuesday.
Tony, this is straight from the website:
"Concorso Italiano is not a formally judged concours. All that is required is that your car be in clean condition. The "Best of Show" trophy is awarded based on the sole discretion of the Concorso's Official Judging Team. A "Best in Marque" trophy is also awarded."
My car is certainly not in Concours condition but I'm proud enough of it to show it off. Besides, exhibitors get the best parking, entrance to the hospitality tent and it only costs $20 more than a spectators ticket. You do have to get there between 7:00 & 8:30 a.m. and stay until 4:30 p.m.
I am all for getting a group of folks (355 owners?) together that weekend, just let me know.
