Here is a quick video of the car starting. I made this video to show the gauges and warning lights working. Also you can hear the new gear reduction starter.

Still hoping for Construction Zone.

Today, we installed the carpet. Its almost done but still needs some trimming. We also added a map cover with a Ferrari emblem. Finally we started the wiring on the auto-dim compass rear view mirror.

Today, I got the car out and washed and waxed it. It had been stuck in the garage for months. Also my friend stopped by with his 512bb replica, powered by and ZZ430 with a 6-Speed F40 transmission. It was a nice day of talking cars and eating hamburgers.

Here are a few photos.

Great pics, Chris!! If someone didn't know better they look like still shots from an episode of Miami Vice. No, not calling ya a drug dealer....just sayin' it for all of the exotics. Thought I'd clear that up before some one says something.

Looks like a dry day. I was just in SanFran on Wednesday, the skies were just clearing up. Maybe when I get my Fiero-arri mutt back on the road we can all join up for a run. You'll probably still have the car by then...thinkin' up more tasks to do on the 355 so that you can keep it for a little while longer. I had a question about your roof earlier.

Sure come down!! Yea your probably right the Ferrari will still be here. My girlfriend is waiting for it to get done so she can buy a new Lexus, but she doesn't want to get one until she has the garage spot back.

As for the roof I missed your post. I replied on Ari's site.

Nice warm January day here in Michigan huh??
LoL, J/K I am in California. The new owner of the car is in Virginia, but has some property in Michigan, so its registered there due to there more lax smog laws.

SEM interior trim paint. I have used SEM on lots of stuff before and it works really good. You probably could just spray paint it using normal paint, but I didn't want to chance it on this project.

Yes is was. Corson made a really nice kit!! This one has held together very nicely for 20+ years and a 100,000+ miles.
