Re: 250 Gte vent in drivers footwell

Last message - I promise :)

Chris texted me that I probably misunderstood Tom´s question - the vent covers in the foot panels left & right have the same colour like the one under the dashboard at the driver side.

cheers, Martin

Re: 250 Gte vent in drivers footwell

One more thing about the leather: it is the original leather - has all the stamps and marks on the back side, but was restored and recoloured by me. The colour is very close to the original but the look of course is rather new now. You can see the exact difference at the foto attached as the seats h...

Re: 250 Gte vent in drivers footwell

Hello Tom, both is new: I bought a new carpet from "world upholstery & trim". The type is called "Wilton Navy" and matched the most to the original. How do I know? My car is very original throughout and I found several sections of carpet which looked very much factory fitted such as the ones around ...

Looking for contact in Italy for engine rebuild

Hi, I decided to completely restore the drive line of my 250 GTE - engine, gear box and overdrive. I live in Austria and look for a dedicated Specialist who repairs these Colombo V12 regularly with dedicated experience. Does anybody know a good workshop with reputation in Italy, Austria or Germany? ...

FRAM oil filter - worst in quality test

Hello guys, I guess most if you use FRAM oil filters for our 12 cylinders. Keeping in mind the value of our cars I guess none of us would be thrifty and we look for the best oil filters available. In fact I always thought this would be the FRAM, but if you watch this video you know better - this is ...

Re: Is this heater control valve original?

Hello Tim, thank you for your reply - you are absolutely right, it is the heater control valve - sorry for my bad technical English, in German you call that a thermostat. Anyhow, good to know that it was used at 330‘s, so it is a least Ferrari related. My belief is that it is wrong for the 250 GTE, ...

Re: Horn Detailing

Hello Tom,

This is what my horn assembly looks like. The trumpets seem to br aloy only, no paint. I am rather sure that this is untouched due to the history of the car.
