    Lots of progress there Mario - well done. I hope you insure it well before you drive it.

    I like the colour.

    Hi again!

    The car runs and drives very good…but I’m moving it to another shop for the past details.

    The tunings will not be deep, but will consist in verifying the electrical system with the addition of new connectors, recovering a corner on the dash, applying the centre console, tuning the front bumpers and correcting the leather parts on the back!

    The wheels will be recovered into the original charcoal colour!

    These works will make the car looks better and will make me rest fine…I’m tired of waiting…


    Let’s go to the works:



    Interior glass trim.

    Peters: Thank you! Next time you'll see some more details...that's the missing part and the reason to move the Z to another garage!
