    • @northtexasrangers : I think you're right. As much originality as possible is the best option. Maybe the paint was damaged to much.

    • What was wrong with the og paint? Shoulda tried a cut and buff and super detail first. Not trying to be a downer. Keep up the good work.

  • It has been a full on restoration for quite a while now. So keep it white and original, do not mess with it. If you do change the colour you will regret it later on.

  • How rare was that car in white? I'm not a white car guy (I like blue colors), but my gut is saying a color change really might not be a good idea in this case.

  • Given I think you said that this was the only RHD in white of this car, and the lengths you have gone to preserve its originality one way or another, you clearly aren't gonna change the colour. For the screen, it's not worth the risk of breaking it, if theres no damage around the seals theres no point in removing it purely so you can paint an area no one will ever see (especially as im sure you will be getting the exact shade of white), it may be worth just taking extra effort to paint in that area, which may take some time, but likely not cost as much as a screen replacement.

  • The general consensus is to keep it in its original white, and I would normally wholeheartedly agree. I remember how very popular white sports cars were back in 1984, along with Don Johnson, Wham, Duran Duran, box jackets with the sleeves pushed up and big hair... ...so for that reason I'm going to suggest breaking the golden rule and changing it to silver....

  • Scott - love the vids. If it was red then I’d say change it, but since it’s white please keep it white!!! A 512 bb is rare and especially in white. It looks awesome! (Ok if you don’t like white then go blue :)). Thus is coming from a red 83 QV owner. Anything other than red! And wow - you weren’t kidding when you said ‘bare metal’!!!

  • Its a classic Ferrari and came from the factory in a rarely done colour, keep the white. The tyre pressure stickers you could redo as a water slide decal, like an airfix model. Print your own and fit it in place before the clearcoat goes on. that way the clearcoat seals the label in, I did it on a custom racing wheel and joystick rebuild. It will never get rubbed off or peel away under cleaning and always look brand new. Keep going, wish I had a garage at home to do a rebuild.

  • Assuming no rust in the windscreen area and if you can replace the windshield trim, I would pull the trim, tape and protect the screen and paint t the car, then reinstall the trim. Catalyzed paint ( aka 2k or 2-pack) doesn't melt into the previous work, and once it dries, new 2k doesn't melt into it. The catalyst chemically alters it so once it sets, that's it. The point is, your edge will show and eventually peel back if you leave it exposed. Paint beyond the trim, then cover with the trim and you are good to go.

  • To even see a car like this in such a sad shape and so low mileage, the previous owner has a special place in hell. As to your struggles, it's great to see this car go to someone who cares. So much to do ahead of you in bringing it back to original. I shudder at the undertaking & monumental task you have. Kind of like building the great pyramid of Khufu by yourself! Be ready for lots of late nights & weekends and hundreds ((Thousands?) of hours. What will you do with it when done? Own & drive it or sell it?

You could try using the WDR spider glass removal kit. We use it to remove glass from BMW i3/i8. Might be able to remove the glass without breaking it. wrdspider.com

Regarding the windshield, I've got one truck I regretted not removing it's windshield because at the age of these cars the rubber needs to be replaced - great way for water to get inside. By the way, curious why you went with the orbital sander versus a chemical stripper? Thx for doing these videos and letting us follow along!

  • Keep it white. Jim Hall used white on the Chaparral racer cars he raced, they stood out from the rest. You said that this car was rare because very few were right hand drive with that paint combination and blue interior. White it is. That way you don't have to try and remove those stickers. Keep it white.

  • You can probably reproduce the tire pressure stickers. Leave the windscreen in place. It's not worth it, just cover them up and mask around the trim if you want to repaint it. As for the colour, that's your choice in the end, but paint it the original white, and if you want another colour, wrap the car over the white. I think it would look great in any colour, but red or yellow would be my choice.
