Can I ask why above my wonderful B2 Avatar it says slowest Ferrari Owner????

that's a damn good question

Your car took almost half the time to restore as another well known 308 in Melbourne, AND after todays track day.... that name is no longer appropriate  :thumbsup:

..... What you don't realise is that my 308 was NOT restored in one continuous effort over the 10 year period. There were several long (as in years) periods of inactivity that were the result of my preoccupation with other cars/projects/activities. During these periods the car sat at the back of my garage under a cover awaiting my next burst of interest in the project. So whilst it was a 10 year project, it's not really comparing apples with apples.

Bretts sat for almost a year untouched too.

Doing things at almost half the retail labour rate means sacrifices have to be made !

If the paintshop had delivered as promised, it would have been done in 18 months.

Fair enough; but it wasn't an accurate comparison by any means so I felt the need to point it out.
