Mick,

Not a stradale, Rosso red, Hamann spoiler and if JD can get my 20" wheels to fit then it will be those big bad boys.

Cheers for the update.

Hey Mick, If I was you, I don't think I would want any association with the original poor workmanship of another, LOl

Now its in the hands of JD I am sure we will both end up with the same top class finish.

We've only got to look at what he did to Alex's 360 and Steve's Lambo to see we have the right man for the job  :)

Hi tone ,guys time for an update , one of the jobs iv been on with is fitting the Oem Ferrari exhaust , first I had to cut and remove all the 3mm plate that had been welded in the boot floor and rear panel ,once I had this removed I could centralise the exhaust and get it lined up ,I  ordered and received the new exhaust mounts (Ford Fiesta gearbox mounts )these are what i used on mine and hav proved to be more than up to the job, just got to remove a bit more of the pug chassis ends to clear the tail pipes then weld the brackets on to bolt the mounts to tomorrow ,then I can order some bends up and fab the exhaust ,here's a few pics for now cheers Jd

Post by: 355brian on June 28, 2016, 08:56:05 AM
I love this! What are you doing with the two cans further up the exhaust (ie the cat and that other small silencer)?
My plan is to fit a bypass valve up front before those, with a stubby pipe and actuate using vacuum pipe and solenoid for manual override. The F360 rear box has bypass valves, right?

Hi tone ,guy's another update , iv finished the exhaust mounts, dressed up the rear end, caped the chassis ends and sealed underneath the floor , iv also started the rear bulk ( fire wall for the exhaust ) this will keep all the fumes etc out of the car  iv just got to finish the top part so it seals along the engine cover then order some bends to complete the exhaust, here's a few pics cheers Jd


Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy

You are going to have a 1st class car there, especially with JD on the case  ;D

Hey JD, will you be closing the top of that bulkhead also?

Cheers


Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy
Post by: Sparx01 on July 13, 2016, 10:52:13 PM
Cheers Mick,
the reality is, if it wasn't for JD I definitely would have sold it on unfinished. There were far too many things to put right and with work being manic for the last few years I would never have got anywhere near finishing.

Cheers JD,
for the update. Excellent work as usual.

Hi tone , Guys, time for an update,  firstly after finding a slack bolt on one of the new shockers the previous owner had fitted I thought I'd better go over everything suspention wise that had been fitted ,just as well as nearly every thing was slack as well as the wrong nut fitted to the other shocker ,once that was done I .finished up sealing and painting the the new rear bulkhead ,then before I fitted the exhaust silencer I gave it a good polish it came up like brand new ,the new bends hav arrived so the next job is to pipe the exhaust all up ,also finished up the new pipe work to the tank from the filler neck , here's a few pics cheers JD

Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy
Post by: Mickey_London on August 27, 2016, 09:27:31 AM

Post by: Sparx01 on August 27, 2016, 09:01:56 PM
Well I have just got in from work after a 13hr hard slog and thought I will have a quick browse on Tinternet.

Wow, if there is ever a good little pick me up, then a nice progress report does the trick.

JD, it looks you must have had a good holiday and came back firing on all cylinders. The big question is, are those phat wheels going to fit and if they do, will I only be able to drive in straight lines?   Lol

Nice work and cheers for the update.

Tone

Post by: ferrari360jd on October 14, 2016, 08:52:40 AM
Hi tone ,guys a little update ,iv spent time sorting and pipping  the pug exhaust up to the Ferrari exhaust silencer it sounds good ( I sent tone a video as I can't download them on here as it says they are to big )  also fitted a couple of brackets to the new filler neck pipe to keep it secure , I fed the new pipe work through the car to the tank as this car will be getting a new rear bulk fitted behind the drivers seat as tone has bought genuine Ferrari engine bay panels , as for the wheels I'm waiting on spacers at the minute  but it looks like I can get them to fit but I will hav to tub the rear inner arch a couple of inches but will look the nuts when it's sitting on these bad boys ,
Back on bodywork till the spacers arrive I'm having to completely redo the doors as the previous person fitted the door skins without doing the door handle and hockey stick mod .  Cheers for now jd

Hi Guys,

Hopefully JD should be back onto mine now Brillo's is complete and with seeing so many red versions I am now contemplating a different colour.

The colour I am considering is, Ferrari Blu Abu Dhabi and was then thinking of carbon fibre (hydro graphic) door mirrors etc..

Any thoughts.

Cheers, Tone
