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.

Post by: ferrari360jd on June 28, 2016, 12:09:38 AM
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


Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy
Post by: 360brian 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?


Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy

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
Post by: Mickey_London on July 13, 2016, 09:15:28 AM

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.

Post by: ferrari360jd on August 27, 2016, 12:16:34 AM
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

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

Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy
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

Hi Sparks , guys , well now Chris's 355 is finished and gone and I'm not taking any more day to day work on I can now concentrate on the last couple of cars ,
So time for an update .
I finished the bulkhead behind the drivers seat then covered this in black carpet to match the new seats ,
Next I fitted the bulkhead window ,then totally sealed it all in which means no fumes also means I can leave the top of the exhaust showing which will look so cool with the fake engine ,
Next up was to fit the 2 genuine ferrari engine bay side panels these really finish the engine bay off .
Also fitted the boot and bonnet catches ( just as well I had a spare car for all the little bits that were missing )
Then I fitted the seat belts and made and fitted the seat frames for the new seats ,
Here's a few pics for now cheers jd


Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi tone , guys , here's another update , first iv fitted all the cables for the bonnet ,boot and petrol catches, all working great now , then iv fitted the washer bottle and washer pump off the spare car, we now hav washers ,
So with a few more little jobs off my List it was time to start on the Audi window conversion so started on the drivers side , iv got the Audi frame all cut to size ,the pug door all trimmed and bolted the Audi frame in place ,next it was time to fit the mock up window ( a spare  scratched one I use ) into the frame and check it all fits ok which after doing so many now it does lol , ok then it was time to alter the roof lip so the door window rubber fits perfectly into place. So iv just got to dress it all up then fab the bracket for The altered  window motor and test it all goes up and down ok that's next weeks job , here's a couple of pics for now cheers jd

Hi Guys,

We've popped over to Cardiff this weekend to see the sister-in-law and the next door neighbour has only gone and parked is Ferrari 812 in the street. It was dark when we got here, so will try and get a pic or two in the daylight. I have a feeling it is in the Abu Dhabi Blu that I have been considering, so this may make my mind up.

Hi tony , guys , this weeks progress , OK with the windows finished it was time to start fitting the front end, but before I could do this  allthough it had been fitted( badly before) there were a lots of little jobs to do first, Ie move the battery and extend the wires to the rear of the car and secure it in place , next up was to trim the inner wings and move the fuse box,, secure the air condenser and move the evap bottle, so once I did all these I also made and fitted a bracket for the header tank and extended the hose and the wiring for this. Next up was to do the wiper move so with new brackets made I proceeded to fit this in the correct location ,job done so I thought lol this was when I found there was no live to the wipers and a dead short , on investigation I found some melted wires  so with these replaced I thought it would be sorted but not so easy it still had a short so on checking to see what was and wasn't working on the car I also found the heater blower unit is not lighting up or working either so further investigation needed at a later date,  so with the little jobs done on the front end it was time to line up and fit the front end , once it was all lined up and gaped it was time to bond it all together with the front bumper , wow now it looks like a Ferrari  :) here's a few pics for now cheers jd

Post by: ferrari360jd on February 19, 2018, 10:00:36 AM
Hi tone , guys ,this weeks update , again a busy week full of little jobs , first I removed the engine cover as the rear roof section needed bonding to the car , once that was done I moved on to the engine cover, as it was already off it was an ideal time to cut the hole in for the third brake light and  bond some brackets inside to bolt the light to another couple of jobs off the list ,I then bonded some bracket on the side of the rear bumper so it can be bolted on securely,
Next up was to cut the holes in the bumper for the no plate lights I got at the breakers , here's a few pics for now .

Also here is a pic of the pink relay we need tone . Cheers jd

Hi tone , guys , a few more jobs ticked of the list this week,  first I preped and primed the rear light panel and headlight units , then I laid some colour on the headlight buckets  ( they look mint ) next I trimmed and fitted the headlight assembles together , so they just need all putting together and fit the lenses when I get back , here's a couple of pics cheers jd

Cheers Guys,

Just got in from work having a quick browse through the forum and spotted the previous image of the blue 360 car and panicked because it looks a lot darker than the blu abu dhabi pearl (2013 colour). Looking at the headlights that are sprayed, it does look more similar

Looking good JD, Cheers.

I popped over to JD's on weds to finalise the car colour and for an update or two.

After a quick visit to the paint suppliers and looking at a lot of different shades of blues, we finally found the one. It is a pearlescent blue instead of metallic just like the cars in the photos.

 As usual, JD was such a nice guy, very welcoming and very knowledgeable.  We went for a bit of lunch down the local and I would definitely recommend the steak.

Cheers JD for a great day.

Ok so been on with the wiring faults today , the  wiper relay combined with a bad earth fixed the wiper fault ,

Can I ask about the wiper fault, my wiper (406 coupe) doesn't stop at the correct return (resting) position, am looking for clues.

Cheers

Hi tone, guys , time for a little update , I managed to make a start on the dash conversion before moving to France , I got all the dash cut out and sealed up all the openings so all the air was directed through the new vents , then made the new panels to take the new Audi air vents which are pretty close to the ferrari ones , next up was to key all the dash up and fibreglass every thing in place , here's a couple of pics so far ,
Ok so I'm back in England for a week and my target is to get the dash all finished up and the interior all back in , cheers jd

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question.

Looking to sort the steering wheel and have seen both Mickey's and Alex's but wondered if you used a universal 320mm Momo  wheel

Cheers, Tone


Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy
Post by: 360brian on October 11, 2018, 10:36:26 AM
I used a universal 245mm MOMO on the 360, looks and feels great, but IMHO a 330/335 would better still. I've tried various sized wheels by printing image to scale and superimposing the Thrustmaster centre, to check if the spokes line up (you should do this before buying the wheel). Not found a 320 sized wheel that lines up, but would be good if you could find one. I fancy a black suede momo with yellow stitching now. You should be able to keep the paddleshift, and get the start button and manettino to work (I did, except the manettino, but know someone who did that too), see here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnk8i5vfjL0 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnk8i5vfjL0)

I've done this mod twice, on the 355 replica originally back in 2009 (using Momo EVO [not too keen on the chrome bits on that wheel ended up spraying them black], as here:

(http://i1358.photobucket.com/albums/q769/coffeebarman/Adapting%20Thrustmaster%20F430%20to%20Momo_zpsq5hnlb9r.jpg)

and on the 360 I have now, as follows:

(http://i1358.photobucket.com/albums/q769/coffeebarman/11703228_10152922060417805_4143018741978044348_o_zpsny6gpwto.jpg)

Oh, and be sure to keep the thrusrmaster F430 pedals if you have them, I've fitted those chromed cast pedals to my 360 they look and feel great (and work well)

Title: Re: Sparx01 build dairy
Post by: ferrari360jd on October 23, 2018, 09:08:59 AM
Hi tone ,guys well a bit of a slow couple of days , I fitted the centre console up and went to bolt it in the car which ended up being a bigger job,  as I had never had the seats and console in all together with the seat belts bolted in , the problem being the Peugeot seat belts hit the console so I had to take everything back out fit 2 new universal seat belts ,problem solved all back together .
Next up the windsreen guy came and fitted the windscreen he rounded off the corners as usual so that looks sweet ,
Then I realised we had no interior mirror so off to the breakers to get one of them , so not as much done as I hoped but hope to get back on track in the next few days cheers jd , here a pic for now windsreen in

Hi tone , guys , well a busy couple of days with some late nights but I'm getting back on target , I spent yesterday modifying the lower rear suspension arms to get rid of the negative camber created by dropping the ride height , then set up the rear suspension and did the rear brakes and handbrake ready for the mot , then started making the lower windsreen scuttle panel , next up was to paint the black on the lower part of the rear bumper and the top half of the engine cover, today iv been on with the front suspension and fitting new discs and pads and giving her a service , tomorrow it's time to start the rear defuzers and finish the scuttle panel . Here's a few pics for now cheers jd

Good trip today and a cracking bit of local breakfast with JD, top man.

She's not quite finished yet but I did manage to get a couple of pics, although the front views were limited because I was too close to the wall.

JD promises he will take a photo or two when he pulls her out tomorrow. Sorry JD no pressure but it's out there now. LOL

Hopefully MOT'd tomorrow and then i'll be fetching her home.

Cheers

We discussed the Stradale stripe earlier and also the colour of the wheels.

JD suggested the Scuderia stripes rather than the single Stradale. Originally I was going to have the gold stripes and matching wheels but suggestions of graphite grey have left me undecided.

I cant stop looking at her. She is stunning. The colour is perfect. The workmanship from JD was perfect, as always.
You need to get this car to Stoneleigh. It will be swamped
I will be there to hopefully see her in the flesh
I second the smoked gold for the wheels, if you are changing the colour
Or the silver

Hopefully get a chance to see her, maybe at a car meet or something.
