Very nice correction work!

Tomorrow I'm heading out for an initial inspection of a rare 1985 288 GTO and should be working on it here in the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to that one.

What were your impressions on the E-Zyme on red? I've used it on silver and black so far, and really liked the clarity and wetness it provided.

Sweet. I have loved that model since Nick Cage drove a Silver ext./Red int. Maranello in Family Man.

Got any interior pics? I followed your link, but it was all exterior shots.

So, how fast did you drive it before you started the detail work?

Amazing correction work! What do these owners do to their cars, wash them with rocks?

I bet she looks better then the day she left the factory.

The 288 is a beautiful car. Post pics when you can! E-Zyme on red looked quite nice. Wetness was very pronounced, more so than the Zymol I tried on one panel.

It cost just below $2,000. $50/hour x 40 hours.

The 550 and 575 are my favorite F-cars of all time as well.
