Thank you for the encouragement my friends !
I saddle soaped the seats and put them in the sun for an afternoon, the leather came to life! Very soft and supple now. They are at the upholsterer to be reinforced and stitched. Then I can start the last phase of the restoration, the final buff and assembly.
I am looking forward to test driving this in a week or two, the 3.0 is sweet, Custom intake and exhaust sound great !
I was delayed for awhile, as 2 younger guys I had helping me, when I had to ask one of them to leave, came back that night and stole all my tools. Been very difficult replacing 30 years worth of tool accumulation. Everything from screwdrivers to wrenches to vise grips to sanders and spray gun. everything. I am buying just basics now, to continue work, as I will be closing the shop in the fall.
First, to finish this beautiful black GTV6, and a sweet Balocco I am building.
