Well, you've certainly made a believer out of me. You are doing genuinely first quality work on this car. You just have to wonder how many times in the past it had some paint slapped on it and sold on . . .
Have you taken the windshields out yet? I presume you have. The reason I ask is that the Zagato method of fitting windshields is unique (as I'm sure you've discovered) to Zagatos. I found 'one' article on the subject a number of years ago and, of course, promptly lost it. I know the aluminum surround is used to essentially wedge the glass in place, but that's about the extent of what I know. The windshield issue is one of those obscure but important pieces of information that is essential to restoring Zagato bodied cars so I'm sure you'll get around to it in time.
This is probably the most complete photo record ever done of a Flaminia Zagato restoration.
It was good talking to you at the Concourso. It was also good to meet Max and Sarah.
