Franjo,

your work is stunning.

I often have to do with people who speak of themselves as "masters" in their work, while they work in a superficial and inaccurate way. And i can't stand them.

Your work seems very accurate, so i'm sorry when people think your're not cheap.

Good work has to be paid. As they say in London, "If you pay peanuts you got monkeys"

Ι can verify that.
Franjo is persistant and professional.
He took the time to email me many hi res pictures with details of his restoration work to a set of hubcaps for a GT Junior, plus I got a steering wheel centre cap from him which is like it came out of the factory.

I implicitly trust Franjo with my restoration items.

His work is beyond fantastic and he has a very very fine eye for detail. His rates are also very low in comparison to other restoration shops here locally and I am yet to hear anything bad about his work or manner.

If you don't know much about Slovenia then go here: Slovenia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hi, I think the previous owner of my S1 spider must have purchased a wheel from you. I am looking for another wheel to finish my '69 1750 spider. Are you still retoring wheels?

I am looking to restore a Personal wood wheel for my 69 Spider. I have an email out to Mark Wallach at [email protected] to inquire about his services for this work. I am not sure he has an inventory to sell as much as restoring what customers send him, but you can try. Several references to him on this board as well as Ferrari board.
