Hi Zorglub,
my congratulations! Now imagine a nice warm summer evening, and driving your spider on a twisty road somewhere between the mountains and the seaside...

What a stunning car and an amazing achievement. It may be the angle of the photos, but the ride height seems just a little high?

Congratulations! You have done some amazing work on this restoration. Everyone of course is going to make their own decisions about the way they restore their car. So I am going to ask - what was the reasoning for deleting the front indicators? These are such an iconic component and balance the stance of the car.

Thanks for the nice words.

Re: the front indicators, my own view is that the car is nicer without. To my eyes, they look like something that was chosen to comply with US regulations. I also saw a picture of a 2400 in an old Dino book without the indicators which I like.
