Olivier, what you've done is truly inspirational! What a great looking car. Unfortunately I don't have the skills to do this kind of thing myself, so I've brought in professional help. My 2400 Spider is currently undergoing a rotisserie restoration with Mark Devaney, main Dino guru here in the UK. After the holidays I'll create a photo blog and post updates here from time to time.

Hello,

I'm new here (proud owner of a 2.4 spider as well), I've been following the restoration with much interest for a while now and I just had to compliment you with the achievement. What a restoration, which definitely shows in the end result :!: What a truly stunning car, I wish mine was in a condition anything remotely close to your Dino.

Side note: Olivier I wanted to contact you regarding the air intakes as shown on the first page as those are missing on my car, but I can't (yet) send any PM's. Do you happen to have the measurements for those?

Again what a stunning car! Happy holidays.

Eric

Hi Eric
Please feel free to contact me anytime, my email is olivier@imsnews.com
The air intake were a bit tricky to make. I used the old set of hinges while making new metal. We got rid of my old ones if you can get yourself used rotten pair I can assist in having a pair made.

I was able to assemble some pretty cool historical document since 1971 on my car.
Simply amazing to have a car with all its history.
