Lots going on today, I spent a good bit of it helping take apart a Countach. Interesting fact: did you know that most of the body panels on them snap on and off like Legos? They have tabs and anchors, and if you pry them the proper way they come right off. We stripped them off in ~ an hour (we're repainting them all Alpine white) and I helped rebuild the engine, which came loose easily from the chassis, after being disconnected from the transaxle/differential. It all comes apart a lot like a race car. We replaced all the seals, gaskets, pistons, 4 warped valves, water pump, and spark plugs (you have to drop the drivetrain to replace the water pump, or at least that's the fastest way). No wonder Lamborghini charges $4000 to do it. While we were doing that, someone else stripped and rebuilt the carbs, then we put it all back together. They were painting the panels when I left, and we'll get it buttoned up tomorrow. It's like getting paid to play, one of the garage guys said.
I think they're avoiding the younger bull, and I can't really blame them, that's a crazy complex undertaking with very little in the way published assistance.
The GTC/4 is all done, steam cleaned and detailed w/ new rubber, leather, and mats.
It looks good, especially the interior, but I'm thinking about going with a different paint color. Impressions?
