I recently got a 1980 Ferrari 308GTSi, primarily as a restoration and project car.
I first fell in love with Ferraris from watching Magnum P.I, and this is the Magnum car, so...
I'm planning on making sub-pages with details on some of the repairs for others.
I've been trying to keep a list of what all I've done to it. I've managed to forget many of the things (many of them are a "while I'm in here I might as well just..." type events). Here is an initial list, from April 2014 to August 2014:
