Hi Deni, the outriggers are 300mm from the edge of the lip on the cross member (325mm overall) with a 100 x 60 x 4mm box 800mm long welded across the ends, it ends up just inside the body shell on mine, hope that helps.

Patrick, when I made my grille it was a labour of love as it took quite a while and I haven't really got enough spare time to make another and my galvanizers and powder coaters did it as a favour for me as we send them quite a bit of work, so the cost would end up quite high pal as the chrome powder isn't cheap, sorry. cheers.

I'm doing some work preparing a Vitesse chassis to accept a Miglia body at present and can confirm that the rear outriggers need to be trimmed down to / or replaced with a section approx a foot long too ...I have also tied the two together with a piece of angle iron across the rear ..they are quite vulnerable in their standard format ...

Seems to be creeping up quite nicely ....

The phrase ''Bespoke one off with custom shell'' made me smile .... Reminds me of my old mate Ricky Battistini who used to run Battistini's Custom Motorcycles before he emigrated to the States to initially work for Arlen Ness ..he did a range of bikes called the ''One of a kind series'' !!

Cheers Paul, ebay screwed us really, the first ad had 4k+ views 400 watchers and 27 different bidders pushing it up nicely but then ebay received a complaint that we'd put "NOT FERRARI" in the title off some (insert expletive) and cancelled the auction then when we re-listed we did it wrong but hey ho. apparently its against ebay regs to put a brand name in the header if they didn't make it, which is crazy as there's 000's on ebay right now listed as ferraris, lambo's and lancia's that are exactly the same, kits. Its a bit annoying but what can you do, there's a few people emailing asking to come viewing so we'll see what happens.

Only just catching up on the forum and saw yuo've put the car up for sale. I'm really sorry to hear that, but totally understand that these things happen, so i wish you all the best with the sale and especially with the-bay-of-e and their interesting rules!

I was aware that Ferrari don't take kindly to knock-off's and do tend to occasionally chase and close replica auctions!

Ebay have a team that flag up incorrect termanology in adverts as well ...it's not always a complaint , they do action a few removals themselves . I think you should re-list it going down a similar route to Towed ...maybe not so long !! but the route of 'Special build' Its no secret that the words 'S*mmio' and 'Miglia' can hold values back a bit sometimes ....
