Very nice work Anthony :hail:

Once you have your website up and running, drop me a PM and I'll get you listed on Madabout.

Cheers, John

Its really looking great. Waiting to see more pictures (front, back, and with the bonnet open to get an idea). Will you have any videos on your webpage ?

I see in one of the previous photos that you have another Bertini ready to be finished, and I also see an unfinished 70,s supercar in the background. If I am not mistaken could it be a Monteverdi or an Iso rivolta Lele ?

A few pictures if the rear.
MOT retest tomorrow. Some internet site sold me LHD headlights. Lucky I have another similar set to use :-)

Nice work, finish is excellent :)

Anthony Cherry 21st March 2014 10:30

Seats have been trimmed in black leather and blue alcantara. With the Bertini logo on them. The door cards and gaiters have also been re trimmed. Should look really smart :-)

That's a smashing colour which really suits it, and I like the graphite wheels too.

After following this project for so long its nearly finished. Just a few more weeks to go. There rear reminds me a little of the Z8. How does the boot lid open ? I see no lock. Will the kit include everything (grills, lights, badges)? Any idea on final price as many will like to know?

i intend to include the badges and grill mesh but not the lights.
they are all readily available and customers may be able to pick up a bargain.

i will be launching the price when i complete the website. but if you want to have an idea them message me on my email or facebook and i will give you a ball park figure.

For information to the OP, Tribute charges around 2400 for their Kobra which offers a similar 'bolt on' easy build. Don't think the badges are included though ;-) Take a look on their website or ebay sale to confirm the price if you want to get an up-to-date cost.

That metallic red really looks good. I have also seen the metallic green and black Bertini photos on your FaceBook page.

Although for me the ultimate finish would be a black 4D glossy carbon Fibre wrapping. ;-)

Does this look realistic, and where can I buy some?

DSG4ME 4th April 2014 12:22

The best wrapping sheets are made by 3M, and the most realistic carbon fibre effect is the 4D which looks like the real thing.
You can find a lot of it on Ebay and many other places. Also many videos to see how it looks on YouTube.

I've used ordinary 4D which I agree is very good but has a satin finish. I didn't realise there was a gloss film available. I'll take a look for it.
