I want to rpaint my light aloy weels on a 1970 365gt. Do anyone have the right paintcode? It's probably the same as other models in that periode.
Thanks a lot.

Hi haarekhot,
I found the below quote on the following site by searching Campagnolo paint.

http://www.banzairunnerpantera.com/documents/pantera_upgrade_tech_info.pdf

Campy Wheel Color
"Ford TSB, Bulletin #11, Article 92.
Service Paint- Magnesium Wheels
Color: Argent Silver
Ditzler Part No. DX8555"

"The absolute, dead-nuts, spectacularly accurate modern color match for original factory Campy wheel paint is: DBC 3822C, known as Bright Silver Poly. Not only is it the right shade of silver, but it also has the correct metallic content. There were several variations on this color available that were, in fact, the same 'color', but had more or less sparkle added. Apparently it is an OEM GM color."

I don't know if the paint is correct but I think all Campagnolo wheels were painted in the Campagnolo factory. Don't forget to use a Zinc Chromate primer on the wheels immediately after stripping and cleaning. Otherwise, the paint probably won't stick.

I've tried to attach a photo of what mine look like after painting, without the chrome trim. I'm new here so I don't even know if it's possible.

Another caveat. I did not use the paint mentioned in the quote. I just found it today. I actually chose a paint from a chip book. It was also a GM paint color but I don't know which one. My painter forgot to write down the code on my receipt. If you contact the Auto Color Library web site, they can probably help you. Their link is available on the Ditzler Auto Paint web site. Ditzler was the Ferrari paint supplier for our cars. Apparently they supplied Campagnolo also.

Hi Paul,

First, my paint color, according to the Ferrari Color Certificate (available by joining the Ferrari Owner's Site at www.ferrariowners.com and applying for the certificate), was Grigio Ortello 2.443.813 . I also found that it is PPG 32780. I don't really know what the actual "code" is. In English it's called Ortello Gray Poly.

I have never been able to find out if there was a paint code sticker on the car or where it might have been located. I bought a blank Italver paint code sticker from Parker Hall (Kilimanjaro Designs) but don't know what to write on it or where to stick it.

Second,I can't take credit for the tool to remove the chrome rings on the wheels. I got the instructions from Kerry Chesbro' restoration site.

http://www.parrotbyte.com/KBC/ferrari/330GT.htm

Attached is a photo of the removal. It worked great. Just follow Kerry's instructions to the letter. Be patient. They're fragile. They go back on by going around the inner edge with a piece of wood and tapping lightly. The rings are a "press fit" on the hub.

Good luck, and keep me informed. Don't hesitate to ask me anything. I've been through it all with mine.

hello Tom
Thanks again for useful informations. I bought my car last year so I havn't got to know the car so good yet.
Do you have any informations about setteing the right tenson at the timing chain? As you know this can only be adjusted mechanically. There has also been a lot of fuzz with water leaking from the water pump. It's probably the "anello di tenuta frontale pompa acqua" Do you have any recomodations?
regards Paul
