Update report - February 16, 2018
Both rocker panels on the Countach had been slightly damaged, probably from careless lifting. We will remove as much of the dents and creases as possible with PDR, before doing bodywork and paint. We are also going to service the car and tune the Webers.



As low as the car sits, the rocker damage is
barely noticeably
