April 17th: Here are SV updates made to the bottom of the car.
|Almost finished now. The S and SV modifications are clearly visible. This extra ducting brings more air up into the engine bay. The two small vents were added with the S and the larger vents on each side were added with the SV.|
|Another shot of the ducts.|
|From the rear looking forward. Alan, one of Bobileff's body men, updates his records. Alan has done several Miuras, including two for Joe Sackey: The lime green SV (last SV in the US) and the SV formerly owned by the Shaw of Iran.|
|All this venting should keep the engine cool. The frame rails have been nicely finished off, with the X braces inside, never to be seen again. Hopefully.|
|Bobileff welds this thick piece of steel under the rear of the frame. People often try to jack the car up from this point and without this reinforcement a stock frame dents and bends. My frame now has all of the X bracing welded inside so even without this plate it would be much stronger than stock. Still, this is a great addition.|
|April 26th: All epoxy primered, the frame is done except for a few small details.|
