The resistor block located on the backup ignition coil gave us quite a few challenges along the way of what we thought would be a simple task. Of course it was stripped and painted like other parts we have done. Likewise all of the hardware was stripped and re-plated to original finishes. When we thought we were all finished we discovered that the resistor came with a stamping on top. Again artwork needed doing and another painting stencil was made to replicate the marking. In the end it was a massive amount of work for a part that will spend its life behind a cover in the trunk.
The following photos show the process of restoration followed by an incriminating photo of a practice attempt that is likely to end up having me spend a night on the couch. All necessary sacrifices when restoring an old Italian car.
