James May’s Unpimp My Ride: Ferrari 308 GTB

Unpimp My Ride is back! And James May is back too, this time to cure his Ferrari 308 GTB’s terrible affliction. Watch in hushed awe as he stamps out casualness and reinstates the standard on this very special member of his own private collection. Gasp as a ruined car is transformed before your very eyes. Wonder at how such things could ever have been allowed to happen, etc etc.

    Error of judgement! Metal valve caps have an irritating habit of getting water in and then corroding onto the valve. So you cant get the things off! Where was the anti seize paste Mr M?!?!? ps. That's a proper garage btw! None of this "garage-en-bloc" with no power bs most of us have to contend with!
