That`s a nice replica made in Brazil in the 80`s. Maybe the best 356 C replica ever made.
Take a look:

Not sure about the paint work. Look at the 2 closeups of the paint, I think one is at the 40 second point. Not that I know about painting of course, but just my opinion.

My father was involved in the ENVEMO project, and after production was halted the molds went to a few different companies before winding up back in our hands.
The coupe body molds were just about destroyed in a field fire, although most of the smaller molds survived. The cab molds are in good shape and we are producing between 2-4 cabs a year. I have 2 in the shop now, one getting the final touches and the other just out of paint.
I also own an '82 cab and an '83 coupe.

Appears to be the normal amount of "Orange Peel" for a mid-60's German car.[/img]

As I said, I know very little about painting, it was just my observation. ;)

Mark, You've probably forgotten more about painting than most people will ever know. :D :D :D

Nice car, Carey, and good to see that you've sorted out the 'bathtub' rear seat - the only replica I've seen that has addressed this.

Shame the hard-top moulds were destroyed, though, that was gorgeous!

I guess you are the last and "only" word on painting. Just my observation.
German cars were known for paint jobs with orange peel in fact concours points were deducted and a repaint was suspected if the "proper" amount of orange peel was not there.

Ouch! :( Dont be so mean, it was just an observation. The orange peel is from heavy acrylic enamel paint. Actually most of the original cars that I have seen are lacquer and the flow is quite good.

I am definitely not the final word, but have had over 400,000 cars painted under my control over the last 10 years and reasonably knowledgeable on the subject.
