The 1979 Arrow Ferrari Daytona in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop has been having its doors, door cards and centre console modified to have several key authentic Ferrari Daytona pieces worked into the interior of the car.

The first part to be installed was the door lights. This involved very carefully measuring up the pieces as a template and drilling out a perfect hole to fit them.

Next, the door cards for the Daytona had to be heavily reshaped and modified to fit the new Daytona pieces. This involved the team stripping back the door card coverings for the fibreglass backing to be cut and reshaped, using minimal body filler in order to be smoothed out underneath its leather coverings.

The centre console had been reshaped and refined to more accurately replicate the original Daytona piece and match the level of detail in the interior of the 1979 Arrow Ferrari Daytona.
