Mondial t, handle needed

Can anybody help, I need one of the grab handles that are fitted in the roof lining of the Mondial t Coupe.
I've tried most of the usual suppliers with no luck as yet. What I need is somebody who is breaking/parting a car or has one handle spare. Mine are black but they also came in tan and one of these would be OK as I could paint it black.

Call Brian Keagan at Ferrparts : Brian is a nice goto guy and has a T he is parting out.

Ferrari Parts, Huge Warehouse, Fast Shipping, New Used and OEM

Ricambi one of our sponsors carrys the original part, and I would have to look but might carry the NEW, redesigned part made better and stronger: That part is known to fail easyily, and the new one is much much better. Buying the OEM will fail again. IF you are concerned about show quality, the new part might get a ding, but worth it.

Also, a guy on ebay makes/sells them and I'm trying to get him to contact me...sure he will, he makes the below improvement at a nicer cost than OEM.

Handle

Thanks for the reply. However I think from your picture we are talking about different handles....here is a picture of the one I need. I've tried Ferrparts but they did not have any of these.

Ron Frohock's response

Quote:
Hi,
I do have some of these toggles remaining.
I would be happy to send them to you. The cost is $85.00 each plus shipping which is about $2.00.

...Many people have been very pleased with them.

Id also like to learn more about Ferraritilife.com as I haven't visited this site.

Anyways, if it is possible to see if anyone on ferrarilife.com is interested in purchasing toggles it would be good. I know this is a very cost effective solution that us Mondial Cabriolet owners are challenged with.

Thanks for contacting me.

OK: I have seen over the years Ron's solution and believe it is the only way to go. The cost only seems big, but as a solution you'll not have to replace that item again, and since it is VERY strong, you will have an easier time of attaching the roof which is why it broke in the first place: I know. Sometimes a bit*h to put that top up and sometimes it goes up and on like dream.

contact him, and I believe you'll be happy and remember the OEM part WILL BREAK again. no doubt there. So save up front and buy the better replacement IMHO

NOW: To address your posted picture.

What I'm guessing is you have a coupe, and not a cabriolet. I do not recognize that part on the cab.

Is it just the springs that are broken? or a plastic part...difficult to see.

You might want to contact eurospares.com also.
