I need help (400 GT)

Hi everybody

As the most of you know, a friend of me hast just restored a 400 GT. It is almost finished, i've seen the car yesterday and it really looks fantastic, but now they're having a little problem. When you are sitting in the car, it's impossible to open the door. I don't know exactly the English name of it, but it just that silver thing which you can see in the door on this pic which is damaged

Something has been damaged on it, so they can't use it anymore. They went to the dealer, but he doesn't want to sell that piece, because they didn't restore the car there. They have 2 other Ferrari's too (512 BBi and Mondial Qv), which they bought from the dealer, but the 400 GT not... They already searched a lot, but it is hard to find. It's probably the same piece in a 400i/412 and maybe a Mondial too.

I hope you can help us

Jeroen

Your friends can order a new piece directly from Ferrari UK. They stock a large number of replacement parts for the 400/412 series. I posted contact details for this in another thread recently.

door opens again !

the part has been placed yesterday !
This didn't went without problems because they send the doorhandle for the right side and not the left side !!
So we had to use the old part and some pieces of the wrong part to make one working doorhandle.
