550 door skin part #?

Looked on Ricambi's site. I see every body panel listed, but the doors. I only see the door frame and trim. Anyone have a link to the actual door skin?

Thanks.

It is called a door frame and includes the skin.

Why all the weird requests on 550s?

Thank you. My father has an accident damaged 550 coming his way, that he got cheap. So, hence the odd questions.

I know it will need some body parts, are the parts Ricambi sells their own or Ferrari parts?

Also, do you know if we will have issues if we buy genuine parts with say door skins or fenders not matching side to side? (Not talking about tweaking for fitment, but actual shape.) I gather that should not be an issue with 550's being modern and having stamped body panels, yes?

Thanks for your help.

Why not let the body shop worry about all that? They'll have sources they are happy dealing with.


And I am curious. Your other story was a friend said the bodies were hand formed.


Which is it, an accident or a disagreement with a friend?

Accident was pre-purchase. Car will not be fixed by independent body shop, but by a family run one, hence my questions. I have a buddy who thinks he knows it all, and I am trying to help my computer illiterate father out, that's all.

His main concern is making sure the replacement body panels match side to side as he is old school. I told him 550's are too new, and the panels are machine stamped and will match perfectly. Am I correct?

Thank for your time.

Forgive me for saying this but any body shop that does not already know the answers to all these questions is going to be in way over their head. Accident repair is not like doing a Toyota just bolting on parts. For one thing if it is serious damage it could take a year to round up all the parts. Also body parts from Ferrari are often not a finished, ready for installation part.

+1.

As an outsider you wouldn't think it would happen, but a friend had a 360 door arrive and it was a full 1cm (1/2 inch) too wide, and needed to be trimmed before it would happen. He also needed to cut the hinges out of a 512TR door because Ferrari had welded them in wrong and they wouldn't fit the car..... This is fairly 'normal'.

You can't order 360 doors anymore, by the way, and other panels of other models are also very hard to come by.
