360 Front Undertray

I lost undertray on the 360 very recently. It came slightly loose on the right side and I should have taken it in to get it fixed immediately. Instead I took it out for a short drive, and caught air under it. The whole right side dropped down and I could hear it scrap on the road. Immediately pulled over and then limped home. After a bit of fiddling, I was able to get it off and it is now gone in for repair. When looking at the way it is fitted to the brackets in the front, I have to say I am not impressed with Ferraris workmanship. For a vunerable area on a very low car, the brackets are quite weak and flimsy.

How is it connected to the car? Is it bolted on? Thats really unfortunate ....but the big question...how much did it cost?

It is screwed on and several of the attachment points are quite flimsy.

I will try to get a few when it goes up on the lift to have the tray reattached.

Sorry to hear about the mishap B! Luckily it did not come completely aff for it to cause more damage on it's way out and through the tires and unchassis. Can't be as bad as me trying to park as close to the parking curb and scratching up my lower front fenders to the primer.

You are absolutely right. I am lucky that it did not rip off and blow back under the car.

Bring some 10-16" plastic cable ties. They always come in handy, all my cars have a couple of them for emergency fixes

I just picked the 360 up. They did a great job putting it all back together. Good to have it back.

Thanks. It is good to have it back. Having not driven it for a few weeks, and having just read the article in the latest Forza comparing the 360 Modena to the 360 Stradale, it was fun to get back behind the wheel and rediscover all the little nuiances that make it a great car to drive.
