308 GTB: undiscoverable part

Hello everyone, I'm sending you this mail because I have a big problem. Since one year, after been seriously overhaul, my 308 GTB drysump is at the bodywork, there were a lot to do because it has been done very badly in the past. Well now the car is fine, paint is done (4 coat original painting) but when they set up again, they broke a grill they thought it were in metal but it was (and is) in plastic. It's the grill which are after the quarter window custod to mask to gaz fuel top, it goes on two hinges (this I could find some again) and there's a magnet to mantain it close. This grill, unfortunatly, I couldn't find one, I've try in France (via my dealer), in england, via eurospares, superformance and ferrarispares, in US via ricambiamerica, Mc Cann, ICP and ferraripartsexchange, and I haven't found any. Please, if you have some ideas, or if you know a dealer where I can find such grill, thanks helping me, of course the car can run, but something very obvious is missing !!! I will post the image later today

Mario,
Steve may have lost a few points for inattention there but he still has plenty of points in the bank for sharing all his Ferrari knowledge and just being a cool guy all around! Today is the first day of spring so he's probably just got racing on his mind.

Jephma,
I'll keep my eyes and ears open for you. If you locate them please check back with us and share your source!

Sorry for the repeat. yes, have racing on my mind with the new (to me) open wheel race car. Have indeed been busy setting up my new, custom enclosed aluminum trailer (gone in the open trailer pete saw at NHIS).

Pete, hope you can join me at the track for a few events, though the SCCA events NOT open to your car, the COMSCC and NHIS open track days are. PLEASE track the 308 this year Pete


My race schedule of over FORTY track days can be seen at http://www.enjoythetrack.com/race_schedule/
Also note the new (to me) open wheel car and will post more pics and on-track videos beginning in early April

Picture

Here are the picture but I think everybody understood which part I was talking about. On the pdf of the 308 parts section of the website, I can see that the part number 60370004 is listed for 103 GBP but how do we do to contact the dealer, I'm not a user of that service, is there an elite menber around who can explain to me ?
Thanks you very much for your help.

Hi everyone,
I'm still looking for my missing parts, I've try all this dealer twice. I post again to know if you have other ideas or link to breaking' car dealer to continue because that part seems to be not longer available in Europe and US, but I have a good news (!?) this is a part common to GTB from 308 (75) to 328 (89) so I keep hope... what about Australia, is there anyone from this part of the world ??

Hi Jephma, try emailing
[email protected]
Mark the email for the attention of James and tell him you have been recommended by Alun of Alsa in South Wales.
I know you have tried them previously but some personal contact may help, the other company to try could be QV in London, I've never dealt with them though. www.qv-london.com
Good luck & let me know how you get on.
Best wishes, Al.

Thanks very much still people looking at my deseperate post, both mail are gone right now, so I let you know about the answer.
Questions to everyone:
have you ever heard about a factory who could re-do it from an example ?
I've read an interview from Jean Todt they have in Maranello a service who care about vintage car (Ferrari Classiche), do someone have their mail in case they also do "in between vintage" car ??

Suggest you send an email to : [email protected]

Ferrari Classiche should be able to help. Any models over 20 years old now fall under the Classiche group.
