Do you mean these decals? If so, the dealer I bought my old 328 from said that they had made a stencil that they used to paint the decals on.

Sorry I can't help with the light, I never had one with mine.

If you try the small ads in the FOC magazine, there is someone who sells original toolkits and wheel braces...etc, he might be able to point you in the right direction with a roof cover. Otherwise, I'd try a professional Ferrari restorer like Nick Cartwrights in Derbyshire. I bought my car from them, it was in near mint condition after they had finished bringing it back up to scratch. The zipped compartment in the boot was torn on my 328, they managed to get a new cover made to the original spec, perhaps they can do the same with the roof cover?
Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

Hi Gavin,

Yes....... The inspection light does come with the 328's. BTW... The plug does not fit into the cigarette lighter but to a dedicated hole under the steering column.

This one looks mint and is identical to mine.

Good Luck,

It's really annoying when sellers of cars strip out factory supplied items and sell them on eBay or in the small adverts. Why can't they just sell them with the car and keep it original? Anything to make a quick buck.
There's a guy in the UK who advertises via the FOC, he encourages people to sell tool kits, luggage sets...etc to him, he then re-sells them to new owners who don't have these items at a profit - a parasite:mad:

For 328 supply (factory tools and stuff) you may want to try Barry Cross, [email protected], 001 215 248 4100 (PA). He may have an original lighter. Just a try from the ferrarimarketletter.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for posting a link to what it looks like. I never bothered to look for the inspection light, but when I checked in the trunk today, there it was in a small plastic pouch. Pretty neat, I never knew the car had one.

Thanks again.
Best regards,
Dino

Yes, it was in very good and clean condition. Whilst it may have been pretty to look at, that was also a drawback as I didn't want to dirty it, consequently it became a garage queen. The next Ferrari I own will be driven:D
