    Default Welcome & good luck with the rebuild

    At some point you'll come across Eurospares (whose website also has the parts book) then beyond them there's a few others both in UK & Europe some of whom advertise on Ebay some of whom are more reliable than others (eg Germans & French)

    There several threads here in the past suggesting other breakers - try a search

    Others may have other ideas about other aspects such as the frames which I believe do not repair like traditional chassis

    Let us know how you get on

    Welcome and good luck.

    Plenty of pics please 👍. Tapatalk on the phone makes it really easy to post pictures.

    Prosport Ferrari carry some body panels parts so maybe worth a call. I use my local main dealer and the parts team are super helpful and reliable with good pricing.

    Maranello parts are a forum sponsor so may be able to help also.

    Second what Mike is saying.

    Make a relationship with your nearest main dealer parts department. You may get yourself a 15-20% discount on parts and not be messed around on delivery plus helpful advice.

    Eurospares will provide the parts but at full retail cost and when they can be arsed to deliver. But they wont tell you when that might be.

    Sage advice...

    Most of the time eBay prices are more than the main dealer unless they are private sellers. Maranello / Dealer do have differences in price sometimes due to pricing policies not always aligned. Thatís my approach and maranello / local dealer get all of my business now.
