    Glad to help, the Ferrari keys of the era are nothing special.

    I once lost the entire set, as you have:
    You will have to get the ignition switch out, pull it.
    Pull the door cylinder too (just one side)

    Get these to a real locksmith.
    They can disassemble the cylinder and "read" the springs and "housetops", and figure out the cut code of the lost key.
    Same for the door.

    Or, they can also just swap the pins around and make you a fresh key that will render your old ones unusable.
    Might be better, for peace of mind.

    Good luck but all this is exactly my recovery.
    Getting the lock/start switch/column locking rod out was the hardest part.
    My lock guy knew exactly what HE was doing...…...This came out of some foreign car, didn't it??

    Yes sir!

    I assume the shop is paying for this? In which case, "expensive" is just fine...

    Most car dealers run into this problem all the time when customers do not turn in all the keys, they get their contracted "key gut" to come over and make the keys for the locks right on the car. I have had a good key shop insert the proper blank into a 330 and make a copy based on the marks on the blank the lock made. Like stated above the blanks are readily available, and good key guys can make a set in a few minutes on the spot.
