    I know pretty much every thing about the shields aftermarket ones that is but i have one simple question and this only implys to someone who has put a factory badge on a non resessed fender the question in hand is does it fit perfectly on the fender or is the curve not right and has to be ressed into the fender.

    this is not a question that I am looking for opinions I just want to know if anybody has ordered the factory shields that bolt on and fit to the fender curvature without resessing them.

    i had bought two sets of metal badges from Nick who is selling them on f-chat. the first set did not fit properly since the curvature did not match the car's. the second set which was bought few months later from him fit perfectly on my old 360 coupe and are realy nice. see for yourself

    the curve of the shield is made to fit perfectly the curve of your 360 fender when positioned in the proper spot. IMO, from the picture above, it seems that the yellow background on the shield looks different than the yellow background on the nose badge.

    I bought metal sheilds on e-bay and they fit perfectly on my 355.

    Still think would have been better if the fender is recessed

    Agreed 100% but i would think that these shields are the second best.

    I DONT THINK I WAS ASKING ABOUT A OPINION.

    Titanium I aggre 100% as well nicks are the best next to the original ones I have nicks and I am happy but I think I want the original ones anyway paulie is right about the difference in yellow but it is the next best shield for a fact I just want to make sure that the factory ones will fit perfect if the fender is not ressessed so I dont through away $1,600 on the real ones and also have a hole in the fender where they drill because the factory ones are bolt on.

    Buttuz, Call Jack Babitt at NJB in Westerville,Ohio (614-891-5678) cell phone and leave message and he will call you back. I think he can get you the badges for about $1200-$1300 and save you a few hundred. Stand up guy and excellent ferrari only shop. Robert

    Cool - Make sure to post some pics. They look good either way, but ressessed would add a nice touch - More than I would want to spend for it though.
