    Folks,

    I'm looking for a sun shield to put in the windshield of my 355 (to prevent the dash shrinkage) anyone know of some place that carries the pattern? I checked Cover craft and they dont....idealy I'd like to get one with a Ferrari Logo...

    I find it strange that they don't have one for the 355. They make them for Tr's although when I got it it didn't fit. It was too tall to put the sun visors down to hold it place. I went through Autogeek.net (nice name ehhh ? in fact I'm now known as Autogeek in work :) ) and what they did was have Cover craft send me a kit to have one custom made by them. Basically it's a clear plastic template that you indicate where the windshield outline and r-view cutouts are. You sent it back to them and they make it based on the template. I just got the kit and haven't yet had a chance to set up the template. They're the best on the market IMHO. I've been using them for years.

    I bought a 'Jumbo' sized red windshield cover at AutoZone.
    The took a sheet of red ruby mover's paper & made a pattern of my windshield. Removed the binding from the cover, trimmed it to fit the pattern.

    I then sewed the binding onto the now custom fitting cover while watching the F1 races. Don't recommend that, it's real easy to put a needle into your finger whenever Schumaker trys a tight inside pass on a curve(DUH).

    Guess I could pick up an adhesive F* logo or cavalino & stick on the center of it.
