    Make sure wherever you get it from that the shields are 360 specific. I understand the 360 has a different curve in the fender which will require a shield with that curve--not the same as the 355, 348, etc.

    There's a lot of discussion on the SF shields on here and the old board...if you search the archives I'm sure you'll run into a lot of useful info.

    Are those badges is the photo above, off of a 288GTO or an F40? The highlights on the horse are just a bit different than on a 360, 355 etc...

    Get them from your dealer. Get the originals. What's the point of owning the 360 and then try to save by getting a non-original part!

    With the original, you can't go wrong with the fender curve, etc.

    Buttz, the picture that you posted above does not show the true color of the yellow of my shields. Although my picture is on the left side, the yellow is not clear enough to appreciate and is not a good representation of the color.
    I also guarantee that the buyer of my shields will like them otherwise I will refund their money with no questions. The price per pair, with postage, is $230. I also have shields for other model Ferrari's.
    Please note that I have been told by some people that shields are available by others but the color yellow is not correct. My yellow matches the nose badge colors on the car. Thats what you want to get.
    I have sold many pairs of shields for different model Ferrari's. from Singapore to England to the Netherlandas and the U.S..
    All satisfied customers. Good luck with your search.
    Plus......what do you have to loose? Buy a pair from me, at a cheaper price, and get a refund if you don't like them.

    Mario...Lawwdog....thanks for the compliment.

    PAUL the highlights and lines and head are nothing like the real ones for a 360. Futhermore why buy something if it is not what you want. As for the color yellow I posted the same photo you sent to my email so I am going by that. Great that the yellow is a match but the horse is not. I like nicks version alot i think they are true to the originals so if you could leave your contact # nick i would be more than happy to buy them from you. paul no hard feelings i am sure your shields are great for some people just not for me.

    I have to agree. I have the same ones, with the wrong highlights and indeed the color is to bright compared to the real badges or the nose badge. "buttuz", if you look on the back does it also say "Jean Baccarat, St. Tropez", because I got mine from ebay for $80. Good enough for my 308 project, put certainly not for a 360. Also, if you want real badges for your 360 I think they will have to be recessed in the fender, it doesn't look good otherwise and you might as well get stickers or the resin flexible ones.

    Bert,

    Fully agree, to do it right the fenders should be properly recessed. Fairly recently purchased (and had magnetic backing applied) to a pair of cheap plastic resins. Frankly, they look like sh*t, cheap junk, utter hogwash and would NEVER have them on my car on a permanent basis. For temp use to see if i like the shield look on the car they are perfect. If i decide the 308 here gets shields, then will have the fenders properly indented and shields installed.

    As for Mr. 360... GET REAL GUY and use REAL parts. Anything less is an injustice and would make me wonder what other shortcuts have been made to the car.

    Enjoy the Drive,

    why get real guy ? when i dont even know if i want them permanent in the first place. Stickers no way but nicks are true to original so if i can put those on for a day or so and see whats up then make my mind up to have them in the fender or not have them at all and if i choose to not have them at all at least i have some cool shields to have for whatever hang them on the wall ect..
    If I do decide to get them put into the fender what are the details to have that done the right way and i am sure its big $$$$ wich does not matter but i would like to know what i am getting into before i decide to do that. Is there anyone out there willing to explain ?

    Buttuz,

    First, an apology as i fully understand not being sure about the commitment both visually and financially and this precisely why i have the plastic/magnet ones for now. As for what is needed to properly install shields, the fenders would need to be indented inward to make the appropriate space for the shield. This way it is flush with the fender. The shield is attached to the fender via screws, not just taped on.

    As seen below, here is what i'd call a hatchet job. Notice how the fender is not indented so the shield sticks outward and NOT flush. Furthermore, the shied does not have the same curve as the fender and you can see the lower section sticking outward. Not a pretty sight IMHO.

    As for costs, not sure but official Ferrari shields are around $800 or so while getting the fenders indented and shields installed ??????? Anyone, anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Steven R. Rochlin

    Buttuz,

    Not debating the shields, choose what you like. As for myself, if i had a 360 i'd do it right all around, yet it is your car and feel free to do as you please of course. What i AM concerned with is how you may have them installed. Standard is with indented fenders. Again, your call, your choice. Opinions are like petrol stations, they are everywhere. We choose with our dollars the one we support. Of course in the end what REALLY matters is that YOU...

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Steven R. Rochlin

    PS: and yes Nick's shields look nice.

    guys........let me chime in......I am sure Nick's shields are nice but like I said the other day, the yellow in this picture doesn't seem to match the yellow on the nose badge.
    do whatever makes you comfortable.
    although the highlights on my horse may be different, the colors are correct.

    on the other hand..........

    the other shields have the correct highlights on the horse, but the color yellow seems off.

    IMO, the color is more important and more noticeable and will stand out more if on the car.
    Make a decison or go original/factory for about $1,000.

    Kinda curious as to the size of the actual shields. Paulie, yours appear to be kinda super-sized in the width dept. I measured a pair of badges I had a while ago & measured; 100mm x 80mm which I'm pretty sure is the same size as the cars w/ the optptional fender badges. Do you have any measurments you'ld like to share? Just thought size may matter. :eek:)
    Normally I would say absolutely nothing bad about yours, but I don't think the pair I have look as bad as you're always depicting 'em.

    I am not home and cannot give you my source, I will do so next week. I bought a set of four magnetic shields from a fellow in CA. Two small which I put on my Tracker (stop laughing, please) and two standard size for other of my stable. They are very nice and are flexible. Having said that, I recommend that they be applied with 3M double sided tape. First apply the tape to the back of the shield and let sit for 24 hours. Then, apply to the car. These will stay there forever unless you remove them.

    Now, the shields on the Modena are actually inset in the fender so factory shields will not work. However, these shields, applied as above, are not bad. My Mercedes dealer is not at all pleased with the shield on the trunk lid of my wife's E320. Cheers, Ken
