Found this related to F-40 repair:
http://www.compositescentral.net/showthread.php?t=6026I have an F40 in our shop for work. One issue on the car is the forward under tray has a small piece of material missing. It is a carbon kevlar weave that I haven't seen before. Sorry I can't post attachments but I do have pics available. I am looking for a small piece of cloth to repair the panel. As you are aware the customer wants it perfect.....
One of the guys responded with this:
If I remember correctly, that is a harness weave. Back in the day, Ferrari was using some "non-standard" weaves.
Sounds really, really expensive to find and repair the composite materials.

Hey OP, you mentioned what a blast it is to drive the F40 on Rocky Mountain roads. Have you ever driven CO-113 from Carbondale to Hotchkiss? That road absolutely blew me away - great views, perfect pavement, banked curves, little traffic, and almost no cross-roads.
See my questions above about body repair/replacement. Very interested in how you deal with the unique Kevlar-Carbon body peices in terms of maintenance and accident or damage repair. You mentioned before about the paint quality being iffy, so I'm wondering if the body itself is partly to blame. Maybe they didn't prep the surface correctly? Or maybe, in an effort to keep weight down, used the bare minimum amount of paint/primer.
