Those fender's look great, is it also possible to get the front bumper optionally too? that would be nice so people would get all bumpers fender's and side skirts in one set. Next all you have to do is make molds of a hood, roof skin, door skin, and roof and light section of the fastback clip and you could sell every body panel. Would be great for the people who can't find fastback conversions anywhere

The front bumper is a stock bumper, just slightly modified.

Agreed. I think a Northstar or an Arora would sit nicely under the deck.

I never thought a bubble top notchie could look that good... That is absolutely beautiful. Always been my favorite engine compartment, now it has the hips and wheels to go with it.

think I should do my Indy like this?? (Just kidding OhioIndy, don't have a coronary).

Would be interesting on the Solstice platform... Here's a couple on the C5. (from Advanced Automotive Technologies)





Or Nomad tribute if you prefer...

Thanks.

I'm curious about approximate pricing...... tooooooo Probably only dreaming though

Widebody with front end
Warber hood
Chopped
Engine that can use E85
Cool paint job
wheels
new interior

Unfortunately, I know it is beyond my buying power at this time.


Engine and widebody would be nice but, can you use ordinary wheels with a widebody?

Someone had asked about the MadArch WideBody kit prices.

The WideBody kit for Notchie or Fastback is $1950.00 including the Rocker Panels, Rear Bumper, Door Caps, Fender Caps & instructions. Doesn't include shipping.

The optional WideBody front fenders add $300.00.

Not Bad! Put me down for 2 for #1 & #2. Of course I'm still on pause until I get through my "stuff". Before I start collecting all of the pieces, I'll take a trip up there if ya don't mind.

Update the (complete) engine is sitting in the garage right next to #1 so once I can get moving, I have the hard part done.

BTW that front end that you said you liked looks like a little kid with really buck teeth... no wait I just described me when I was kid.

I've actually changed my mind from buying a full rebody kit - this wide body kit looks amazing and the price is right on. It really works the lines of the Fiero into into a real exotic without pretending to be something else.

As soon as my 4.9 is installed and running this is the next addition to my car.
