I would love to have a wide body on my next project. In fact I need a wide body for some mods that I want to work on. I just don't have any idea when or if I will get around to starting another one? The black Taz chop really got my attention. Of course I have plans to "alter" it a bit

I can deff say that I can see where the cost comes from. I have to say that the kit is quite attractive so I can appreciate their purpose and value and I can also see why someone with other aspirations than I (at this time) would buy the kit.

Big ups on some stellar work guys!

Personally I have never met you. But I have read several of your posts and would love to use your parts. {Eventualy will order some when budget permits}
All have been informative and your work is awsome. Ignore the flamers and continue on making fieros better.
Most of us do see how much time and love you put into fieros. STAY

I have met Archie three times - at the 20th anniversary, at Wheatstock (Topeka, KS), and a couple years ago at Daytona. I have seen first-hand the results of many of his projects, and have talked with many people who are on both sides of the fence: those who support him and believe in the quality of his shop's work, AND those who have taken issue with him. As for me, I have not been convinced by the arguments I have seen & heard against him, and my bucket list (if I had one) would include being his customer when the various factors allow.

I know several personal friends who disagree with me, and no I have not yet done business with Archie, but this looked like the right time & place to toss in my 2 cents worth of opinion.

Archie, MotorTV's widebody looks amazing. That kit really adds sort of a C6 Z06 type of vibe, great work. I definitely want one, though it won't happen anytime soon (sorry, I just don't have the money to invest in my fiero beyond getting it back on the road).

Now would be a good time to get a MadArch WideBody kit.

We have them in stock.

There are 9 pcs. in a complete WideBody kit.



Front fenders are 1" per side wider than stock. These are bolt on.



The MadArch WideBody Rocker panels. These are bolt on too.



The door caps. These get glassed on.



The MadArch rear bumper. This bolts on.



The rear fender caps for the GT body style. These are glassed on & are 3" wider per side.



Or if you're building a WideBody on a notchie, we have the MadArch Notchie rear fender caps. They glaas on & are 3" wider per side.



Get 'em now

Archie

Would these rockers fit a stock body fastback and blend in with the upper rear clip without having to widen the rear clip? I am assuming not but hopeful

Nope, from the back edge of the door to the wheel well opening they get wider as they go back.

Archie,
I think I have a wide body fiero, at least the prevous owner told me so. It looks a little different than the one you show. Do you make several different kinds? Do these cars come from the factory with a widebody?
The one I got looks different than most of the fieros I see on here. I am just wondering if there is some special kind of "handleing" I need to do to take care of it? or can i just wash it like a regular car? The prevous owner did not say.

I like the work you do. You are a mechanic or a body kinda of person? I see both in this posting.
Hope you respond and thank ya.
