Man that looks sweet!! But I'm not feeling that windshield wiper, it draws to much attention to its shelf and takes away from the car. You know that car will never see rain, just put some rainx on the windshield and take that wiper off and put it in the trunk for emergencies.

Looks like my work car may have the solution to that problem. If I can next week I'll test my idea.

Well hey, I'm passively in the market. If it was discounted, I may have been tempted to pull the trigger.

It's been several years since the intorduction of the MadArch wide body kit and it seems that the kit is still going strong.

I just started reading through this thread and I must say that some of the most beautiful Fieros that I've ever seen appear here. My hats off to V8 Archie for transforming the Fiero into a modern sports classic. V8 Archie's evolution seems to have led to a complete custom car operation similar to the likes of Boyd Coddington and Chip Foose . If I had the big bucks to invest, my Fiero would be there right now. The custom widebody work has great eye appeal, excellent proportions and looks terrific. Outstanding examples of automotive art.

If you want to update your Fiero from the 80's and into the 2013's and beyond. Get the MadArch widebody kit.



Go wide my friend, go wide.

You need to donate your car for full panel "splash offs" can be taken, or do "light scan", so molds can be fabricated for a full kit. While I really like the look, accident replacement parts can be very costly due to the amount of labor required.

Just imagine within a few more months no doubt other wheel designs coming soon on the market. I guess that pretty much mutes any comments regarding "expensive wheels for Fiero's anymore.

You might want to ask for the hub bore size to see if it's 57.1. Either way, a machine shop could easily fix or if too large use hub centric rings.

I like the MadArch kit but I'd like to see it with stock front fenders. I've requested a photoshop but 85SEnochie hasn't had time to do it yet. Of course that would require the rocker to be tapered in at the front to mate with the stock fenders. Other than that, I'd do it if I had the money. Hopefully, this will still be an option when my finances improve.
