Nice pics!

Don, can hardly wait to see it all back together and on the road! Color looks amazing.

steve308, do you know who made the body on yours? Also, what wheels are you running? Very nice looking replica...thanks for posting.

The body kit was done by ONYX 308 / 328 conversions out of Canada (no longer in business and I have had no luck tracking down the former owners of ONYX) Wheels are three piece 16" compomotive that another 308 owner sold to me as they did not hold air. I had to disassemble, clean and gasket all four and was lucky to get some original bolts from Compomotive out of England as they are not a standard size. They no longer make the wheels

I recently aquired this project not sure which direction to go yet but it's a 355 on a 1985 fiero chassis with a smallblock 350. 90% sure I will swap to a 3800 sc.

steve308: thanks for the info, that's not good news for us that would so like to get hold of a set of those wheels! I wonder if ONYX was, or had anything to do with Fejer's operation, as the body looks strikingly similar to the body we picked up in Barrie Ont. last fall...


rodrieguz:Nice! Maybe if/when you get time, you could go into a little detail on your seriesII n/a swap, as that's what I'm planning on using in my replica, (actually picked up the engine/tranny yesterday). I'm going with a T65E auto, what setup are you running in your diablo? Sure is a nice looking body!

I see your 355 has the seperate rockers, wonder who made that body?

Thanks for the pics and info guys.

Almost certainly an Air Dynamics F355 (AD355).

I have no clue who made this body, boy I wish I did. It's orgins came from Toronto Canada apparently a company called fiero conversions started this build some years ago when they were around. I have not been able to verify anything, hopefully one day light may be shed.

This is my Diablo Roadster its on a 1985 tub with 1988 front and rear suspension. I orginally built it with a sbc/5 speed and drove that for a year. Today was the first day I drove it with its newly installed LS4/4t65ehd, although the drive was only down the street and back because I still need to tune it. The LS4 is running on Microsquirt (the first to run on 58x) and the trans is controlled thru stand alone controller and is shifted via a homemade wireless paddle shifters. The above pic is kinda old, I will have some new pics soon.

Rodrieguz,

That 355 is the body made by what used to be Fiero Conversions now called Jimmy's Auto. They are in Windsor Ontario. I was there last summer for a visit and went to see Jimmy. He had a 355 body in his molds when I was there. Separate rockers etc.

The body looks fairly decent so shouldn't be too hard to clean it up to be a nice finished replica.

Cheers
Don

Car pretty much back together. On the road soon.

Changes to the normal 308 kits:

Front fender tops bonded to the front clip for more oem look
- Smaller front hood more oem look
- Extended windscreen
- Custom headlight buckets closer to oem look
- Copied Ferrari 308 front bumper
- Side scoops cut out and shaped to have a full scoop into the engine bay
- Gas filler up in the sail panel more oem look
- Fiero GT rockers removed and replaced with SE rockers for nicer rounded look

Cheers
Don

Do factory rebodies such as Meras qualify for your registry?

Been driving my Kelmark bodied 84 4speed for 2 weeks. Few minor bugs, biggest being the rear control arm bushings. After 3 yrs of work it's nice to hit the road.

I almost got my Diablo back together since I completely repainted it, the car still needs a good cleaning and a final buff. Sorry the pic kinda sucks it was just a quick snap....

It's a pile of parts and ultimately will not be a replica of anything, but instead it will take design cues from several models, but I think I can say I'm an official member....



will be

Way to go Bob! It's nice to see the kit car and replica segment of this forum gaining some momentum again. We need guys like you to showcase more of the creative contributions we have to offer the Fiero community.

I never got an answer to my Mera question but I will post a few photos of various cars that have lived in the basement. Some are finished as show cars (gray and red t-top), one is about 80% completed (black t-top), and one is a 50% complete project (red hard top). All Meras are mechanically and electrically sound, use Getrag 282 transmissions, and have completed engine swaps. The F308 rebody has a stock V6 and the manual four speed transmission.

87 Mera (gray) - 3.4 turbo

87 Mera (black t-top) - 3800 SC Series II

88 Mera (red t-top) - 3800 SC Series III with performance goodies

88 Mera (red hardtop) - fuel injected 383

F308 rebody on an 86 SE frame.
