Cool or not cool? I think someone could make some custom door skins and then modify quarter panel scoops to mimic the door. This is from a Ferrari 348 or Testarossa. Thoughts?

Looks good, but it might be easier just to apply a large decal.

Never been a fan of faking body lines with decals, or a fan of scoops/vents that do not vent anything and are plugged.

Sorry. Make that no x 3.
Using decals vinyl or paint to simulate 3 dimensional objects no matter how well done will look cheep.

While I LOVE the Testarossa and its sister cars..... It just does not work on the fiero not without MAJOR rework and widening of the body and then it still kinda does not work. Honestly I would say that the Archie widebody with it's scoops and ground effects looks MUCH better on this car. JMHO. Peace

Of all the "features" incorporated by Ferrari over the years, the "cheese slicer" scoops are the one that I never have liked.
I understand the need to "do something new" to your car, but please don't do that.

Sorry off topic, but on topic with your post at least

My biggest gripe are cars with fake convertible tops! Seriously, why the h#%L would you want something to LOOK like a convertible if it was not! Hahah!

You are fond of it or you wouldn't have bothered getting opinions. So why worry what others think?
