What is the diameter of the flange? Would it fit within the stock Fiero gas cap housing?

I have not received them yet but when I do I will get dimensions and more pics. The inner (Red) cap is 4 inches in diameter. I am planning on cutting down filler neck and part of gas cap and mounting flush to my kits body. I will then remove cap and still have my fiero cap underneath. Possibly. It will require work to adapt it to a fiero.

I got the 2 aircraft fuel fillers today - they are gonna be great - only thing that was bad was the plastic cord that goes from cap to filler was so dry it cracked and broke but i won't be using that cord anyways.

I really like those toggle switches. Are they Ferrari OEM? And would you know where to buy them (other than a Ferrari dealer if they are original equipment)?

Hi Rob,

Here are some upholstery shots of your console. The granite 'ultra' suede looks great.

Amida, this looks awesome!!!

Must be even better in person because microsuede/alcantara doesn't photograph well.

How soft is the material to the touch?

WOW!!!!!

I just found this thread, and I'm blown away. That's some AWESOME work going into this project. I can only dream of any of that being done to my ride. But, everyone has a dream, right? Does give me plenty of ideas, though, if and when the time comes.

Not alot to update on but dash is coming along (soon to be done), I spent weekend cleaning garage, washing Ferrobi, playing with new center caps, and put on my nice but pricey original F40 car cover from ebay.

It goes to show how accurate your replica is. The car cover fits perfectly.

Well not exactly - the front is longer so it will not go over front lip and chin spoiler

Well I got some wheel adapters today for the front - hubcentric and wheel centric 1.5". The front wheels have always been way too tucked in and I wanted to get them more true to the body line. This will be temporary as I will be getting the Wide Track Slalom Front Suspension from HT.

Before




After





And the rubbing on the inner wheel well that I knew would happen. I am going to rework and move it back this weekend.

I have been working on my f40 for the last few months and see that you have some parts that I am interested in knowing how to get a hold of them. I am doing a 2003 northstar and G50 setup and did all my body parts as close as to ferarri's and did my own thing as well to help performance. I did a 10in extension on the chasis and did alot of upgrades on the chasis alone. Can you tell me where to get a dash at, instrument cluster and more interior parts that you have done?

10" extension on a fiero for a F40 replica - uh what? think you only need 3" to get it to f40 wheel base. Amida does dash

Rob,

Here are some shots of your instrument pod after clear coating. It's the 5th & only one that I did in carbon which turned out satisfactory. Getting the weave pattern to set correctly without snags is the trickiest part.The carbon fiber fabric makes for a very dimpled surface for painting, even after 4 coats of clear. I polished it down as far as I could without sanding through the finish which smoothed out most of the surface, but there are a few low dimples remaining. Nevertheless, it turned out to be a real nice looking piece. This option is very time consuming & will cost the next guy $450/$800 uncoated/coated.

Thanks,

Rob

Fi40 dash #02 will be ready for shipping very soon. I should also add that Fi40 pod #05 is made with epoxy resin & 9.5oz 2x2 twill carbon fiber + 2 layers of cloth. Vacuum bagged in 2 pieces, subsequently bonded together then urethane clear coated & polished. A very nice piece.
