Any pics of the top of the seats? I like to see just how much clearance you have near the inside roof using those seats.

Thanks.

Nice, 2 items of criticism for you, I think the car would be much more convincing if the wheels where spaced out so they are nearly flush with the body, 7mm or more it looks like, maybe less.
And does the wing have F40 embossed in it like the real thig? if not i would get a decal of it like this

Thanks. Hmm. I might have room for the chop?

Who did your carbon door/latch/bezel surround?

Madcurl - The seats might be lowered a bit if you used a different kind of track. I used the fiero track bolted to another piece of steel stock with holes drilled in that to match the momo seats hole pattern. That probably added about 3/4" or 1". I'll check it out and post pics of tracks if you want. The carbon fiber dash pieces were bought off of ebay - they are real CF and if you want i can get you the guy's name that i bought it from. I installed them myself - pretty easy.

Hmm. I know that Archie flattens the stock seat rails. I don't know if it'll fit with additional hardware?

My Corbeaus came from a forum member, but the rails came with the seats originally and were meant to fit the Fiero, according to the label on them. They sit so low to the floor that I can't get my hand under the rail at any side to retrieve CD case, pens, change, etc. I have to floor it so they slide out the back Anyway, I don't know exactly how far it is from the top of the seat to the roof, but I can find out if you like. Also depends on how you adjust the seat. If you slide it forward and lean it back, you can get it pretty low, but it depends on how tall you are. One big piece of advice: Don't get racing seats unless you have a tilt steering wheel. I tilt mine up every time I want in or out, its ridiculously hard otherwise.

I love the car, but you should definatley install a V8 Turbo or s/c and chop the top so the rebody looks right. That roof is just too high. but overall nice car.

Netpro55 - chop would be hard - rear hatch+glass window would have to somehow be redone to meet new roofline. Lots of $$ i'm assuming

Madcurl - i'll open her up tomorrow

I have to agree one great looking replica. I am having one built now and hope it looks like yours when it's finished. Your going to have to put a real motor in it because you'll probabaly be challenged at every light! Take care. Bill
