Anyone know of what happened to B&B spyder website? I really liked their widebody kit and now I can't seem to find them on the web anymore. Just wondering if the sold the molds to anybody else, or if the changed the name of their business or maybe new website.

Go with the Archie widebody,..that one from B and B was kind of cartoonish to me.

The mad-arch widebody is 100 times better !

I don't like how the front door line, is so close to the line of the wide body front scoop section on archies kit. I saw that the lines were molded together on that part of madcurls car, that does help alot. I want to see it in person, and on a non super moded car though (I do love his car, don't get me wrong). I still think im going to go for stage 2 scoops.

It's all a matter of opinion, don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking Archie's version. Just saying not everyone has the same taste. I've always like the B&B vert, in fact, I'd like to have one. If I was going to go with one of the current wide bodies, both are interesting but, it's still a matter of personnal taste.

I've only seen one widebody and that was the gold one on their website. The website is gone now. Basically, it was 4 curved fender flares that you molded in to a notchback and it made the car wider.

Personally, if I had to make a widebody notchback, I would go with these guys complete SD4 widebody kit.....although the site looks extremely home-made and they never returned any of my emails.

I do believe there were molds pulled and parts layed up because I saw some body panels at a fiero get together in PlantCity. Telrons house I believe.

Anything over $100 bucks--- I start getting nervous. I don't trust nobody now (and that's companies with a good references).

I'm glad you found a picture of this.

I saw it at the Daytona show a few years ago& fell in love with it.

It looked like a Slot Car & I like that look.

The only drawback I saw with the car is that it turns it into a one pc. body.

The front fender arches mold into the front bumper & into the rocker panels. The rear arches are molded into the rear bumper, the 1/4 panels & the rear clip.

It would be very dificult if you ever had to service it.

Even with all that, I was ready to buy one at the show but they didn't have any at that time.

I took a bunch of pics of it at that show but can't seem to find them now.

Those were the good old days.

Archie

I know I saw some pictures with some body panels but they are all red X's now. I would suggest you right click and save the pictures if you want to keep them.

Yeah, well let's say someone wanted to removed the fenders to install vertical doors, all they would have to do is cut off the fenders, and then glass them back on when they are done, piece of cake right.

I prefer the Mad-Arch kit too, but there is no widebody in my future because of the price of the wheels. Not until less expensive off the shelf wheels are available I won't be doing one.

This is the way I would go also. Looks more like a Fiero. The other wide body kits are not to my taste. I like the IMSA stuff. With the cost of it all, the problem is that it is worth more than the Fieros are worth. You will never come close to getting your money back out of it.

IMHO I like both types; the IMSA and the Mad Arch kit. The IMSA is truly a kit that closely resembles the original body lines for the 80s, but the Mad Arch kit is mainly a newer version, but maintains the Fieros DNA without trying to be anything other than a Fieros. The B&B kit is nice, but like others have pointed out--disassembly is a pain and beside 3" max per side is the entire extra tire you'll ever need.
