I personally think that with the Mad-Arch kit the fastback looks wierd without a chop. It seems like there is too much side window in comparison to the overall body of the car. But on the notch it just seems perfect. I am not saying this purely because I own a notch. Just an observation.

I own this page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also think the problem may be the upturned nose on the car looks kind of funny. A lip spoiler is due! OR someone photoshop the nose from the GT-R on the front. See how it looks with a short nose.

That's been an issue since day one of the Fiero, guess Pontiac didn't want to deal with thousands of busted-up noses under warranty so instead they lifted the nose. A chin spoiler/gravel scoop will take care of that.

Big thanks again to you and Curly for coming up with an amazing product to enhance our cars.

At this point one has to wonder..... Would a chopped notchie WideBody look weird? Would a fastback WideBody that's not chopped look weird?

As far as the White non-chopped WideBody above, that car is the original car that the 1st set of panes wes fitted to. It might look good once it's lowered and with the correct size wheels & tires, we'll just have to wait & see.

I've looked at Chuck's MadArch WideBody non chopped notchie & I've wondered if it would look ok if it was chopped.

It all remains to be seen but at this point, you're statement could well prove to be correct to some degree.

Archie


To each there own I think the notchie chopped with a wide body would be even better so I photo shopped this just to see. If I won the Lottery it would be done, talk about pipe dreams hehe.

I'm glad you chopped it, because it does look good.

Man I wish I could do Photoshop.

While I am still very happy with my decision, and still think the Choptop GT looks better,...had i seen Chuck's car in person before i commissioned the work, i probably would have kept my chopped notchie a notchback, saved the money, and went widebody from there !

Again not because i think the notchie looks better, but just because i did not think it would look as good as it does on Chuck's car. His car is awesome !

#4 Before:



#4 After





At any rate a widebody is next for me !

I vote for it! Got to love those Venturi 400 GT. Is there even a kit for it? They're so few of them I just wonder...

that would be a simple mod to do!
the front nose on my car has been modified beacuse it was an AirDynamics 355 nose for the kit car. I had to make the top by hand as well as cut 4" out of the center.
I have changed it even further since those picks as well.
the widebody kit does not realy affect the front of the car that much. just remember anything goes if you want it!

did you glass under the wide body panels or just on the top side. as for glass mods, i have never worked with the stuff so i am not sure how much i should try. bonding panels on and body filler i should be ok with but i am reluctant to do any major mods. you car looks great by the way!
