Ferrari has been discouraging that sort of thing. I think people did not like getting letters from Italian Lawyers.

EVM Rob makes MERA replacement panels and has a great build here --My Mera Style 308 Project - just use the search button to find it you will not be disappointed. Anyone advertising a "Ferrari" kit will feel the pain of the prancing horse legal department. Also check e-bay kit's and replica section. Various kits complete or works in progress are always available.

Which model are you interested in? Air Dynamics may still be making the AD355 if you're looking for an F355 kit ( www.ad355.com/ ). Also, as steve308 mentioned, EVM Rob right here on PFF has made moulds to reproduce a version of the 308. Once Yarmouth Fiero and I are done with an IFG F355 body we have, we'll be putting the panels up for sale... probably in a year or so. There are usually lots of half built kits on the market for real cheap too. Check out the Mall here on PFF and other Fiero sites like Madmechanics.com for half completed kits.

HI all

Check out the website madmechanics.com. The AD355 and AD360 molds were sold to a member there. His name is Bob, but not sure what his username is. This is the best site I know of for Ferrari kit info.

Thanx,

Air-eek.

Archie has these molds for sale. You get one body already laid up with one set, (I think it is the TR) plus you can make more kits to sell! His asking price for molds to make two different bodies is less than you'll pay for one body alone.

Don't advise it if you are not familar with fiberglass, but if you know what you are getting into, you not only get a gorgeous body for your own project, but the capability of producing more to sell.

Just a thought.

lol bob we met about 10 years ago. I came over to your house on my lunch break to see your fiero with a 3.8 in it. you were in the process of making the center counsel subwoofer and you mentioned you were about to trade your fiero for your dads 4.9 fiero. i sold the two fieros i had a couple months later and just bought me another one and wow i wish i would have finished the projects then cuz i love driving the one i just bought. anyway glad your still enjoying fieros, it was a pleasure meeting you. i remember drooling over your car and thought it was extremely considerate of you to let me come over to pick your brain and take a few pics of your car.

Wow. that was a while ago. Time sure flies. I wish I could say I've enjoyed driving the car as much as working on it, but I do enjoy working on it. You'll have to stop by again some time and see the changes. I'd love to see your new one.

As for your request, I think Bartman has the AD355 and AD360 molds although he was trying to sell them earlier this year. I'm assuming you want to use the Fiero as a basis for the rebody. I don't know of a 430 based upon one nor a 430 that's even state side. Even the AD360 isn't bolt on. Sean (MacGyver) used a 360 as his basis to do his 430. It's almost done at Madmechanics. http://www.madmechanics.com...d-360-430-build.html

I have an abandoned AD355 roadster project. The N* engine was installed by a mechanic at a Cadillac dealership in Charleston NC. I drove it Air Dynamics where the body was installed. I installed Held suspension, but then when I bought a Murcielago replica I removed the Held suspension and installed it on the Murci. It has sat ever since. And since I have another Fiero roadster and Fieroaddictions turbo charged N* Fiero GT too it's time to sell some of them. I also have most of an Automoda top and a tan and black Amida interior.

Sorry, it's in storage and I have no pictures. It is built on a stock wheelbase Fiero. The body is an exact copy of a Ferrari with molds splashed off of Ferrari parts. The only deviation was moving the rear wheel wells forward 3" to accommodate the Fiero chassis so that the car didn't have to be cut in half and stretched.

Check out J Dinners roadster on mad mechanics forum. It looks like an IFG or a copy of an IFG because it doesn't have separate rockers. IFG doesn't have the best reputation, but J Dinner does. He built an awesome V12 Diablo and teaches an automotive class.
