Thread: 355 kit question

  1. #1

    355 kit question

    Is it possible (good looking?) to use the original fiero windows and windshields on a 355 replica?

    I looked at some websites on 355 kit's but didn't find anything on the windshields...

    ok...I searched some more and found a kit that could be assembled right on top (so it seems) of the body of a Fiero or MR2 MK2...is this also possible on an MR2 MK1? (if you adapt the kit ofcourse..or make your own )

    most 355 kits use the the original windshields and door glass - the mr2 mk1 I believe is way too small for a 355 body kit though... even the fiero is too narraow and too short technically (But there are kits which have been sized down properly to the fiero's dimensions)

    So, to clarify, the Fiero 355 kitcars do not use the stock glass/windshield?

    Re: 355 kit question

    355 kits USE the STOCK Fiero Front Windshield and the STOCK driver's and passenger's side windows.

    355 kits do NOT use the Fiero's rear glass or rear quater "glass".

    For a 355 kit, you have three choices for the NON Fiero glass...

    1.) If your kit is good enough, buy OEM glass. 348 & 355 Challenge car plexiglass works as well.

    2.) Buy custom plexiglass from a vendor and bend it to fit the rear window surround and the quarters. Hard to do but it's the way MOST kit builders go. Just remember to buy NON-SCRATCH plexi.

    3.) This option only pertains to the rear window... Gen II MR2 Rear Windows can be made to fit by modifying the fiberglass around them.

    I hope that helps
