    Air Dynamics AD-360 Update

    Hello All:

    I had the pleasure of visiting with John Watson and his shop foreman last week to check up on Johnís health and wish him a Merry Christmas. We spent about 6 hours together and he looks great and is doing much better these days. John is beginning to assemble his first 360 kit. I will be the first to tell you his workmanship is near flawless. The parts are the quality of factory original parts and some have already been used to replace 360 parts on some Challenge cars. The front hood John pulled from his molds dropped into a 360 like it came with it on that car.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Here are a few shots of a door skin John laid up for the 2006 cook out. Other than the black paint, it came out of the mold looking this straight. All of the molds are completed, the car is so exact, you actually use 360 bumpers (front and rear), the head lights, rear tail panel etc. on the car. If Johnís health holds out he and Elton only need to build a bracket kit, a front fender mold and work out a few other minor details, but by late March he should be good to go into full production.

    This photo is of the door as it comes out of the mold, Just trim off the over burden, block sand and mount. Even John says it will be easier than the AD-355

    I am still a 355 guy but this is very tempting. The AD-360 the way John is building out the kit is going to become one of the very best available.

    That's great! I'll have to try to make it to the next BBQ, or maybe even sooner.

    Good news John is the best and we all know how great this kit will be by just his name, thanks for the update Dave; I hope it will convert to a 430 with a little work.

    I was at the BBQ and saw the panel popped out of the mold. It was phenomenal. Go John go! Put me down for one.

    I remember how that panel popped out of the mold at the last BBQ. The biggest surprise for me was how well the OEM panels fit to the Fiero in the back. I know that the 360 is wider in the front than the rear, I was just on ready to see that the 360 and Fiero to be the same. For my 355, I have 3" spacers in the rear, and by the looks of it, no spacers would be necessary. With the exception of wheels used, of course.
