    Re: F40 Kit with donor on Ebay - not mine

    The quality of this kit probably reflects the asking price....and the sloppy fitment of it turns off most prospective buyers....

    I always found the front nose of these F40 replicas so very wrong and out of proportion....The front section looks like something should fit on a Camaro, not a Fiero frame...It's so long and ugly as compared to the elegance and beauty of the real F40 (look at the real F40 panels on another eBay auction below):

    Why nobody reproduced the authentic F40 nose for the Fiero is a mystery to me....

    And now it's back Mark....hmmm. I have a feeling if no ones bids it will vanish again prior to auction end.

    wow I was amazed to see real F40 panels on ebay and not selling. I see a LOT of people on this forum that say they can afford 100K for this or that.... and want a cheap F40 kit instead. If I could afford to buy that front clip and rear hatch I'd do it in a heart beat if I was doing an F40 kit. Unless those parts were 50K dollars for the reserve.

    There are no newly produce kits these days. I believe there is one person I spoke to about two years ago who still had three kits left from the early 90s. If you do a search you should be able to find him on the web. If I recall the asking price was 6,000 for bare kit. IF you still have had no luck let me know and I'll try to find the web site.
