    Air Dynamics 355 Build help with Pictures

    Its been a long time since my last post but in late 2006 I was in a bad accident that paralyzed me from my waist down. I'm still recovering now and got a bug to finish my Air Dynamics 355 coupe after its sat for 2 years now.

    I was hoping to get pics of other's builds all in one thread here. I'm interested in learning where to cut the front clip for the fenders, bumper, and my OEM headlight buckets.

    Also I'd like to see pics of the door shortening procedure.

    Thanks in advance for the help, and I've missed you guys.

    Welcome back Bobby, Glad to hear that you are recovering from your accident!!

    If I remember correctly, both fenders will just bolt onto the stock fender locations on the feiro. You will have to remove the steel front bumper and then your bumper / hood hinge bracket will bolt right on. The cutting comes into play with the hood and headlights. I have the nose bolted on my car but havent done anything more to the front then that.

    The doors are a differnt story... You will need to cut 2" off the bottom of the door, just make sure the glass is up or preferably removed before you cut. You will need to cut the rear verticle track and the front guide as well. I even went as far as making a new door jam to align better with the rear air dams.

    To give you a quick over view what I am doing, I opted to use an OEM ferrari fuel tank behind the rear seats and a corvette C5 suspension. This meant basically cutting off the entire rear of the car and starting over. Here is the link to my build diary whih will either help or really confuse you! ha ha

    The door section starts on page 2 . I can post photos on here as well but I need to find them again... Let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them.

    Glad to have you back!

    I was looking for you a couple of weeks ago. Just curious on what you'd been up too. Sorry to hear about your accident, glad to hear you're up and about. Hope your rehab goes well and of course, good luck with the build.

    So, are you still going with that custom Dave Held rear suspension and engine setup??


    take care...
