    Found this thread; you'll want to verify this info though (i thought it was a 12 inch stretch)

    Here's an article about the Fiero stretch:

    I wrote this up a while back:

    There's a lot of different approaches to stretching the Fiero, some do the cradle first, then the chassis. Some take the drivetrain out, some leave it in, etc. As long as you take careful measurements, including measurements from the driver's to passenger's side diagonals, you'll do fine. Be sure to measure it again at all points after each tack weld. Intimidating job, but not all that difficult.

    For the record, if you bought a Mercy 2 from quick cash, you have a Triangle G G28 (not to be confused with the Mercy 1 which is a G24). You'll see references to G28 quite a bit here.

    I'd like to see pics of your kit - I've considered buying from Quick Cash as well...

    The MR2 is going to be a lot more challenging to stretch because it's a unibody, where the Fiero is more similar to a frame with body panels attached. You might research Boxster stretch; I've seen pics of that being done before, and it's probably a similar approach.
