    How similar is a Diablo to a Murci Chassis?

    It looks like I'll be getting a Diablo Roadster half finished (partial trade for my Testarossa). I'm considering selling the body, and using a G28 body instead. Is this plausible, or would it be better just to start from scratch on a stock Fiero?

    Chassis already stretched for the diablo,the Murcie front trunk opening is a different shape , some of the support members are in a different location ,but you can fix or remove them are all the body supports on

    if you are using a G28 body KIT wheelbase will be the same
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    Murci chassis is about 1.5 inches longer.

    The extra lenght is only for the OEM replica kits with full lenght rear fenders ( full size) , the G28 would be the same 10.5" stretch as the diablo

    Correct G28 is same wheelbase as diablo.
