    Help I just bought an unfinshed Ferrari F40 Kit on a Fiero

    Hello to all,
    I found this site listed on Pennocks Fiero Forum. I just picked up an unfinshed (hardly srarted) F40 Kit on a 86 Fiero chassis. It came with real Ferrari badges and some other stuff. Where do I start? Any ideas who made the kit? Is there any information or books? The back "window/engine cover" is broken, it seems to be made of clear plexiglass, with slots cut in it. Where can I get a replacement?
    Any leads on parts or information would be great. The Ferrari stuff came from Kitcaracessories.com Has anyone purchased their interior components?
    Thanks,

    a good source for that as far as i know. also look for testarossa wheels if you want something that looks good on a f40 kit, or something cheaper depending on your budget. i can try to help you as much as i can, i have the owners manual for the f40.
    for taillights, the 308 / 328 will work. opel GT lights will also work i belive, but i would double check that. i'm not sure exactly what you need.

    There is a fully upholstered 328 style interior that may still be available in the Florida area. It is being replaced with a 355 type to match the car.
    E-mail me if you'd like to get a hold of him.

    There is a guy in Bushnell, Florida that builds F40 kits. His name is JR. I think the area code is 352 but don't remember much else. Hope that helps. He makes the rear window as well.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    Can you post some photos of the F-40 kit you're working on?? *we'd like to see what it looks like at this point....Not many people in here are building F-40 replicas so it would be nice to have some photos of something other than a F355 build-up blog...

    Good luck *- *VK

    Amida,

    Have you seen the 328 style interior??* I'm going to be changing the interior in my 308 and may have an interest.

    Thanks
