    355 KIT QUESTIONS!!

    IF I BOUGHT A 355 SPIDER KIT AND IT DID NOT HAVE SEPERATE ROCKERS IF I SEPERATED THEM WOULD I HAVE TO CUT THE DOOR ITSELF OR DOES THAT PART OF THE SKIRT HANG LOWER?

    PICS WOULD BE GREAT TOO....

    If you go that route you'll have to cap-off the exposed under side of the door, and create a new top surface for the rocker, as well as glass together the three rocker pieces on each side. To cut down the work you could also purchase original rockers from Ebay & make them fit.

    No Fiero door cutting is needed but like Amida said earlier, the door skin bottom needs to have a lip (5-6") long to encapsulate the Fiero door and then you need to build up the rockers....See photos below:

    Good luck - VK

    If you cut your rocker panels from the door. It will be necessary to add approximately 1 inch to the lower part of the remaining scoop attached to the door. This is due to the fact the Fiero door is taller than a 355 door. In addition you may find it easier to purchase a set of Rockers from John Watson to use on your build. I think you can use your door without any problems.

    I will post photos of a Watson Door and a Ferrari Door. Note the difference between the door scoop and the rocker scoop.

    I get my photos copied and used many times. I live in Tampa and have never posted on craiglist. If they are on that site as a car for sale, I would question them very carefully.
