    AD 355 doors

    Dave.. or anyone else who happens to know this, what are the differences between the Air Dynamics door and the stock 355 door. I know the AD door is 2 inches taller and the door vent was made thinner but what else was modified to fit the fiero? I am trying to decide if it would be better to modify the AD doors I have or buy a lower section and add it to my existing door. I am going for the stock look on the outside and on the door jam as well.

    thanks

    In my build thread the doors on the AD 355 bothered me so I made the vents bigger and showed how I did it, looked a lot better after making them bigger and it made them look more real to me.

    I added a lip to the part from John to tie into the Ferrari lower.

    I also made the doors 2 inches shorter.

    FF355spider is there a link to your build site?

    Dave - are your lower sections removable like on the original? I am thinking about calling John for a price on the lower doors. I noticed that the scoop is different on the oem (inside the doors) then on the AD as well...

    I bonded my doors together. There was no need for them to be removable since I could unbolt the outer door from the Fiero inner door. The lower door scoop on a 348 and 355 Ferrari is used to get into the window regulator and door latch stuff.

    Re: AD 355 doors

    did you have to remove or modify the metal stiffener on the fiero door for the original 355 vent?

    No adjustment to the metal stiffener on the Fiero. I did have to slice a slot in the top of the scoop to clear my door handle bracket. If you mount the door handle differently you will not have to do that step.
