  • Jntramey's Amazing AD355 berlinetta build

    Well, "amazing" in that I haven't actually got "building" yet! ;D
    I'll post some pics and stuff of what I've got for parts for my build, and the base Fiero I'll be using, how's that?
    Oh, and don't expect lightning fast progress as I am semi-retired (that's tired and a half) and money is pretty tight with kids in college and all.

      "Semi retired or Semi-retarded?"

      BOTH!

      Semi retired = Retired (20+years) Navy vet with disabilities (I'm NOT handicapped but rated at 50% for now) that does some work part time for Ferrari parts $

      Semi-retarded = for daring to start this build on a shoestring budget and only a 10x20 shelter for workspace.

        Spoken like a true enthusiast. Good luck with the build.

              The donor: 87 GT notchback with a V6 and a Munci 4 speed (I didn't know there was such a thing till I looked up the VIN on the web)
              As an aside, the panels on this car are in great shape with a really nice DEEP dark purple paint job. ( I thought it was black when I bought it on Ebay) They are obviously ALL coming off including the GT stuff and mirror, wheels, etc. SO, if anybody wants them, make me an offer or they are going someplace never to be heard or seen again by humankind. It might be nice if you have a Fiero that you want GT stuff for, or if you are planning on robbing a bank and need to change the entire color of your car fast and don't want it to look freshly painted!

                Rear (notice how even when it hasn't been washed in a year, the spoiler is shiny and very reflective!)

                        Great to see you have a build page. All good things take so much time and effort, I commend your desire to drive one of the nicest body styles I think Ferrari made. Good luck, don't hesitate to contact people on here (including myself) when you need parts or questions. Eric

                              My work in progress dash panel.
                              I used Fiat spider bezels for the two big gauges and the little oil and temp gauges are OEM FIAT written in Italian
                              I still have to fabricate the dash light pieces out of tinted plexiglass and attach them and wire them.
                              The gauges themselves are my Fiero gauges with a photoshopped face over the gauge face (maintains the factory harness and plugs)
                              The tach had to be rotated in the bezel about 45 degrees clockwise so the face plate and actual tach would agree, but it still plugs up good. I had to cut a little elongated slot at the top of the speedo bezel to be able to read the odometer. You cant see it unless you get in the floorboard and look up at the dash, which works for me. The trip odometer button is kinda obvious, but once my dash light pieces are in place it won't be that noticeable due to all the other stuff distracting the eye.
