I am new to this whole build thing and was wondering if anyone had any detailed pictures with measurements for the side supports for the roadster body. I guess if you are wondering what I am talking about, it is the tube supports that are welded to the fiero chassis where the doors are. I have seen this on a lot of replicas but just haven't found any with the demensions. If anyone can help that would be great. If you have other specs for the dash and front end supports that would be awsome as well. Thank you to anyone that can help out.

I would gather your referring to the supports that go under the threshold as you enter the car. I simply came out with angle bar straight from the side of the Fiero chassis, angle bar straight up on the front half of the entry way and round rod on an angle in the rear and flat bar across the top of them directly under the threshold. I have pictures if you give me your email address. Not only does this support the entry way but it also gives you connecting points to support the bottom of your side rockers. (there's no budging the welds; i could stand on the pieces coming off the chassis and bounce up and down; and once you add the rest you could have two people stand on it and bounce) Let me know if you want a pic of how i did mine.
