Hey guys,

Im just starting my build, Getting ready to stretch the fiero, but I would like to hear from anyone who has bought a mercy-1 from carkitinc, what the wheelbase needs to be exactly. They say roughly 10.5" stretch, but I need to know exact. I will be doing a lot of chassis, engine and trans work before I order up a body, and I want the wheels to line up PERFECTLY when I do get one. Nothing worse than having the rear tire too close to the front or rear of the wheel well. Thanks for the replys!

I've been told adding exactly 10.5 inches to the fiero wheel base makes it a perfect fit Smile

I assume you didnt buy the body yet. Why dont you buy the body and measure it yourself. WHat kind of engine/tranny are you going to use? Are you going with fiero engine/tranny or you getting another engine/tranny? Everything is so unique in this cars. Get all the parts first then cut/weld. I went through that myself and it will save you headache of doing things twice. Just a thought.

Im using the bmw v12 with audi 016 trans, I will be working on the chassis for probably a year before I even need a body, so there is no poing spending money on it just so I can measure it, then try to find some place to store it and hope it stays straight while I work on the chassis. There is a method to my madness. It is a stretched fiero that will have a wide track suspension, corvette brakes etc, so there is much to do, a body is not important at this point.

It's not imprtant except that you need to know the wheelbase required for the specific body that you use.
Do all of the bodies from a given manufacturer come out the same?
I don't know. I think it's a crap shoot.
Keeping the body straight and stable is part of building the car.
