Thanks very much, im looking forward to doing this build...jerry the prev owner did tons of work already and the car was supposed to be close match up/duplication of jdinners diablo all the way down to the suspension and V12 engine. Im surprised the car was for sale for so long time because it includes everything to finish the car except the windshield, i mean everything and all for $10k?? im taking a road trip to see jerry for the fist time leaving tomorow cause its been too long and getting kinda weird, i will stop by to see Rob in ariz. along the way and check on my car and i will post pics if your interested to see how far robs gotten with my aventador (the one in your pics).  :)

It's worth giving your own build a shot! Sounds like you have a good start and there's plenty of info from forum members to help you along the remaining build process.

I bought the car build project from rob back in july i have been paying every month since. I bought the chassis from fastbusa bcause it was too good of a deal to pass up. After researching for a few months i thot id give it a try to do my own build. It will be fun and challenging.

Why are you having a fiero built if you bought a Naerc chassis from fastbusa?

lol, i guess thats their jobs. (telling us we're idiots.) If it had a corvette v8 swap then I can understand that. I thought it was just for a fiero stretched. Good luck, I have never dealt with Rob, so I don't have no opinion of him. Hopefully everything works out for you.

I was pretty green and eager when i started this, im fairly well educated now, i graduated with honors from the school of hard knocks...the reason the price was $8000 was because it has the V8 conversion already done w/corvette engine, robs been fair and upfront with me to this point, sometimes i get concerned but i think its the nature of this kind of business. i have to have 100% trust and stay positive, kinda hard when i have my wife letting me know on a daily basis that im an idiot, But hey...its all good

Why would someone pay $8000 for a fiero that has just been cut in half and stretched? If it has held suspension new bushings brakes etc. I could halfway understand. If anyone needs a fiero stretched let me know I could save you a few dollars and it will be alot stronger than the way that one in the pic is done. I would never use the rear half or the car like that. The area where the extension slides into the frame is a major weak point. I cut all of the original frame out and replace it with tubing. The way that car looks is just scary to me. Anyway, I guess thats the cheapest quickest way to do it...

I just looked for my video he posted on youtube of my chassis called "randys build diary" wich clearly shows that chassis you see in the videos on this stream, and its now deleted, dont know why.  that was a chassis that i paid $8k for back in july. the video you see there is my car. im sure its just some confusion, i will call rob tomorow to clear this up.

Hi guys, umm i think thats my chassis that Rob is building for me.. Rob told me the car in the video was mine. I guess i better ask him.. search randy's build diary on his youtube channel. you can see my chassis there weeks before the body's arrived.

This will probably be the first running USA aventador replica
Besides z and m with their gto based kits
