As far as I can tell you cut and stretch it here?


Here's a link to my Aventador build thread.  Built on an '88 Fiero.  My stretch is documented about halfway down the first page.  Hopefully that shows you everything you need to do.

Boy I love those wheels, I wish I would have bought one of those sets when they were available.

It's great when you get parts in, it means you can get stuff done.

thanks !! I had the rims before I even had a car :) lol.  just got the rubber last month

Got the 3800 swap brackets for the trans and engine in the mail today from FeiroRog over at Pennocks.  Also bought the brackets to relocate the alternator to the power steering pump location from him as well.

I can see you are already making it much better,  what a difference a little paint does.  What are your plans for body color and wheels?

Thanks Pedro, here is a picture of the wheels on the car. I will be upgrading to 13" rotors and wide track all the way around.   I have a few colors in mind but will figure that out later...much later :)

   While you're under there I  would get rid of that compression fitting on the brake line.

Thanks, Brakes will be completely redone.... yes a REDO!

the outside of the stretch has steel plate ...not quite welded all the way.  Plan is to finish the out side stretch then weld steel plate on the inside.  The inside of the stretch has spot welding on one side but no welding on the driver side.
