Super work. Am envious of that lovely windscreen and edging (I still can't seem to find the right stuff).

Just checking out a 320mm wheel now, advertised on ebay, using a 23" monitor, increasing to actual size, and using this paper template to check:

I used a universal 245mm MOMO on the 360, looks and feels great, but IMHO a 330/335 would better still. I've tried various sized wheels by printing image to scale and superimposing the Thrustmaster centre, to check if the spokes line up (you should do this before buying the wheel). Not found a 320 sized wheel that lines up, but would be good if you could find one. I fancy a black suede momo with yellow stitching now. You should be able to keep the paddleshift, and get the start button and manettino to work (I did, except the manettino, but know someone who did that too), see here:



I've done this mod twice, on the 355 replica originally back in 2009 (using Momo EVO [not too keen on the chrome bits on that wheel ended up spraying them black], as here:



and on the 360 I have now, as follows:



Oh, and be sure to keep the thrusrmaster F430 pedals if you have them, I've fitted those chromed cast pedals to my 360 they look and feel great (and work well)

Could be that. don't know where the PAS fluid reserviour is, however my steering felt stiff when I unplugged the speedo interface (in the passenger footwell on RHD cars), so do check the electrical connections too

Hey John, let me know when you do yours, I need to get better screen rubber for mine and will join you when you go to Woolies, probably take my car there (I've had sampled from their bins, but without me having the car there, I didn't get it right).

I've had a practice on a random screen from my local scrappy, and the corners are easy to do, using a template to cut around each side (a coke can in this case), and then crushing the glass after jiggling it first with a pair of pliers and then cutting the laminate off with a stanley blade.
I'll be doing this to my build and getting some screen rubber/trim from Woolies, which is just up the road from me.
The screen at the bottom is not advisable to cut as this is where the scuttle bonds too apparently.

Here's an extract from Kitcar mag summer special 2009 about the kit, looks very much like your car actually:

It's good, I miss mine (I did the 3L camry V6 conversion), was a great car on the MR2. I wasnt keen on the wide panel on front of the bonnet, or the extra scoopy bit at the top of the boot lid, but overall was fine. Liked the wide rear arches. Later BAD bodykits are supposed to me more accurate to the 355, however I find the bit in front of the rear arch looks odd on those, so its a matter of own pref. The GRP was fine on mine. Some pics of the old car

This is the Fiero Factory MR3SS kit. Originally for the Fiero, but adapted to fit the MR2. I had one of these. Google Fiero Factory MR3SS

Steve Briddon, Roy Morris and Terry Sands founded in 1990, the company in Birmingham in the county of West Midlands . They began in 1991 with the production of automobiles and kits . The brand name was Fiero Factory . Later, the company moved to Tardebigge in Worcestershire . On April 8, 2014, the company was dissolved. The first model Belaro Berlinetta , a replica of the Ferrari Testarossa , came from the USA and was only imported. [2]

The Fierossa was the first own model. It was also similar to the Testarossa. The base was as in so many models of the company, the Pontiac Fiero . From 1991 to 2003 created about 85 copies. [2]

The Monza 308 , which resembled the Ferrari 308 , brought it to about 135 buyers at the same time. [2]

The F 282 was available from 1995 on. He was similar to the Ferrari F 355 . From this model created about 400 copies. [2]

The Venom also appeared in 1995 and was similar to the Dodge Viper . Originally, Fiero Factory imported this Chevrolet Corvette- based model from the USA. But later they developed a standalone version based on the Ford Granada . Venom Sports Cars took over production in 2003. [2]

The MR 3 SS visually corresponded to the F 282 , but was based on the Toyota MR 2 . He found from 1998 about 400 buyers

Thought I would share a couple of photo's of the fuel system. I have isolated the ferrari intank high pressure fuel pump and pressure regulator. They run @ 65 PSI far to high when feeding the holley carb I will be running when the car is first running. I have installed in the tanks fuel pumps from a 7 litre Buick Riviera feeding a Holley fuel pressure regulator set @ 4 PSI.

this is a epic build, great to follow. Are you in the UK? would be great to see this coming together and compare notes (nb, I don't work for Ferrari or their connected companies).
