FACTORY INTRODUCTION1-1 We will have you look the production process of Diablo (at the time of 1994).
This is a jig to cross four fenders made by aluminum all around to the chassis the chassis which was crossed politely by square sectional steel pipe.
Roof of steel made which is welded from the beginning to the chassis.
Aluminum body is easy to transform in comparison with steel and a cost is Expensive, besides, technology is necessary for welding and processing, but It is adopted because of lightweight. At first Diablo of one 1 begins to be made from this jig.

FACTORY INTRODUCTION1-2 Steel doors are incorporated in the chassis fixed fenders.
Different from large quantity production cars, there is affinity with chassis Of one 1 even if doors incorporated so check elaborately gaps delicately and a part which doors hit. This process is in a part depending on the craftsman skill of mastery skills, locate a door and instructions are done where sharpen and where beat.
In the same way FRP made front hood, engine hood, side skirt are composed temporary, and a body is unified.

FACTORY INTRODUCTION1-3 Beat and sharpen body according to the instruction. A red arm is a vacuum machine which breathe in sharpen refuse not to stick to a body and not to be into the human body.
There are FRP made engine hood and side skirt in light green color in the back and side of a body. For the last these are incorporated and finished on beautiful body without difference in grade and distortion. Several craftsmen take full day to finish one car.
