      The car is coming along so I thought I'd start the thread.

I really like the Lotus Sport Elise.
This images is larger than 100K. Click to view.
The Elise's Chrome Orange made me want a Orange Fiero. (I know this one's Yellow)
My Fiero will have the same dark silver stripes.

It's at the paint shop waiting for me to finish the bumpers and side skirts.





Here's the hood vents

I have the molds made for the front and rear bumpers



Here's pics for the front bumper's plug, made from the top of the fiero bumper and the bottom of a civic's. (somewhat FieRo style)





fourpoint9 (stevenmsimpson@comcast.net) MSG #3, 09-07-2006 09:49 PM
      And here's the rear plug




FieroMontreal (bastien_ja@hotmail.com) MSG #4, 09-07-2006 09:51 PM
      Great Work! I can't wait to see that finished up



fourpoint9 (stevenmsimpson@comcast.net) MSG #5, 09-07-2006 09:53 PM
      And the Side Skirts plugs. Scoop panels and Rockers all one piece.
I still need to make the molds for these but the plugs are almost finished.

      Nicely done. That's pretty cool.

      Some interesting and creative work, very nice, keep it up. I really like that hood vent.

      WOW your car is going to look great! I love the hood vents, 2006 is proving to be a great year for fiero re-do's. I hope all the "New 2006 Fiero's " are ready for a show in 2007.

timwdegner MSG #11, 09-08-2006 10:44 AM
      Wow fourpoint, you've got some great design skills (have seen a couple of your posts in other threads too). The car (looking at the side profile pic) looks really cool. Have you considered at least photoshopping a chop top in?

Now that you have (or are making) molds...I bet you could find some buyers for at least a couple of these items.

I'll agree with the creative skills, but here's where I have to say Whoa. (I bet you could find some buyers for at least a couple of these items.) Please be advised that we're talking about some of the cheapest people driving on this planet. I include myself in this description. If you decide to sell anything, get at least half your money up front before you build the molds. Praise is cheap, molds and parts require an investment.

fourpoint9 (stevenmsimpson@comcast.net) MSG #17, 09-08-2006 08:09 PM
      Thanks for the nice replies.
The hood vents are Aerogear Universal NSX scoops
http://www.aerogear.net/products/Universal-NSX-air-ducts.htm

I have to agree with blackrams it's a lot of work (and cost) making these parts.
I will have molds for each piece and may sell some when my car is complete.
But my focus needs to be on making the first of each so the paint shop can have them.

FieroWannaBe I really like the first nose pic, the one you use for your avatar, looks sweet

I really need to thank XzotikGT who helped me with the rear bumper plug.
opm2000 (Mr. Pantero) gave me some great pointers to make parts release from the molds this weekend.
and my friend Jason who you see in the side skirt photo and here in this one spraying Gelcoat


Here's a pic of my sail panels I got from Paul McKibben

The rear, the side skirts, and the spoiler are all bad ass as well !! Fantastic job.

I know you will definatly sell the nose, and most of other parts as well.

Just a fantastic, impressive job. Congratulations.

      4.9 -

If you were wondering if the rear facia would fit on a GT - there's one here in Graham to try out on!

Looks good as well. When your ready for the possible sale of copies of 'er, please let me know. Shipping would'nt be too difficult.

I'm 1 hour North of you near Burien WA

Did the Polish, Buff, Wax, Spray Mold Release and Gel Coat and first layer of fiber glass in the bumper molds. Should have parts to give the body shop by Friday.


exoticse (exoticse@netzero.com) MSG #26, 09-11-2006 07:34 PM
     
Fourpoint9,

How much ($) would you estimate it cost you in materials to produce these parts ?

If i may ask that is.


fourpoint9 (stevenmsimpson@comcast.net) MSG #27, 09-11-2006 08:31 PM
      Tony,
Too Hard to answer. If you mean the entire costs for the plugs, molds and all the tools and all the supplies, I've spent alot.
If it's just the parts, well, I will need to see how much resin and fiberglass I use.

If you already have a mold, the Supplies needed just to make a part are:
~Resin - is around $110 a 5 gal bucket,
~MEKP Catalyst,
~Fiberglass - Chopped Strand Mat and Woven Fabric - I bought a whole roll of fiberglass mat. which was a fraction of the price then if I bought it by the foot off the store's roll,
~Mold Release Wax,
~PVA mold release, and
~Gel Coat

Check out these websites, I even found one in your area:

http://www.fiberglassflorida.com/

http://www.fiberlay.com/
http://www.fibreglast.com/

I buy my product from fiberlay, because it is in my area, but I like the fibreglast website for how to instructions.
Read Mold Construction
http://www.fibreglast.com/contentpages-Mold+Construction-170.html
and Molding Fiberglass
http://www.fibreglast.com/contentpages-Molding%20Fiberglass-171.html
Once the molds are made the cost of making more parts will not be that bad,- it will take a few days to make each part.
This is my first time making anything out of fiberglass, there are others on this forum that have a lot more experience.
Hope this helps,
-Steve

      Ha ha, Im laughing @ you becasue I just remembered the good time you had with the gel coat/primer. Cant add that into the cost. J/K. But, I hope you havent destroyed the plugs you made the molds off of yet. I think there is a stage 2 that can be grafted to them.

fourpoint9 (stevenmsimpson@comcast.net) MSG #29, 09-12-2006 12:05 AM
      I didn't do any finger painting with the primer and gel coat, but it has been a learning process.
You're going to have to come over and put on the blue gloves and spread some resin.

      I should be making some for sell but it will not be in the near future.
I have to finish the side skirts - plugs, molds and parts.
When I get that done I will have to do my interior - Mr.Mikes Seats and Door panels.
When my car is complete I will have time to make more parts.
I will keep posting my progress.
I have a brother and a friend or two who may want to help, we'll see what happens.

Sorry that's the only picture I took with the bumper on the car.
We took the bumpers to the body shop today and snapped a couple of pics of the wing mounted.




They put the hood on, notice they removed the PONTIAC from the driver's headlight door.




The paint shop is Huddleson's Autocolor World in Seattle WA

Hey Fourpoint9,

Hope you don't mind, but i had Custom2m4, do a little photochop version of what your car might look like chopped. (note he had to use another notchie due to problems with your pic).

At any rate here it is with a liberty or two hehehe.



fourpoint9 (stevenmsimpson@comcast.net) MSG #53, 09-19-2006 10:07 PM
      That's cool thanks. I have wanted a choptop but I decided against it.
I want that extra head room for when I wear a helmet while autocrossing.
We'll have to photochop it again after the paint shop is done.

Yup. I bought a civic chin spoiler (it was ABS plastic), made a mold of it and a fiberglass part and some extra pieces for the extensions and molded it to the nose....that was some work but you already have the right shape to start with.

      No major update yet. I went to the body shop today. The rear bumper has been done and the front is almost finished.
They work on the insurance collision repair cars mostly. They can take their time on my car, I do not depend on it for transportation.

It's not the Lotus color. Looks about the same. It's a custom mix Dupont Paint. Can't wait to get it out in the light.
My side skirts are still plugs I need to make the molds and parts. Time to heat up the Driveway Shelter this week end.

Very, very nice. I really like the new VW plate light. What type of material was used on the bumper to prevent cracking since the bumper if flexable?

Thanks, I was in traffic one day and looked over at a newer bug's rear bumper and saw those plate lights and thought they would be just what I needed.
The bumpers are 100% fiberglass, not very flexable. I wish I could make urethane bumpers.

      I am also quite interested in these front/rear bumpers. Looks even better than the dietmar front/rear and he's got a long list of people waiting 4 months to pay about $400 for each side.

I bet other fiero ownners would buy them as fast as you can make them. I know I'd want the front/rear fascias if you were to make another set, and I'm sure I'm not alone here.

I've been tempted to put an order in with Dietmar, but the tales of months of delays and ill-fitting parts, high prices, and customs delays has scared me off.

am I the only one here?

      Since the front bumper is a 92-95 civic you should get a carbon fiber front under lip, it would look sweet, be one of the very few fieros with carbon fiber on them, and you can get one for like $300. Just my 2 cents. What color are the stripes? They look great

Thanks, A carbon fiber lip would be cool, but the lips sold for the Civic wouldn't work unless I did like FieRo and just used it to make a mold to make one that is longer on the sides.
It would fit the front but not be long enough on the sides.

As for the Silver Color, the paint shop handed me a DuPont book and I picked the color from samples of like 60 different Silvers. Each color only had a part number not a name.

      The Macco on 1st Ave in Burien is very good as far as Maccos go.
I have a friend who has had a few cars painted there.
I once went there to price a cheap paint job for my Chevy Truck.
They said they have painted Fieros before.
They gave me a tour, even showed me a 355 Spider Kit car they had inside which they were about to paint.

Huddleson's Auto Color World is expensive but they do quality work.

You could also try Malo's Auto Body. They were over booked when my car went in.

Macco will be the best price by far, but you get what you pay for.

Did you see Monday Night Football? It's nearly been the rainiest Seattle month ever, now Snow. The Packers brought it with them.
Snowed for the first half Packers did well. Stopped Snowing for the second half, Seahawks came back and won.

My Fuel pump went out in my '96 Suburban. I got the new one installed but still need to put the tank back up and in.
I only had a 1/4 tank gas when it went out. Had to be towed home, Happened before the tow trucks were busy with snow stuck cars.
May need some mid-day sun to warm up things enough to get it back in.

This IMO is one of the best front notchie clips on the forum. Why? It maintains the "Fiero flow" & contain tweaked/angled corners. I think the "venders" need to wake-up and take notice. When regular people began to build items that are not on the market, the "venders" are behind the thinking curve while they're heads are stuck in the sand. People want newly tweaked stuff, not stuff that's been on the market for the last 20 yrs! End-of-rant, hehe.

Can you explain how you did this? And where do you get epoxy like that? I want to make some center caps for my wheels, and possibly steering wheel as well.

I bought a kit (do not remember the company's name) that came with
round labels made for inkjet printers like you can buy here:

www.worldlabel.com

It came with two part epoxy (they have smaller sizes than the link if you call them) like you can buy here:

www.fiberlay.com


You print the labels and then mix the epoxy in the measure/mix cup and pour it onto the labels until it domes up.
I printed enough so that I had lots of practice errors and some that turned out good. Some will get dust from the air or bubbles and will not be good, but some will turn out perfect.
It's easy to pour too much and have it run past the edge.
Best way to do it I found was to pour a little on the label, then work it out to the edges with a paperclip all the way around the circle label. Then pour more in til it domes. (should be worth a plus + if you use this)


.
I put one on my oil fill cap

      Thanks for the info. I will have to try that.

The grills look nice. Much better than the cheap gutter guard stuff. I have some cheap stuff right now, but would really like to find something better. I would keep an eye on the rear fascia. Those exhaust tips don't look double-walled, so you might have a problem with it getting pretty hot.

Overall, I really like the way the car is looking. I just skimmed through this thread again real quick, and it's odd to see a lot of the stuff you're doing. I have a lot of the same ideas. You'll see what I mean when I post about my car. I promise it's not copying (well, I'll have to copy the centercap thing).

      Covered the Sub Box Console. It's not completely finished, the speaker is not screwed in or wired and arm pad is just sitting there. I may attach it with velcro.

I bought a used Audi TT shift boot with ring. It shipped today. It was hard to find one. The dealer wanted over 200 for one. I paid 75 plus shipping

Well, since it's been painted, I've only driven it to the glass shop to get new door glass, and to the muffler shop to get the exhaust tips installed. The guys at Sunnydale Muffler liked it.

It still does not have side skirts (working on them now). My wife followed me in our Suburban on both trips and said most people look at it as it goes by. She's not sure if it's the sound of it or the bright orange color, but heads turn and smiles form.

Monday Icelander came over and helped me bondo and sand on the side skirt plugs. Thanks Icelander! I have some side skirt work pics I should post.
They are starting to look good. Tuesday I re-created my paint booth. This weekend is Easter so I will have family over and it doesn't look like I will get a lot done.

      Ok here's something I have not shared. I had to mount my license plate because Washington is a front plate state.
I've seen Corvettes with removable front plates and thought I'd make one with some kind of quick release. After talking to a friend about it, he suggested using a CB antenna mount


Here it is with the license plate



To remove it, I push in (it's spring loaded) and turn it

Then it pops out

Then I just put the Fiero badge over the female part of the mount in the grill, and it's ready to show

And here it is with a custom Fiero badge I made.


And I do have a plan for the turn signals. They will be mounted in the grill.

      Tomorrow I should have one front and one rear bumper for sale.

I have a company that made them for me and I pick them up tomorrow.

They should go for $400 each plus shipping and handling.

FieroWannaBe can have first dibs on the front one, if he still wants it. He was the first to ask.

They will look like products made by a guy in his driveway so they will need body shop perfection.
They will not have mounting brackets and the holes will not be drilled.

I will post more after I see how they look tomorrow. And if I post photos I will not host them on comcast.

I have a company that made them for me and I pick them up tomorrow.

They should go for $400 each plus shipping and handling.

FieroWannaBe can have first dibs on the front one, if he still wants it. He was the first to ask.

They will look like products made by a guy in his driveway so they will need body shop perfection.
They will not have mounting brackets and the holes will not be drilled.

I will post more after I see how they look tomorrow. And if I post photos I will not host them on comcast.


Congratulations ! Glad to see you got your hard work into production !

On both sides the doors rubbed some and
on the drivers side their was some fitment issues had to be fixed.

So if someone wanted the side skirts they would have to be prepared to deal with those issues.

During the summer (I work outside) it would be possible for me to make a set, perfect them and then make new molds.
But that would a lot of work, time and money. We'll see.

Still all the issue of tweaking those side skirt would be worth it for any Notchback owner.... Most of the work is done and looks at the results.

- Steve do you have molds of the wing?
- Do you plan on offering the complete kit?
--->Front/Rear BUMPER
--->Left/Right SIDE SKIRTS
---> WING
---> HOOD SCOOPS

PFF "hyperv6" hood scoop would also look very good too.

      Wow Steve, looks like it all coming togeather. If you happen to make another run, and get some heads up, I'd love to see about possibly getting a set of the front and rear for my GT.

Deal fell through on our conversation we had about 2 months ago. The guy w/ the stuff kinda fell off the face of the planet, and looks like I will have to start from scratch. Oh well..win some, loose some, and sometimes you run to Seattle to get what you want!

Keep us posted.

The WING is a 92 Z28 like this one on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymot...dZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW
The HOOD SCOOPS are NSX Universal Scoops like these: http://www.itz-usa.com/whol...COOP-SET-p-3212.html
So I wouldn't be making the wing or the hood scoops. I like the hyperV6 hood vent, maybe someday on my next Fiero project.

As for the side skirts, as is (needing tweaking), I would be happy to take my molds to this company so he can make them too.

I just need a PM to confirm some one has real intent to buy and I will pay to have parts made.

Once the parts are made I will need to figure out what it will cost to have the UPS store box and ship to your house

I will then PM to have you send a Money Order. I will not take money for a part that is not already made.

I still need to pick up these 2 bumpers and see how they turned out. I'll post when I return from my hour (each way) trip.


So far:
FRONT BUMPER 1. FieroWannaBe 2. Bridgetown
REAR BUMPER 1. tc7130


Thanks,

      Kinda discouraged about the whole thing.

He raised the price (for any future parts from my molds) so much so that I can not have his company make more.

He would like to make me some perfect molds and produce perfect parts. Very understandable for a professional.
He takes pride in making awesome fiberglass products. To pay him to make new molds would cost around $1800 (bumpers and side skirts).
I do not have that kind of money to invest, especially when I have no idea if I will sell enough to recover the cost.

What I can do is search for another small fiberglass company that will work with the molds that I have. They are very usable, just take some prep (putty in places like in the molding groves).

I also can make parts myself but it is not a side business that I would enjoy, too smelly. It's kinda fun for my car but doing a ton of production would get old quick.

I do have one rear bumper that needs a buyer.

FieroWannaBe is trying to come up with the money for the front bumper but is having a hard time with it. I should give him another week or so. If he can't come up with the money, Bridgetown was the next to say he wanted the front one I have.

Are you referring to all four parts 2-side rockers (lt &rt) and 2-bumpers (front and rear) for $1800 for this guy to make them?

I may buy another notchback. Make another pair of sideskirts.
Fit the side skirts to it. Do the body work on all 4 parts (bumpers and skirts) and make new molds (or pay to have molds made) from perfect parts.

This is not in my near future. Takes way too much time money and labor. I know from what it took to make them the first time.
If it was easy everyone would do it.

The molds I have were the very first things I ever made with fiberglass. They turned out good for a guy working in his driveway.
The current molds made front and rear bumpers that fit fine but needed bodywork to perfect. The side skirts had to be modified to fit. They rubbed under the doors.

If I want to have a shop make parts for me, they want molds that do not need prep work and they want to make perfect parts.
That's the kind of attitude we want them to have. But it makes it so they can not use my less than perfect molds to make me parts to sell for a reasonable price.
I really don't want to spend my summers making parts in my driveway. But I would like to have a shop do it for me, so I need new, perfect molds.

      My brother in law runs a machine shop that makes parts for Boeing. My father in law runs his flow jet which cut out my amp rack. The tail light bracket they cut with a huge stamping machine. I think I still have the drawing I made that they used, PM me if you want a copy



I used a Hotronics PG-3, No Load Flasher For LED Taillights.
http://www.hotrodhotline.co...ch/05hotronicstech2/

Wiring was simple.
Because the notchback tail lights have the brake light shared with the turn signal
I had to cut the grey wire on the brake light switch and run a new wire.
The sequential turn signals have a flasher system built in so it makes them flash a little random because of two flashers, but it looks fine.

      Hey fourpoint,

Have you tried talking to some of the existing Fiero retailers about reproduction of these bumpers, like V8 Archie, or Pisa Fiero? They already do plenty of body kits, maybe contracting them out would be an option.

Also, I'm not sure if the people you made bumpers for backed out or not, but if they did, for either front or back, let me know... I've got funding for both, but I'm mostly in need of a rear bumper.

Finally, I have to be honest my friend, you have created one of the best notchback mods out there. Thank you for doing something for just us non-GT guys.

Nice numbers, what does Lance have done to his speed 3?
I have one and am split on building a Fiero or modding the speed.
I think I would get more fun with a Fiero...the only time I use the speed is when the wife is with me and she doesnt let me have any fun. Only gonna get worse when our daughter is born. Atleast with a Fiero I'd probably be alone most of the time, and just give her the Speed 3.

Looking at his gragh he still could have made more power. Talk about seriously under-rating their car! YIKES

If you've never seen this car in person, then please believe me when I say that those flares would NOT do it justice... As-is, it's currently one of those cars that you just can't help but stare at... Almost like it's seducing you (for lack of a better way to put it...).

Hello Paul, I see in your thread you are keeping busy buying up Fieros to match the fleet you had here.
I miss having a Fiero owning neighbor. Yeah the 3.4DOHC that you sold me (thank you) will go in our (I tell my wife it's her's) '87 Blue coupe.
Trek to Daytona ? You know that would take me a week each way. Might try to make it to a Cali event someday.. Songman invited me to his Coast Run.

Since you already know what your torque curve looks like you could set it at 0% at 3600 RPM and ramp up to 100% at 5200 with a 100 HP shot wet system. Heres a sniper system with a bottle that would match your car http://www.jegs.com/i/NOS/741/07006/10002/-1 Orange Bottle! Now you gotta do it.

      WOW!!! I was sorta getting tired of my notchie untill I seen this thread. I have a new love for my car now. I will be making a close copy this summer I think. HUGE props for the custom work. Did you use a pink foam for the skirts for the mold?

fourpoint9 (stevenmsimpson@comcast.net) MSG #347, 06-01-2009 09:42 PM
      Yeah Owens Corning insulation from Home Depot. But the resin will eat it so you need to cover it with bondo or plaster when making a plug.

Katman81 MSG #348, 06-02-2009 11:17 AM
      So use the foam to make the form and cover it in bondo. Then cover with fiberglass and once fiberglass is set dig out the foam. Does that about cover the basic process?

      Seems like a cool idea. But with that kit, it kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it? You still have to put in the key and turn it to accessory, then press the button to start it. The cool factor is there, but just seems like it'd get annoying. I could have just misinterpreted the ad though...

It's cool but i've been wanting to put this in my car. I do not have the funds but it would be awesome to have. It is a keyless entry and push button start like the newer infiniti's have. I believe they even have it so when you walk up your car unlocks and when you get out of range it locks.

I bought a new style (PK3) ignition lock cylinder with keys on ebay, and it came with the ignition lock cylinder, glove box lock, and one door cylinder, with 2 keys. They're really nice, but took forever to get here, coming from Canada via standard post.

Don't have them installed yet, and the ignition switch I got for it doesn't fit in the Fiero anywhere stock (though with a custom dash, you could add a place for it easily). And the lock cylinder itself won't fit in the stock Fiero location either, as far as I can tell.

      I have used that foam as well, and if I am using it for a form that will be destroyed, I cover it with saran wrap. Also, when I have made up pods and such, I use soft aluminum as a frame, so I can have really solid mounting points.

      cool! well again this is probably one of the best looking fiero's in my opinion you updated the body 15+ years with very little modification in comparison to others great color choice and the body mods you home made were nice and not to "over the top"

      this was one of the first fieros i saw with the 4.9 on youtube. I've been a big fan ever since. It really is a great build

      Thank you for keeping this thread out of the archives.

Spent the summer working on a vacation home we bought in Long Beach WA so I did not work on Fieros at all.

The only time I took it out was for the cruise part of the Rod Run to the End of the World. Lots of fun.

      I'm not planning on doing the Fest or the Picnic but I will be at the Rod Run to the End of the World for sure.
