Ok so this is my first time EVER working with plastic, so i kept it VERY simple... dont expect any thing ..cool lol but i figured id post these pics up and start a small noobish build thread, so basically... i have alot of free time on my hands (well i work 40+hrs week) but there is free time anyway i had a spare side scoop laying around... so im doing some slight modifications to it.. no i dont care if anyone steals my idea or what ever, i have about 3 weeks of work into it already.. a little here and there, and im still looking for a paint that will do me justice..acually paint and fit is all im lacking now + i may add a "scoop" conector between the back of the scoop and the acual hole in the body to make for a cleaner transistion of air flow, remember i dont claim any power increses from this.. im just bored and trying out my plastic skills for the first time... heres my work thus far.... ok now to explane some of the pics.. , ok the first few (hopefully youve seen the inside of a stock fiero store scoop... has 2, 90* angles at the back, i removed these, then in later pics you can see where i rounded off all of the other 90*s, then i made a piece to replace the fiero pieve out of silicone white polymer plexi glass, i sanded it to perfection then clear coated it, then i stenciled on the logo that took me FOREVER to make, now i need to fill in the stencil with proper paint.. wanting to use black... any sugestions... i tried testors modle paint first... as you can see on a test piece..it didnt work FAIL! .. so anyway i test fitted my piece to show you how it will look... of corse the inside is smoother than a babys ass and theres no angles (other than the screw notch...cant do nothin bout that).. im open to ANY and ALL sugestions and comments!

Looks cool, I never understood why they had that vent in the back that ruined the ram air.

yeah that vent is usless, looks i guess, other than that its a wind trapper, i havent figured out a good way to take care of that yet, yeah went paint shopping today.. still didnt find anything.. cant get it done till i get paint!! ahhh paint is all thats left!!

after i get this one done i will have another spare fiero store side scoop to modify if i want.... let me know what you want, draw some pics, what do you want it to say? i only have one.. its hard work but if somone likes my work... i can do one more custom for your fiero, $$ depends on work/hours/suplies/shipping/quility after its done... whatch think? i told my self that i wouldent do that.. but ehh i have one spare... gota do something with it right?
