Do someone have pictures of a GT nose installed on a Formula ? (side view)

This is a modification I would like to do because I prefere the GT nose, but I've never seen any and I wondering what will be the side look of the car with a GT nose without the aero side.

It would look the same as an SE or an 85 gt except the rear bumper would be different and it wouldnt have ground effects.

Along the same lines of the original question.

Exactly what parts need to be taken from the GT to fit the Formula. Are the fenders and bumper structure the same?

The bumper cover, the gray structural piece (honeycomb), the airdam + center and side supports. The fenders and everything are the same on all cars except there slightly different on 84s i think.

I don't have one but I have seen it and it doesn't look right to me. Maybe if you paint the lower part black to match the rest.

Thank you. I am planning on doing this very soon.

I have this one I collected from somewhere at one point. I know this is a STRETCHED wheelbase car, but it should give you a good idea how the aero nose looks on a car without the ground effects...

Do you think this one may be one of those ?

The description says "1988 Fiero SE 4 Cylinders".

But for me the nose is not original

I was thinking of going with an Aero nose as well for my 84. Now I know what it'll look like, save the stretched wheelbase.

Regarding the white car above, there was not an "SE" model in 1988. The last SE model was sold during the1987 model year. This car is definitely one that's had parts added on/changed. Wait, I take that back- MAYBE the "Formula" model for '88 is listed as an SE, but I'm not sure on that.

Along the same lines. Does anyone have a picture of a Fiero/Formula without the side plastic rocker moulding? Mine is coming loose and I have not decided if I should repair it or remove it totally. I am curious to see what is under there/how noticable it is without it. Less weight = more fun.

Oooh, I don't like the nose on that green one. I think the stock looks so much better. It doesn't match the rest of the car. I think the ground effects of the GT detracted from the look of the whole thing.

That's true with a the green car, but with monochrome car it might look better. See the white 88
