The mounting

As you can see, not much of the Fiero front bumber is removed vs. the C6 flipper. Only (3) mounting points where needed: along the side, front, the rear-----which was upper portion of the metal compartment.

I borrowed one of the seats from the Redux and drove out to Huntington Beach for comparisons. The Cobra seat felt great and I liked the style but, after thinking about it for several weeks,....I think I'll pass. If the Redux isn't chop'd I think I'd buy them but IMO I don't think I'll have any room for comfort in a choptop using them.

Hi all

Hey Madcurl, the "eyelids" that cover the celica lamp, can you get them in red carbon fiber? I've seen the red ones in the pics on pg. 10, and I am pretty sure I've seen Carbon Fiber ones too......

edit to add pic and a question...

PIC, and what are these eyelids called, anyone know?

IMHO the Fiero Seat is already one of the most comfortable seats ever made. I wish it the seat tracks could have the rocking feature like on the f-body, but other than that, the seats are fine.

They also are made in Carbon fiber for the year Celica headlamps, but are stick-ons. Any idiot can come along and peel off yo stuff and restick them onto his car. As for the name...I forgot. They maybe called, "eyelids?"

I looked at the Redux last week and the Redux was in a deep winter sleep.

Bump, cause "good threads should never die."

Geezs, time surely does fly.

Bright lites: Testing an old idea.

The slant angle appears to be similar to the notch back and using the Mad-Arch bumper with some tweaking and it just might work



Plant those bright lites here, hmm?

Thanks for the compliment. The Redux is on "hold" until #020 is completed.



I'm currently creating "new" parking space for the Redux.

Thanks Tony for bumping the thread. Funny how someone else too likes the G35 taillamps, but I think they'll look better on a Fiero vs. a lambo replica.

Desired Goal; Celica headlamps and G35 tail lamps.

To this day it still boggles my mind that no vendor took Curly up on his bid several years ago to have these hood and decklid vents molded, and reproduced for sale.








Simply one of the baddest mods out there !
