Don't get me wrong cause i absolutely love the new nose (for #11 and #15), but for the redux, i like the original nose you crafted. Looks perfect for that particular car.

Like a funeral director ordering new shoes for a client the Redux is dead, but the car will have new shoes and socks thanks to Troyboy.












The Rosso will wrap around the HRE I purchased several years back. LOL.




19x9 HRE (I forgot the name of the wheels, but they don't make them anymore).

Thanks. Dan in FL made the tweaked Fiero bumper for me. I had a simple yet unique idea using the front opening of the Fiero front bumper. I asked Dan to make the mold they make, but using only the mouth opening and had it graphed onto the bumper. The end result is a lower bumper and a opening for air to flow through. The sides too have been lowered to match the center. The openings will be cut out.The Fiero designers appear to have left (us) with a car which we can re-tweak using the same parts. The same holds true for the MadArch kit.

Yeah, thanks Tony for spotting these Racing Harts:



I took a stroll down to Los Angeles area (actually Rowland Heights) to check out a warehouse selling high end Racing Hart wheels. Often times you hear other bumping gums about not being able to find a set of light weight wheels. I think the Redux will sport these four wheels to the crib.





sporting a 4.5" lip.

The brand is licensed and authorized to use the Racing Hart name through Dazz Motorsport. The wheels are 19x9 32mm, and 19x8 32mm and they clear 13" Corvette calipers (I haven't tested if they clear 14").





I've tested the wheels on #011 & #020, but I was mainly concerned about the clearances on #011. I have no plans on using the R.H. for #020, but they do look good as-is on #011.

The R.H. clear #011 10" coil-overs.






Really pushing the limit on the rear.



On a 88 the R.H would no doubt stick out pass the upper lip (that's a good thing if you have the MadArch kit). Either way not a bad deal for pre 88. The guy I purchased the wheels from previously had a wheel shop in the L.A. area and decided to end it. He and his son are selling them inside of a rented warehouse. They had several sets in 5x100 and at one time had 19x11 (I missed that deal).

The drive was only 2-hrs, but the traffic-that's a totally different story and I arrived after the noon rush hour.



On the way down there I spotted on of those wagon wheel cars. I think they call it, "Donks" or something-not my cup of tea.

In Rowland Heights, CA I saw a BMW and I like those side turn signals (not the car), hehe.


Brand new and still in the original boxes. The owner said he only opened the boxes to demonstrate the wheels.


sizes and off-sets.


wheel shower caps






Nice semi rear lip.


9"is wide enough for stock (#011). The R.H. are a three piece that is welding together (similar to Maya wheels) therefore if you bend a rim-you're screwed!




19x9, 25 pounder.

Test:


19x8 front

I finally got around to having the HRE wheel outer lip fixed.




I dropped the front wheel off too. The previous owner totaled out his nice Corvette. The wheels had been sitting on the self for years and nobody wanted them. The total cost for repairing both lips and paint was $500 (centers in pics aren't painted yet). It would've been less if I didn't go with the chrome lip. Eventually, I'll get around to chroming the other side, but for now-what's the rush.




These wheels normally are 6k and up. If you find a set for less than $500 you could retweak them and use on a Corvette or modified Fiero.

19x9.5 fronts and 20x11 rear. The Corvette they were originally on had 285/30/20 rears and I think the front sported 275/30/19, but the Fiero I'll still use the 285's, but maybe 255/30/19 front.

Gone but not forgotten.



Curly no longer posts here but this car is coming along ! The bodyshop is doing some slick work.

Reminds me of a tweeked plazma.
