I will be working on it this Friday if all goes as planned. I hope to make some progress on the doors and rear quarters. I'll post up my progress if I get to it


I agree with the other dude but I also agree with you - no big spoilers, but it needs something. The way your clip is shaped, it's very reminiscent of the PPG cars - so possibly just a wee deck extension like the PPGs have would do the trick. Look forward to more progress

Something similar to the PPG cars rear deck was what I was thinking as well. I like smooth, and that's how my car will be.

I've been working on the raised beltline reverse chop http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/077410.html getting the quarter panels glassed to match the doors. I can't believe what a difference the reverse chop has on the looks of the car. It makes the 3 inch chop look even more radical without making it look like a clown car. To me it just makes everything flow nicer together.

Also on another note I changed my headlight arrangement again. They're still in the signal area, but are completely different. I found some flushmount composite lights to fit in that area. I just finished mounting them. I still have a bit of work to do to the cover but so far they look great. I'll get some pics up soon

Sorry if I missed it, but what kind of car did the headlight setup come from? Keep up the good work- looks awesome. It's easy to dream up ideas like this and to tear a car apart starting a project, but it is another thing to actually follow through with it when you hit those more challenging points. Hats off to ya!!!

The headlights in the previous pics are from an early 90's grand prix, but I have something completely different mounted up now. When I post up some pics of the new ones I'll let you know what they're from

edited to add-- I glassed in the roof seam to make it a single piece [yes I know I can't take off the rear clip without cutting it. I have a saw--how often do you have to take off a rear clip anyways?]. Also I glassed in the quarters to match the new height of the reverse chop doors today. I have a little work to do smoothing them out but it looks great. Pics are comming

Ok here are some progress pics.







How do you like it? LOL! here are some pics with the cover off.....
.....





















and now for the headlights, the front bumper is just a mockup piece as it's all cut up















That's it for now. What do you think? Do you know what the headlights are from? Thanks!

I switched over the headlights last week. Their install was actually much simpler than the other setup i had on there. I was able to use the factory Saturn bracket. It has onlt 2 mount points but is very solid. If it's good enough to avoid headlight shake on a factory Saturn it should be good enough for a custom Fiero install

What is the minimum headlight height in your state? by the look of it these are rather low and will not be legal if the law exists.

Thanks, I wish I had the time to work on it more. I'll be working on the nose/headlights all next week. They're just about how I want them. The nose on the car in the pics was just a cut up practice piece, I have a much nicer cleaner cut compete nose on the car now. I still have some finish work to do to it but it's getting there. I also have the plastic honeycomb clearanced to fit around the lights now. The headlights are probably not at a legal height but I have MANY cop friends up here. I even asked one of them what the legal height was and he said he didn't know they're was a minimum height so I think I can get away with it up here. It's my toy car and not someting I'll use as a daily driver so I'll risk it.

Right now my dilema is the reverse chop door panels, I have to figure those out. My buddy Rob [jetsnvettes2000] up here is getting me motivated so hopefully I'll have some good progress this year. I have done a bit but haven't posted any pics of late. I'll have to get off my butt[and off this forum a bit, I've been wasting too much time here], and post some new pics

I am looking into using that sebring windshield on my chop. Does that glass need to be cut down to fit the fiero frame, or do I only need a new lower tray at the windshield base[along with the cowl/wiper mods]?

You do not have to cut the windshield. The top corners fit the Fiero but the top middle will need filler and the bottom sides will need to be filled. It is a lot of work but it makes a difference. Do you have pictures of the doors would like to see.

Here are some new pics. I have the headlights where I want them. I still have to play around with the cover, but they're all mounted up solid and straight.






Here are the pics of my cable actuated rear decklid release. I used the handle and cable assy for the front Fiero decklid on the rear latch. It bolts up to the latch like it's factory. I ran the cable through the drivers side support rib. I drilled a hole near the hinge for the cable to enter the rib, and another hole inside the sealed area of the trunk for the cable to exit the rib so the trunk is weather tight. I may change the position of the release handle. Right now the handle is on the rear bulkhead behind the drivers seat.







Mike here are the pictures of the reverse chop doors you asked for. The extended top half of the door panels are my point of consternation right now as making large smooth fiberglass panels is not my strong suit.






Here are the pictures of the structure. I only raised the outer dew wipe, the inner wipe is in it's original position. The windows go up and down perfectly fine in this arrangement. I will modify the inner door panels to cover the area exposed by the raised dew wipes/door panels

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.




That's it for now. LOT'S more to go

What do you all think of this front spoiler fitted to my car? I will be making a splitter to fit to the bottom. I was thinking I would be modifiying this spoiler but after this mockup I may leave it as it is. Here are some pics. Let me know what you think

I really like the deck lid release cable mod you did! Was that your own idea or did you pick that up from the forum? Can that be done with the electric "popper"? Can you do a separate "how to" thread for it?

Thanks Mike, now I have to get it done. I've been watching your build progress, it looks great. I'm doing the Sebring windshield mod, I like how it looks on your project, and I think it goes well on my car with mostly stockish Fiero front hood. I'll be gettting some pics up soon.

While I won't say for sure I'm the first to do this cable release mod, I did just kind of figure it out by myself. If it was/is up here on the forum I haven't seen it.

The reason I did this mod was because I filled in the key lock on the rear decklid. I had the electric solenoid but knew if my battery went dead I wouldn't be able to get to the engine compartment. I happened to have a spare front deck cable laying around and found out that it bolted right up to and functioned perfectly on the rear latch. After figuring that out it was just a matter of routing the cable and mounting the release handle. The electric solenoid can't be used with the cable attached as they would interfere with each other.

I did create a thread on this using the same pics, here is a link. http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/118475.html There isn't much to this, it's a fairly easy mod
