You know Amida i have to admit im not a fan of this bumper, But your your craftmanship is second to none. Had I known about your 355 front bumber before I went with the one I have on my car yours would be in its place. if i ever damage my current bumber to the point of no repair you can expect a call from me for your 355 front end. We also might do business on your center console one of these days when i have some throw around cash.

Continuing with the mockup, I first pulled the prototype Fi355 nose to make way for the new project.


.
.
Half 512tr donor positioned on chassis with new valance panel to get a visual on what needs to be done. The top flange isn't flat all the way across, it has a slight up curve which creates an increased gap between the panels. Will have to straighten that out. Will also have to round a couple corners in the light pocket, and the grill opening needs to have a straighter edge on the sides.

That's nice. I've gpt a 355 nose presently but would trash it in a heartbeat for one of these. Drop me a line when you get production up and running.

Here the passenger side is getting stitched back together with some butterfly splints. The use of various templates helps to keep the two sides symmetrical. It sort of reminds me of a Frankenstein movie.

The 512tr donor is considerably longer than the Fiero nose.

How to get a relatively straighter nose with sharper corners to fit a pointed & rounded Fiero Profile?......you slice & dice it into submission.

That is looking like it is really going to be sharp when finished.

Great job amida in showing how much work is involved in getting things to come out as awesome as you always make them.

I don't think many can scoff at the price considering what is needed to pull these off.

Just amazing.

That is just awesome. I can see a hundred thousand ways I could screw up that 512 nose beyond repair.
You're definitely one of the most talented, hard working, and honest Fiero (and kit car parts) vendors that I know of. I'm not sorry to help support you in the least.

Thanks for showing us the progress, it's very neat to watch. I can visualize it all in my head from start to finish (and all the stumbling blocks too), I just couldn't put it into fiberglass so well.

Spacer pads from the upper panel are removed to prepare a flat surface to mate with the nose section. A flat table top was used to check for any deviation in the mating surface.

A spacer was added to fill the void between the two sections. Later on the sections will be permanently bolted & blended together. Here, a rough mockup of the three sections held together with masking tape to see where I need to do a little more slicing, dicing & tweaking. Once the lines are determined I'll secure the pieces together with splints then bond with fiberglass. Afterwards measurements will be transcribed over to the passenger side.

I am REALLY starting to like this more and more, so I took the liberty of "finishing" the other side for you



How soon do you expect to be in production?

Make a second one model, with the middle portion lowered, or expanded downwards to fill in the "void"... Then you'll have a really sharp looking bumper. Or sell me one and I'll make it. lol

Sharpening the edge on the valance panel before joining with the main section.




Three sections joined together. Middle spacer filled in & blended in with nose section. Shaping in progress.
