I've lurked enough in this thread...

As per usual Amida, your workmanship is epic. The Fi512 nose is coming along splendidly, I really like it. It's the type of nose that will fit with the relatively stock body style, given the edges and shapes present. Should look stellar once you have them closer to production-ready. Keep up the good work sir

Urethane foam was applied to the lower edge for shaping into an integrated 1" chin spoiler/splitter, which, on the original 512tr, appears to be a separate piece attached to the chin. Somehow I accidentally whacked a piece of gelcoat off the upper corner...oops!

Indeed, it will be a very nice looking piece when finished. The 512tr styling compliments the Fiero very well. Thanks.

When you get out of college & start making some real money you'll be buying a much nicer car.

Rob do I see on your Fiero a drawing and cutting for a more pronounced wheel well fairing? Also wanted to let you know I'll be sending a few more bucks your way in the middle of the month.

Not necessarily. There are some who have nice daily drivers, and the Fiero's are their toys to mod.

Looking good!

The OP is the only one who gets an E-mail when there's a reply, but you can click the star at the right side of the front page in GFC thread list. It will show as having a new reply on your "dash board" which is available on the left side when your logged in. I too wish there was an E-mail that went out to all when there was a reply, rather than having to search to see if there was any new post made.

Amida - love the look of the new nose. Cant wait to see the final.

I don't need to take anymore deposits at this point. I'd like to finish the design work first & take care of the initial group of guys before taking any more orders.

Thanks,

Positioning of the raw right front section before setting with fiberglass. Tape, stir sticks & hot glue is all that is holding it together before final bonding. Both left & right side sections were discarded & replaced with completely new sides made from scratch. The donor 512tr nose is requiring a lot of tweeking to make it fit right. Sometimes I think it may have been faster to design the whole thing from scratch.

Is it just horrible that I get excited when I see that Amida has bumped this thread? I doubt I'll be able to afford something this nice for a few years, but I still can't wait to see a finished product on someone's car! Great work sir!

That's sure going to be a great front end when you are done! Very nice work. It's also very interesting to see how you go about reconstructing it. Great thread, a + for you.

Various templates are created from the driver side to correcty position the passenger side & to maintain symmetry.



The use of splints/sutures helps to align edges together.

Reshaping the light pocket to improve the fit for the Ford Expedition foglight. Since an exact turn signal doesn't exist the closest match that I've found are the Nissan Maxima lights. They have the correct curve and mounting tab locations. They're larger than the pocket so they will have to be mounted from the rear. The excess portion will be hidden behind the fiberglass.

You can also be creative & use round/oval/projector lights of your choice along with an LED turn signal strip. Many late model cars are using these within a trapezoid pocket.

The upper valance panel is set. No other changes will be made other than it'll be cast as one whole bumper. In the photo the upper ledge of the nose section was reworked to fill-in the 1/8" gap that was normally between the two sections of the Fi355 nose. This increased/steepened the surface angle by approx. 2 degrees compared to the Fi355.

Found these LED turn signal strips on Ebay. One is straight & comes amber LEDs with either amber/clear lens, the other is a flexible strip that has both white LEDs for driving and amber LEDs for signaling. Not sure if I'll be using these for this project however.

Templates are used everywhere to keep everything inline. All sharp edges will be rounded after everything is shaped & lines set.

This 512tr kitcar donor nose is proving to be more of a problem than a solution. There are symmetry issues all over this donor. I just discovered that the main intake is 3/32" taller on the right side. I had to use the cutting wheel to section off the lip to reposition it correctly. It's as if the original designer of this kitcar nose didn't bother to use any calipers/measuring instruments to double check his work. Oh well...that's how it goes i guess.
