Not to rush perfection, but any updates? Do you have a rough ETA for the production version?

------------------

'10 Camaro LT/RS, 312hp V6 6-speed
'88 Fiero GT - coming soon! - Project MIDTRBO

The rest of my cars are for sale
There's no replacement for turbo placement

Sorry for the delay guys, I've been working on too many concurrent jobs which have all fallen behind schedule. Lately I've been trying to catchup on some interior work. Once that is finished & out off the way I can focus on finishing the designwork on the new nose, which should be done this fall season. I'd like to get everything shipped out in the winter so that y'all can have your cars ready for the Spring show season.

Thanks for the update. It's no problem with me either, I just need to start thinking about the order I'm going to do things (bodywork and paint) since my Fiero is almost back in my hands. Though, I am like a kid waiting for Christmas again.

With great sacrifice comes great reward. With the care and dedication you have put into your projects, I wouldn't mind it taking another 6 months. I am sure it will be worth the wait!

Just finished the upholstery on a set of Fi355 door panels. These are for a stock, non-rebody, Fiero. Switching back to the Fi512 nose for a few days, then back to start another Fi355 dash...wish I had more time in a day.

Your 355 interiors are hands down the nicest interiors I've ever seen in just about any car, let alone Fieros. I just stare in awe every time I see your full interior installed. I wish I could pony up for one, but the HP takes the priority right now.
That being said, I'm still highly anticipating the nose-job that my Fiero be getting.

Keep up the good work.

Yep, here's some process shots of transfering measurements & profiles over to the passenger side using templates. I needed a hard edge on the lower side for taking measurements so I made mirror image templates out of 3/16" masonite and attached it to the bottom. A long straight edge & square was used to set height & side angles.





A profile gauge was used on the driver side to create templates to help shape the passenger side. This won't be CAD/CAM perfect but close enough for eyeballing the handywork.

After setting the lower flange to the correct height a couple layers of glass was applied to the backside to lock it all in place.



Two part urethane foam mix was added for material buildup.




Then shaved & carved to just below surface level for the next step...bondo. Templates created from the driver side will be used to help shape the surface profile.

The lower design line is set using blue colored bondo to make the line more visible & to provide a contrasting color against the surrounding pink bondo filled areas when shaping/sanding. You know when to stop sanding when the blue begins to show up through the pink.

Templates really come in handy when shaping a mirror image into the opposite side.

A nice color combo.


I agree
I really like white American cars (and red Italian cars)
Hmm...How did I end up with a black Fiero?

Rob,

Did you finalize the light choice? From what I have read in the thread, we are looking at Ford Explorer fogs and Honda CRX turn signals correct?

Getting closer to finishing up the shaping stage with yet another template...this one for the brake cooling duct. Once all the lines are set, then all the edges will be rounded. Will be moving on to the fine sanding/smoothing stage shortly.

Yes, Ford explorer fog lights for sure. Since I can not find a turnsignal that is narrow/short enough for the space, I suppose you can use any light you think would fit behind the fiberglass, or fabricate your own turnsignals to fit the space. The CRX lights are the best that I've found so far, but still need to be mounted from behind.

While searching for lighting alternatives, I thought I'd try mocking up a Maxima turnsignal, used for the Fi355 nose, and I found that it is the best choice. It has a similar face curvature, and unlike the crx lights, no visible screw holes & no slanted surface. It's also cheap to purchase as well. The upper 1/3 of the light will be hidden behind the panel. I am ordering a few Honda/Acura lights as well to see how they'll fit.

Can someone identify the turn signals on this PPG Fiero? The short height drew my attention. For the Fi512 ideal size is 8.5" x 1 3/8".

Definitely not thirdgen Camaro lights (1982-1992 is thirdgen, 1993-2002 is fourthgen)
