A little more mock-up with a grill ( modified fi355 ), and , although not necessary, I trimmed a crx turn signal to make it fit the smaller hole just to see how it'll fit. Also fitted the left belt moulding. Still more shaping & smoothing to do, but getting closer to the end stages.

Edit: Going with Nissan Maxima turn signals. The fog lights are 03-04 Ford Expedition

Comparing the CRX light (top) to the Civic which is slightly longer. The 90-91 Civic light would make for a cleaner look because the front screws would not be visible as on the CRX. Both use a rubber weather gasket/seal.



The 94-95 Accord light is slightly longer than the Civic and has a bonded seal...no gasket. I'm not sure if the length will create a clearance issue behind the fiberglass.

I'm all for hiding the one screw if the other will be hidden, it's sort of tacky otherwise, along with the border of the signal present on one side but not the other. I was thinking about that from your mock up pics above.
I'm still thinking I may try to lower the top edge of the mounting hole some and use the smoked thirdgen Camaro turn signals, I personally would rather do without fog lights because they add weight. Though, I might be able to fit the turn signals in the bottom and use a white LED strip for running lights just above. That way the hole won't have to be modified (the Camaro signals look like they will fit nicely, they're just a bit shorter), and it'll look pretty cool.

Or the LED strip on the bottom, somewhat reminiscent of this:



Anyway, I'm just thinking out loud, maybe giving others ideas if they want to do something different.

Before final sanding a design review with silver vinyl wrap was done on one side to better see how the contours & lines are shaping up. This helps to spot areas that need fixing. The vinyl is applied directly over the bondo with a heat gun. When finished with the review it'll all be pealed off.

I really need to stop reading this thread! That looks too good and it is giving me bad ideas. I love the stock Fiero parts and I have built my car around updating and improving on the car while still keeping it a fiero. This blows me away though. I cannot afford this!

Keep up the good work, I hope to be able to meet the man with such amazing skills some time when I am in the area!

Can we please get a sideshot, not at an angle, but directly from the side showing how it flows with the hood curvature?

Umm, he is. Go back and read the thread.


Now that I caught my breath again...

The shiny finish brought that thing to life!
It is, by far, the best nose I have ever seen on a Fiero, custom or otherwise.

I quoted the initial group of guys US$495 +s&h, but not sure what the quote will be from here on out. The fiberglass distributor has increased their prices and I still have to find a local fiberglass shop to do the work for me since I am literally sick of doing fiberglass. Please stay tuned. No website as of yet.

Yeah I must say Amida, it's coming up even better than I was expecting. You'll surely be able to sell those babies like hotcakes, they're utterly gorgeous!

Keep up the good work sir, keen to see how it looks as a complete.

Rob -- quick fabrication question for you --

How do you remove the right amount of foam to account for the fiberglass and still keep the contour of the part? I'm working on something and am using 2 part expanding foam to get things to the shape I want..........now ready to start fiberglassing. I know I need to remove some of the foam and replace it with 'glass........but how do you remove enough foam and make sure all of the contours/shapes are still there?

thx!

i say make it exactly how you want it. Glass over it thick. Split glass in half or quarters and glass on separations that can be bolted together... That's now your mold... Glass on the inside and pull parts.

(simplified version, you do need a mold release of sorts and i recommend a gel coat.)

Thanks..........not really an option for what I'm working on. Without going into details, that would be wayyyyyy more effort than is needed. All of the foam would have to be taken down below the surface of the surrounding body work, then bondo applied and worked/shaped, then molds taken, then parts pulled, then old areas cut out and new parts from mold glassed in and finished....way more work than necessary.
