Yes. They will be available as you see it in the first pic. Fiberglass stock front with head light buckets. All the other mods being done are my own tweeks to make it unique to my car.

Having finally found gainful fulltime employment with an Armored Truck Co., I have been working 12-15 hour days and have not had time to work on the car. This is our busy season at Fiero Fiberglass so any free time I have had has been spent filling orders.

I have accumulated some more stuff though... I now have a bottle of gas for the welder, welding helmet, gloves and a welders hammer. I now officially have everything I need to do the chop.

Thank you.

All cuts were made and some spot welding done just to keep things linded up and in place. I will probably be completing the welding this coming weekend.

Hey Jim, I finally finished my prototypes of the headlight rings they fit within the bucket perfect and can be used with a 3 inch projector. the holes in it can be used for led amber turn lights or for halo ring effect. If anyone is interested in having a set I can make them for around 60 bucks a piece, they take about 6 hours a piece to machine from a 6 inch chunk of aluminum round stock so that's why they cost so much but then again they will outlast the rest of the car. they also come with mounting holes on the backside for a 10-32 screw.

Looks like we are neck and neck with progress on the front ends. Did you get your lights sorted out? I am still figuring out how to hold mone all together but, today I think while bored at work I had a breakthrough with mounting my lights. I think the projectors will not be mounted in the bucket at all but rather hard mounted to the car chassi then I can pull the front bumper off at will if I ever need to clean out under the light lenses. Guess I could update my thread to show the beginnings of the mounting.

Not much to really report. I have been gathering up some parts and materials. Picked up a NOS Turn Signal Arm with Cruise and Delayed wiper, NOS Door Actuators, NOS Power Door Lock Switches, Pliogrip Panel Bond and dispenser gun, SMC Resin, Body paint (color to be revealed later), a special "Stencil" from Paul at Fiero Sails (to be revealed hopefully this weekend) and a Gentex self dimming mirror with temp and compass.

I have been keeping a spread sheet to keep track of all money spent. So far I have spent $11,810.82

By my estimates, I will spend another $13K to complete this build.

Keep in mind that all money spent is just on parts and materials and I'm doing all the work so there is nothing added for labor.

I'm starting to get a bit more than irritated with trying to get this stencil from Paul at Fiero Sails.

On 7/15/13, I emailed Paul for a price for a stencil I needed made. He replied back in less than an hour telling me the price. I responded back on 7/16/13 asking him to send me a paypal invoice. I sent him an email on 7/20/13 as he had yet to respond or send a paypal invoice. On 8/4/13 I sent him another email cause I had still yet to receive a reply or invoice. He finally responded back and apologized that he had been on vacation and had completely forgot about my pending order. He sent me the invoice and I paid the invoice on 8/4/13. He emailed me on the 5th to tell me it had been shipped. I thought, Cool I can get this done by the weekend. WRONG! It still has not arrived and I emailed Paul to ask if he had purchased delivery confirmation. I got an auto response saying that he is closed till the 19th!

I mailed my rent check on the 5th also. The check made it from FL. to IL., deposited into my landlords account and has cleared my bank yet this daum stencil still has not made it here. A month trying to get this thing. I wish I had the file so I could have just had it made local and have been done with it a month ago.

Grrrrrrrrr.

The stencil still has not showed up!. Thanks to a couple members here, I was able to obtain the file I needed and I took it to a local shop and they made it for me. For some reason I could not get the stencil to stick to the glass. With all this frustration I decided to do this old school. I printed the file on my printer, covered the glass with contact paper, transferred the design via carbon paper, and cut it all out by hand with an exacto knife. Cover with Etching Paste and rinse. 2 1/2 hours from start to finish and I end up with this.

Bought a new house back in Nov. Car is nestled in the garage which is loaded with stuff I still need to put away. I hope to get moving on the body mods sometime this summer.
