I came across Fiero Fiberglass' Rear Hips product & think it has some potential to show curves in rear without the expense of wide wheels & tires. Has anyone tried it? There are two pictures from the website on an uncompleted stock GT. If you had it done on a stock GT, please show pictures of your Fiero. Thanks.

Yeah, I've seen this thread the other day. I noticed people use it often for chop top to make it look wider. But I wanted to see how it looks for non-chopped GT. I guess not much difference.

They were originally designed for the choptop on a choptop and have to be modified to fit a regular roof car a bit but nothing to serious I would rate the install a 9 out of 10 difficulty due to the splicing in the rear clip to make it strong. Key is using the right bonding adhesive 8115 3m and the right smc resin for the fiberglass. the ones in the video and build on Johns car I modified a bunch besides the fact especially around the gas door area as the way it was originally designed did not allow you to open the gas cap very well. As matter of fact I just spent the last 2 hours fine tuning that area now that it is painted so it all works right and the popper still operates the way it was from the factory. If I had to do it ever again I would change how the door top is put together and make it not lay on top of the belt line channel but rather cut it flush fit and bond it from behind and redo the belt line area so its more crisp. right now as it is it will look normal but I would like the transition to be deeper a bit with the molding.

jetsnvettes2000, thanks for the info. Yeah, I can see how much work it takes. I've seen your pic of gas cap where there's a gap at the top by the shelve line. Looks like you've done a good job!

that area needed extensive reworking even after paint I just had to modify the inside bits more last night as the gas cap was getting stuck way down in there. Now it seems to be ok tho and the popper is working great too.
