Hi all! New to the forum but long time fan. I couldn't find a newb section sooo Im making a newb post! I have a 85 GT 4spd, little over 102k that Ive taken up as an alternative daily to keep miles down on a lease. As with most of you, it has become an addiction and I cant seem to leave it alone. I do prefer the fastback but notchies have a certain place for me, as I also have a notchback foxbody(gasp). All that aside, I have looked through the forum and found 1.. 1 single post about black top/roof cars and no one seems to paint the whole thing. I took a que from some vert cars and extended the black 2 inches past the final curve of the sail to meet the rear bonnet line. Ive got nothing but compliments from local Fiero owners so I figured, why not share with Pennocks!?? As a first post no less!

Welcome dude! I'm interesting to see your black roof. Where are the pics of the sexy little car?? I like the fastback as well as the notches when it comes to Fieros. When it comes to a foxbody though, I cannot STAND the notchback. They look great with the hatch, but retarded with the notch. The only way I would ever own a notch, it would have to be a decommissioned patrol unit.

The post should have a picture. Thanks for the welcome!




I kept the inboard part matte/satin with the outboard gloss. Helps it blend with the vents and factory body.

And the fox, prepping for ls swap

Welcome to PFF!

I think you've done a great job with that roof. May not be everyone's cup of tea but that doesn't matter. Are you going to repaint the nose?

Looks great on your car--but I got a fastback and I thought it looked odd so I only did my front half (and half of that is T-Top)

Actually, I already did. Its in a pearl with silver flake so it looks a little darker. Experiments abound on this car!

Looks fine, and its different. This is whats typically done on Fieros, its my Ferrari kit. Yours looks good on a coupe, but dont know where you would cut it off on a GT.

Don't want to detract from Ncndio's post, but for those wondering about doing the roof deal on a fastback......



That's my son's 86GT. He did that paint about 5 years ago.

I believe BMWGuru did his GT that way also, but haven't looked up any pics.

Had this one readily available, so went ahead and put it up.

Ncndio, your ride looks great! Welcome to the forum!!
HAGO!

That's an interesting look. I'd have to see it in person.

Thank you for your service.

Bit of a clearer idea. It was difficult to find middle that blended but wasnt blatant. Still work to be done. I dont like the razor-like lines the tape left, figure another coat of clear will smooth it out a bit

Yay headliner sag hahaha


That tangello fastback is nice! Those sidevents look like 1 offs, not seen those before.

I painted the front half of the roof and windscreen pillars black on my fastback.

That dont look as bad as I thought on the fastback roof. You could also do a vinyl top to make it look like a convertible,

I would have cut it off even with the back of the grills. The little block of paint looks a bit odd. Still a different idea that looks pretty good.

Thanks! Yeah I'm a little wierd like that. The curve of the sails continues on past the grills so I continued the black to match the curve, and in turn to match the angle from the "window". Lots of measuring. Best part is, if I dont like it, it peels off :O
Thanks for the comments!

Cool roof! I will be painting the roof panel on my (future white) notchie black, but just doing the roof panel itself.

Also nice fox! I also have an 85 vert that I love just as much as the Fieros. Very fun cars
