Another update. I haven’t made much progress but the rear bumper is cast.

I've been around Fieros a LONG time, but can't recall ever seeing a front end even remotely like that... keep up the great work!


Heck... I bought my first Fiero new in 85. I have never seen that body. Ever.

The front clip is officially fit. I have a little work to do at the front door gap to fit my liking but everything else is looking great and ready for primer.

I finished up attaching all the mounts on the passenger door skin, fiberglass the rear clip to one complete piece, and cast the ds door skin today. Very productive day today

Please tell me you have plans to eventually sell kits. I wanted to purchase an IMSA kit this year, but Tedd isn't making parts anymore, and I didn't have the funds to buy the entire business from Doug to get the molds.

At this point I am really undecided. I really won’t be able to tell anyone that until I get this one done completely. I am keeping track of hours and materials and I can tell you there is a reason most of the kits cost 5k or over. I am progressing rather quickly since I have been working from home since March. I have to have to car in primer by our October fall cruise to the Arkansas dragon.

I did make some progress today as well. Cast the Passenger rocker and glassed the passenger quarter to the clip.

Most of the body has some potential, but that rear bumper just doesn't do it for me. Looks like it sticks out a few inches past stock and looks a little out of place. Might be an area worth reworking.

Yep, that rear bumper is definitely on my list. I have figured a way to shorten it a bit. It also needs something else like a diffuser or something a little bit lower. I’m still working out the details but there will be some reworking done here.

Got some work done this weekend working on some finish work before primer and shortening up the rear bumper. I took about 2 1/2 inches out of the length of it and got it glasses back in. I still need to glass the underside but that will come when I remove the clip for paint.







I also have been working on a couple designs for paint and will be posting those when I get them finished.

Here are my 2 concepts. They are just rough drafts but good enough to get the idea




I need comments and opinions on the paint
Thank you
