I have been looking and looking at interiors due to i do not have one and would be the perfect time to do something nice so i am asking what non stock interior have you put in how long did it take you and how much did it cost you
well i messed with the rear body and hung the doors and put the front end i am going to use and i think it is going to look good and it gives me a wide body for just $300 . i have 245 on the rear but i need to go allot wider it is looking like about 13 inch wide tire and the right wheels and i am playing with the idea of a rear wing but if i use a fiero wing i will need to widen it out so i will need another wing to cut a section out and grafted into the other wing

did a bit of reshaping the fastback i cut the hight and that changed the angle of it and i will use the stock 1/4 window sail panel or what ever you want to call it i am thinking of reshaping the top of the rear fender to the way i laid out the tape
I have come to the conclusion that i need to pay someone to do the paint and finish body work i can get the rear section bonded on and i can even get the body work close or maybe even right but i don't have the talent or facility's to paint the car so i am saving up to have this painted and i will try to get the body work as best as i can
well i am cutting the rear bumper off the kit due to it is installed wrong it is higher on one end from the other and is twisted the rear passenger side so the top is running at a angle instead of level like the driver side
i ended up cutting along this bumper seem and by doing so it re leaved it so the top of the fender is now level like on the other side now i just need to take it all off and mark things and sand off the paint from the fiero body then bond it into place with the 3M adhesive
Kinda looking like two different things front to back right now, IMHO. The kit is all sharp angles and striped horizontal lines. The nose and hood are all soft, rounded kidney shapes. I think it would help to fill in the beltline molding in the front fenders, and carry the crease of the rear and doors to the front. Its a single line, and slopes downward more than the beltline. Maybe some of the front bumper could be sharpened up and/or have some of the ribs added? Looks like you need the aero trim on the bottom of the front fender too.
As for paint, I'd say get it halfway decent, throw some primer on it, and run it for a while. That's what I did with my Fiero. I'm still changing my mind about customizations.
yes i need areo trim on the bottom of the front fenders and i think i should go with smooth on the front part of the fenders and carry the upper front door line into the rear of the front fender at belt line just like you suggest
this is blending in better than i thought it would but it looks like they got the deck lid part on a bit crooked as i have measured from the rear window and one side is 49 to the rear edge and the other is about 49 1/2
there the guided pulley repaired the problem of the belt wanting to walk off the supercharger pulley now it revs's nice and fast and i don't think i am getting belt slip with the new belt wrap system i made
Mark !!! your doing a GREAT job up there. Body kit and all. Some drastic changes from the last time I saw it. Im gonna have to make a point to come up and see ya some time. Hopefully we'll have both our cars up for next year. Here is a pic of the t top car in the yard ......
today i did a check on how my body work looks and i am done blending on the rear roof pillars out sides as i used black paint to show any high or low spots and it looks good now to make it be the best it can be when i get the rest of the body work done i will use high build primer surfacer then block sand it all depending on how perfect you want it is how many times you you prime it and sand it some do it once and some do multiple prime and block sanding

well i have been busy so i haven't worked on the car but i am planing on working on it tomorrow and re-hanging the rear bumper . I seem to find things i just don't like the way who ever put this kit together as it is a cheap kit body but the folks who put it on a Fiero the first time just did a bad job i will take some pictures of the trunk lid to show what i am talking about
thought i would just say i am still plugging along on the body work and taking my time as the season is over so i have no need to hurry as i am sure it will be ready by next spring and i have some house projects i need to get done but like i said i thought i would check in and let every one know thanks
