Looks like a ride for the girl on 6 feet under. I like custom cars too, but the body-hauler look just escapes me. So, the idea here is, to take sleak looking (kinda sleak anyway) sports car and turn it into a body-hauler, and the point is? Oh wait, I think I get it, you want it to look like the meanest, fastest hearse ever!
hi bubba im jay in toronto. i tow for caa and abrams. i have an 88 fiero. i have a set of 86 vette rear calipers and rotors. i have a set of 90 l1e iroc front calipers. what year vette rotors do i use for my 88? same rotors front and back? do i use the same cutom bracket as the 87 fiero? dont care about the emergency brake. do you live in toronto? do you have i guy i can go to to make the brackets and centric rings? my number is 905 838 5072. you can check out my car stuff at my websight.
I have always thought of doing things different.What has always stopped me is other people telling me it was impossable or dumb or impractable or ugly.I have ALWAYS let that stop me. After reading every one of these posts on this project, I realize what a complete waste of a life its been NOT doing things my way. Such a pity. Thanks for the awakening. Great Project!
Bubba, This project is coming along very nicely. I'd give you another + if I could. Got a few more questions on the brakes. The front rotors for an 88 Corvette are a "Hat" style rotor (no wheel bearings in the rotor) correct? For them to fit, you have to cut the disc area off the old Fiero rotors. Do you have a picture of these cut? Also do you or anyone else know of a good place to get the caliper brackets, or have a GM part # for them?
hey Bubbajoe, anychance you could post the CADD drawings for the rear brackets? I kinda like your idea of two calipers, replaceing the E-break set up with a caliper seems like a better way to go, I hate the GM style that fails so easily on the Fiero.
Are you going to add weight to the front. I was thinking with the rads, engine, trans, ect.... that it might make it difficult for stearing. also it will also turn a lot wider than original. love the idea though.
We need to find someone on the forum who is willing to make these brackets (front and rear) for us. I have some of the parts to preform the swap but hae no way to get the brackets and such made.
Well, if it's OK with Bubba, I'm sure my brother would be more than happy to make them. He has a full machine shop and all the skills. I don't want to step on Bubba's toes though. I'll have to price the steel, and find out what he would charge. If anyone is interested, LMK. (Not trying to hijack your thread)
Shop_rat, if bubbajoe is ok with it, I'm definitely up for a set. Front and rear brackets, and the ring for the front brakes. I'm going to start looking around for new disks and calipers, so that'll be all I need. Unless someone wants to do the leg work to get everything sourced to sell the whole kit.
