I already want to go back to Daytona.
we were going to stay till monday but we decided to come back sunday.
that was ok because it gave me monday to play with my car a little.
I did a bit more body work to the right side of the car. I want to get that side done then I will turn the car around so I can work on the other side.
here are some pic's from yesterday. body work and my new seats and head liner.

A great improvement over the stock Fiero seats. Any clearance issues using these seats in a choptop (near the roof line?) I know with my Corvette seats, I can't fold the seat due to interference.

No, I test fit the passanger side and it clears just fine it is the same size as the stock Fiero seats but it sits a little lower
in the car. I will have to make custom mounts for them because if I use the stock Fiero slides I would have to shim the seat up
to make the slides work. I am going to get a set of slides from Summit and tweak them to fit so I can keep the seat as low as I can.

thanks, but you are only seeing one side, it still has a long way to go but it will get there.
at this moment I am just trying to get the right side done so I can turn the car around to get to the drivers side better.
I got the back glass back from temper and I am going to install it this weekend. when I do I will pull off the top of the car and paint the chassis
as well as finish the underside of the body so that when it all goes back together it will be for the last time.
my plan is to jamb out the car and paint the under side of the body so I can do the outside of the car without taking it appart again.

yea I reworked it and the sill a little to get it to fit a little tighter.
last night I worked on the car for a while. I took the body off so I could install the back glass and while I have it off I also did some sound dead paint on the outside chassis
as well as the wheel wells to cut down road noise.
since the body is off I am going to finish the underside of each part before I put them back on the car.
yesterday the painter gave me a sample of the lambo paint I am using for the car and I tried to get a pic of it but it is a little hard to do on a paint stick.





one steep back to take 3 forward? I hope!

Question; how did you remove the rear clip? Did you remove the rear clip by yourself or did you have help/hoist device? I need to remove #015 rear clip and I'd like to do my work w/o aid for the neighbors (too noisy).

Curly, the back is a little awkward by myself but not heavy at all.
I have never had any help with my car yet.
it is more of a balance from one side to get it tilted back to where you can grab it from the back.

YOU CAN DOOO IT!

Tonight I worked on the car for a little while I was able to get the fastback section finished and painted on the underside.
I just did it in black to seal it.
I also worked on my new fiberglass headliner because of the choptop I had to section a little out of it and glass it back together. I know I can't leave anything
stock
I also worked on the underside of the hood to start soothing it out.
nothing exciting tonight just bodywork so no pic's yet.

PS. Clay it was nice to meet you and your fam. today for lunch.

What he said. I had my wife help me once. I didn't feel like throwing my back out. But most of the time I lift it off myself.

Now that's a Kodak moment. Next time get your wife to take a picture (if you happen to remove the rear clip again).

I had to work saturday so sunday after I finished some yard work I was able to get back to work on the car.
I am trying to not get burned out on body work so I do a little of that and I spent most of the time yesterday working on fitting the interior
panels making brackets for the dash and fitting the headliner. because of the chop top I have to modify the trim and it is a lot of work just to do that.
I have to finish the B piller piece for the drivers side as well as fit the door panel. with that I will still have a few things to do inside but it is going well
for now. no pic's today nothing of much interest.

I don't pop into these long build threads all too often, but I noticed that you are using some Recaro seats. I just wanted to show you the mounting solution I used on my Recaro's and adapting the stock sliders to them. I found this to be the lowest setup that I could come up with.

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/070693.html

Good choice on the seats. They are quite similar to mine.

Thanks for the info. I have looked at using the Fiero sliders for mine as well but the problem with mine is the chop top
when I test fit the seats with the Fiero sliders I hit my head on the roof so I am not sure how I can mount them lower yet.
I have looked at redoing the sliders to get them as low as I can. if I cant get them low enough I may just solid mount them where I want them.
but I would prefer to have them move.
thanks again for the help.

Last night I cleaned up the garage, it was getting bad I could not find anything and just walking threw it was an adventure.
I found all my tools and moved the car to the other side so I could work on the drivers side of the car now.
here are some pic's of the car outside

the seats are just sitting in the car so I could move it







someone wanted pics of the front of the car so here you go.
it still has a long way to go yet.

If I may speak from a "critique" point of view; IMHO I think the original bulging lower body line (the line right below the fog lamps going east to west) needs to be removed. IMO it's competing with the newer body line (in other words you now have two chins). The bulging bump was intended to highlight and a point to where the F355 nose ended (granted I could be wrong and you might want to review a few pics of a Ferarri race car using some type of add-on to the fascia).

Either way, if you cut and remove the lower add-on spoiler and move the part upward and closer to the bulging line it might blend-in better and thus allowing for a continued flow to the side rocker and rear bumper. Thus by doing this, the extra (centered) lower vent opening in voided, but you could add the intended curve in this area (similar to Car-Lo's).

That said, what the heck I know. It's freaking 3am!

Curly, I know what you are talking about on the front but I am not done yet. I want to keep the spoiler where it is but with a few more tweaks.
the spoiler is going to be a bolt on part not part of the nose it just looks like it is at this point because I needed to get the shaping done before I can take it off and finish it. also I am going to paint it Black instead of green for 2 reasons one to breakup the front bulk and for the other it sits low enough that I know it will get chips and things so I want to be able to repair it without having to match the green everytime. with the contrast I think it will look fine and not look like 2 chins.
it still is a work in progress and you never know I might change my mind later but for now that is the plan. thanks for the feedback as always

I am going to work on the car this weekend so I will post some new pic's monday of what I did to it.

Daredevil, I bought the seats in Daytona at the swapmeet so I am not sure what car they came out of but if I had to guess I would say a Mustang by the other parts he was selling.
all Ford Mustang parts from the late 80's

This weekend I worked on the car all weekend and feal like I got nothing done.
I finished all the interior pieces and went to work on the rear bumper and spent 2 days on it and it still has a long way to go.
first I fitted the tail lights to the openings to get them exact then I worked on the center vent trying to get the shape I want.
then I reinstalled it on the car because I needed to re do the corners to fit them to the wheels better I made them too wide the first time
so I had to cut them appart move them it and re glass them. now it is a lot of grinding and shaping to get it close enough to use bondo for the finish.
my whole garage was full of dust by the time I was done sunday night and it looked like nothing got done.
but sometimes it goes that way. no pic's because nothing interesting to see when you are doing nothing but grinding.
it will look great once it is done and I will post pic's then.
I hate body work

That's why they call it bodywork instead of bodyfun.

Today I sopke to the new owner of HT motorsports he has just taken over the shop in the last 6 months.
he is working on making his products better and he is doing it full time not part time like the last owner.
and the best news he bought a Fiero of his own to test and improve all of his products.
I just ordered a set of coilovers for my car so I can adjust the ride hight and I will be getting other things from him in the near future
as money permits.

I also talked to a friend that has a body shop about finishing some of the parts for primer to help get me rolling sooner.

nothing else to report as of yet, but I am still moving forward
