Archie,

Do you have any pictures of the modifications to the right strut tower - in order to fit the LS3? Looking for an empty engine bay shot focused on the right strut tower after modifications have been made. Thanks

Wow, I thought nobody would ever say that to me. Thank You very much.

For an example of how bad my pictures are.......I've had people complain that the pictures on my web site were too fuzzy & they couldn't make copise of my parts becuase of that.

I just bought this camera, it's a Nikon Coolpix L100.

Those aren't flushmounts in the typicall "Fiero" sense of the term. They're not some cheap bucket with a plastic cover.

They are NSX-R headlights formed & fitted right down into the bumper & hood.

You can read about it starting here http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F...3/HTML/000047-7.html

You're welcome.
Well I guess since they couldn't copy your parts, I'd consider that a mixed blessing!

I really like it though. That camera was a good investment; the picture looks like something a DSLR camera would've captured (I'm a Canon fanboy).
A really nice picture!

Why do you ask?

The only modification we do to the right side strut tower is removing the old Dog Bone mount to make clearance for the oil filler on the valve cover.

I don't have a empty engine compartment shot of that but you can see it from the top. Note that the Coil Cover is not on in this picture.

We also turn the intake manifold around to put the T.B. above the transmission. Otherwise the T.B. would interfere heavily with the strut tower.

Thanks... I asked because I have been looking into my next project. Back in 2004 I had a 3800 swap performed by Loyde. That car has since been sold and I have picked up another fiero to build. The LS3 and other LS motors are of great interest to me as I am a GM tech and can get great deals on crate motors. I was looking for pictures because the v8s I have seen around locally all have the pulleys extremely close to the strut, so close in fact that they had to go to coilovers just to avoid having the pulleys hit the strut.

Hmmmm, I've put coilovers on Fieros several times but never because anything on the engine interfered with the stock suspension.

On the LS engines, there is a notch on inside of the right side frame rail to clear the larger LSx H.B.P. but no mods to the strut tower.

Keep in mind that once I sell a kit, I lose all control about how exactly it's put together. Some individual builders don't follow my instructions completely or decide that they're going to assemble it a little differently than I instruct them to do. But I can't think of a situation where coilovers would be required for clearance.

Hope that helps

Not much I just had Archie give it that great multi-colored paint job.

New windows all around
new Archie rockers
new hood with Warber hood vents
new fiberglass A,B pillers and headliner
coil-overs in the rear
Rear deck lid spoiler
Repair-replace any body panels that needed work
600HP turbo lt1 with 6 speed................not really just checking if you were reading the list.
anything else that Archie and crew felt it needed to bring it up to today's standard.

Mostly an update & a refurb.... a lot of the stuff on a Chop Top has evolved over the years.

We put in the Fiberglass ChopTop interior "A" & "B" pillar trim to replace the modified plastic pc.s that we used to use.

We removed the old IRM rocker panels & put on a set of ours. That eliminates the over sized round moldings of the IRM pcs. in favor of the ability to use the stock moldings with our panels.

We replaced the front fenders mainly because the mounting of the old rockers required modifications to the stock front fenders that the new rockers can't work with. The old rockers had mounting studs on the back side in the areas where the moldings were. So when we switched back to out rockers (that use the stock moldings) it was easier to use new fenders that is would have been to return the Blue front fenders to stock condition.

We put one of our Fiberglass headliners in it & covered it with new headliner material

You'll remember that this was the 1st car with the Warber Scoop in the hood. This is the car that it was developed on. It was originally fabricated from scratch. We now make the Warber Scoops from a mold we made. So we put a new hood on the car with a new Warbe Scoop.

We replaced the rear clip because it was cheaper to replace it then rework the old rear clip. Also we wanted to eliminate the "dip", that was in the 1st few ChopTops, right behind the sunroof.

We made new 1/4 windows for it. They're not installed right now because Dave is going to take the car to be painted before installing the windows.

We replaced the 3 pc. rear window with a new one pc. window.

We re-did the small triangles (behind the mirrors) mostly because those have improved over the years & this was a re-furb so we updated them too.

Remembering that the GBCT was originally built as a one of a kind, we also rewelded the top back on because our methods of doing the top was improved when we built the 2nd Chop Top.

We replaced the triangle trim pcs. inside the 1/4 windows because we now them out of a fiberglass mold now days.

Some people will like this & some won't, but we updated the decklid area by installing one of our rear spoilers & removed the wing.

We put on a set of Chuck's brake caliper covers.

We put rear adjustable coil-overs so that we can bring down the rear end of the car if we want.

I think that's about it.

Archie

edit to add......... looks like Dave also answered this question while I was typing this up.

It's like a brotherhood here. You me & Dave are the only ones that have owned the GBCT, so it's fitting that we both answered your question.

Also needed to add that this is the 1st car that had the glass Chop Top windows put in.

Archie

I hope so.

I'm pretty sure he has plans to keep it Blue.

He did have these caliper covers made for it, So I think he's keeping it Blue.

Right you are.....I should have though of that!

Are you working on any other secret "personal" projects....like the Stinger, Pff Roadster, V8 Solstice???

What are you driving these days?


Also, what did you do with the original Warber hood parts? Is it hanging on the wall somewhere?

I have a customer who is swapping a 3800sc & a 6 speed into his '88 Olds Trofeo.

A week or so ago, he dropped off his engine & transmission so we could design & build an Intermediate shaft mount for him.

So now we have the parts for the 6 speed mounted to the 3800sc.

He has some parts from another application to take care of the oil filter location.

Here's some before & after pics.

HI all

HEY!! He'll love the extra pwr in his OLDS!!.... I drove an 88 Trofeo into the ground, my first nice car actually.. Had 60,000 on the clock, and drove that sucker till the computer went out... Those are some nice looking cars, and heck mine was pretty quick, can't imagine what 80 or more hp's are gonna deliver, lol......

Hello Archie
Got a question for ya ..... I noticed the GBCT got a set of Kahines style corvette tail lights. Can you tell me what you do with the old fastback tail lights? I've been searching for a good L/H tail light for almost a year now.
