They are more likely halogen bulbs, HID bulbs actually run at much cooler tempratures then standard halogens do, that is part of the reason they last so much longer.

I'd bet the fans are to clear condensation from the inside of the light covers.

It's taken me days but I have read every single page of this thread. Archie, you and your crew do outstanding work. I can't wait to see you finish your GT40. Are you going to be putting an Automatic in it or is your knee not bothering you as much anymore? Can't wait for more updates. I have never been that good at saving money but I would love to have a chop top notch back done at your shop. Incentive for me to start saving...

Hey Archie, you get an indirect mention on Wiki !!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pontiac_Fiero

Currently the Fiero has a cult following of owners and customizers. While all Fiero models are considered to be collectible, the 1988 model year is especially sought after by collectors due to its limited production numbers and vastly improved underpinnings. Because of an abundance of replacement parts available from other General Motors vehicles, there are many upgrades that can be done to improve performance and reliability of the cars. Additionally, a multitude of different General Motors engines have been installed by enthusiasts, from the Quad-4 engine to the Chevrolet small-block V8 to the Cadillac 4.9 L and Northstar V8s. The GM 3800 Supercharged is also a very popular choice, as well as the 3.4 L found in the 1993, 1994, or 1995 Camaro/Firebird. One shop in particular that pioneered and now specializes in V8 installations has even gone so far as to install the famed Z06 Corvette powerplant, the 505 horsepower LS7, into a Fiero. Installation of the 4.9 L V8 or smaller engines is possible with few modifications to the car itself, because Fiero prototypes were tested with a similar small aluminum V8 prior to production.[3] As a result, the engine bay is large enough to accommodate engines of that size.

A large following of owners still exists with many web pages, groups, and clubs devoted to the car, and the basic chassis is commonly used as a kit-car platform from wild custom rebodies to Ferrari F355 replicas. Due to their small size and weight, they are also a popular choice for all-electric conversions.[citation needed

Anybody have any info on these prototypes? Any literature or pics? I don't think I've ever heard of that. Pretty cool shout out to V8-Archie though

Looks like I should update this thread a little bit.

If you've seen the Miura thread lately, you know that we had the car here for a few weeks & it left last week.

We've been working on another ChopTop & I'll post some in process pics later. I don't know what number it is, we'll have to check with Curley because he seems better at keeping the count than I am.

We are at a holding place on that ChopTop right now, so we pulled my GT40 chassis out of storage & have begun the final installation of the body.

I am on a new PC, so let's see if I have PIP configured correctly.

Here are some pics.

Yes there are.

The floor pan, the front & rear frame horns, the rear bulkhead is still there... as is the cowl up to the top of where the heater box mounts. Also the center gas tank location is still stock.

Also all the front & rear suspension mounting points & cradle mounting are still there.

So whats the plan for the engine and trans in your GT40? Going with an auto because of your knee or has it gotten better so you can put a stick in there?

Arch, can you give us a "pan-o-ramic" shot of the new place. For those of us who made the pilgramage to the old shop, we want to see how the new one compares.

Thanks Arch, I know its a pain.

The new shop is smaller with a lot less wasted space than I had in the old one.

So far the new smaller shop has worked out much better than I thought it would when we first started to move into it.

We can't have 6 or 7 different projects going on at the same time like we could in the old building but that's fine. We can have 2 to 3 projects at one time in the new building.

I thought I had taken some pics of the new place but I can't seem to find them right now.

So here's a couple & I'll take some more this week.

We have an interesting project going on in the shop right now.

You may remember ChopTop #24 owned by Chris Lewis (the "T" Shirt guy)

He has put in some 300Z lights into his car more than a year ago. Not long ago he bought a fiberglass front Gt bumper 7 installed it.

A few weeks ago he asked us to relocate the lights as needed & to modify the bumper & hood to build some pockets for the lights to make it look good.

These are the only real "before" pics I have (I know there are already a lot of "before" pics posted somewhere on this Forum).





The lights were a little loose in the car & the aim wasn't all that good. So we moved the lights about 1.5" forward, leveled them out & made up a new mounting system that would keep them solid & allow for removal for paint leter.













We needed to modify the hood to conform with the new locations of the lights. We cut out most of the previous work on the hoos. Then we could replace it with a new fiberglass surface & structure.



For the headlight "bucket" area we formed the initial area with cardboard.....







And we made some cardboard backing plates for the area on the hood that needed replacement.





Notice that the cardboard is covered with some tape that will not stick to the fiberglass layup that will go over the cardboard.

Then we glass it up. After the glass sets up we take the cardboard forms out from the underside.





Next we need to so some sanding on the outside & glass work to finish the inside of the hood.

100% better !

That little bump forward and especially the addition of that little shelf or flat area in front of the lights, makes them look like they belong and not something just added on.

Great job Archie and crew. You guys seem to have this custom headlamp thing down to an art !

Hey Archie,

The work is very well executed and the solution looks nice. I'm curious about what do you and the guys do with regard to the metal cross piece to which the front bumper attaches? It appears though it must be interrupted in order to drop the light tray.

That piece was shortened on the ends with the previous installation of the 300Z lights.

You gotta remember that this is a fiberglass bumper, so the shorter cross piece is enough to hold the rigid fiberglass bumper.

No problem there.

He had that area built up with body filler & the painted fender underneath the filler still had paint on it. So it popped right out of there real easy.

We've since built it up with fiberglass.

Here are todays pics. & you'll see that the fender has been fixed.







We should be shooting some primer on it tomorrow after a little more sanding.

I will say that I see Chris's car about once a week. I got the honor of working on the wiring for his swap and this car will look awesome when completed. Not giving away colors but the paint is here for her.

Hmmm,.. Archie.might it be worth your trouble to pull a mold of that top bumper section around the headlamps so you guys don't have to re-do it everytime someone wants that mod ?

I think you will probably have more interested, once cornersonrails car hits the streets again.

cornersonrails, We've got it in primer.

We still have to mount the lights & front trim pcs.

I'll post pics later this evening.

Give me a call when you can & we'll figure out when is a good time to pick it up.

Hey Archie

Could you please tell me,
what do you use to "paint" the black frame on the back glass on a chop top ?
One of the guys that got your chop top kit is working on his and does not know what to use.
He is not on the computer much and asked me if I could find out
Thanks in advance

PS. good job on the 300 headlamps, they look 100% better.

It called an etching primer. It etches into the glass & bonds to it so that when you glue the window in it will hold it tight.

It usually looks like shoe polish & you can get it from any place that installs windshields.

Allmost all new windshields have a black border around them, that's an etcher primer. It lets the windshield glue hold the windshield for a long time..

If you just paint a boarder around the glass, then your glue is going to hold onto the paint & not the glass.

Love the light mod. I just removed and filled my nose badge in a few weeks back, so that is good in my book.

The add above the wing made me chuckle.
