Shwing love black and on your car its going to look really good


I smell paint. Jet black paint! I was at Trenzs paint shop going over the details. Jet black is my choice for #020. I have a few more hardware issues to complete at WCF before paint.

It is my hope that the various curves and rear hips will not be lost in the paint. I truly wanted to go pear burgundy, but I wanted to switch out wheels and black center wheels don't "pop" with a burgundy color. Oh yeah, it's 1/2 the price-a win/win in my book.

Steve tweaked the left exhaust pipe this week-now the pipe has more of an attitude. Instead of shooting out straight, both pipes are cocked outward to the side.

Since the old cats outer cover was rusty. Steve (WCF) is replacing them with new skins to be chromed later (similar to #011).





The shop was a bit busy today, but Steve was able to re-adjust the tips. They're close enough now.

I've been working and #020 is running a bit behind, but Steve was still putting in some time fabricating CAT/CAPS.



As you know, the original caps are shot and rusted out. I'll have the outer layer removed, drilled and replaced. When I purchase the car I didn't know that the cats were rusted until my arrival at V8Archie's.




The fit just fine and I'll have them chromed later on.





The 40 amp relays arrived today along with the "Hot Dot" on/off switch for all three lights (headlamp, parking, & driving lamps).



I only needed to order one additional switch to match the other two.



I now can install the front braces.

Sorry about that, it's been a busy week.

Correction; we’re using Watson's switches and relays for the Audi driving lamps connections. The amperage is too strong and will blow the switches so we're using individual relays.

Two of the Watson's "hot Dot" on/off switches are hooked-up & running. Steering column too is fixed.



Watson is sending out a replacement switch.

Chris West finished up the power steering unit today. There was a minor issue with the inner pump assembly so I called Kevin from D1S and he assisted over the phone and now the system works just fine. However, I was informed that I need a skirt for the p/s unit, hehe.

Meanwhile, the gauges are hooked-up & functioning.









Due to limited foresight I didn't make plans for the p/s unit.

I was lucky enough to get by WCF last week and saw your car in person...Wow! The engine bay is unreal! I love the body kit as well. I was hoping that I'd run into one of your cars on one of my trips to Tehachapi. Being in the Imaging world myself, I hope I get to meet up with you some time to talk shop. Your cars are SWEET. Chris, Steve, and everyone at WCF do excellent work. I wish I lived closer so I could get my rides out to them. Mad Curl... you lucky dog!

Thanks. I can't say how great it is to live 1-mile from a shop that specializes in Fieros. They've helped me greatly in tweaking #020. I was there today finishing up the suspension and removing the old rusty cat covers.

Grinding off the welds and removing rusty cat covers.


Antlers ready for new caps.


Only the rear facing caps are being made.


Using galvinized hardware.


Two bolts only.


I'll have the cat-caps chromed at a later date, but now the back end has a cleaner look now.

I needed to snake a ground cable from the engine to frame/coil pack. Although the coilpack was grounded to the frame-technically the engine wasn't.



Although, the cable is out of the way-I decided to insulate it (just in case).




Snaking the cable through the back.


Also, there were some minor rubbing with the brake calipers. We fixed the problem using a washer to pull the brakes away from the rotor. Everything is fine now and #020 should be on the road on Wednesday.

Can't really see the cat covers, but knowing that the rust is now gone-I can sleep at night.

I LOVE that body you came up with. I am VERY seriously thinking of stopping by.
I just cant get over how good Leroy's (Taz) car looked at the coast run a few years back.

Off topic,.... My next Fiero build would be a chop (custom because Archie is a little to low for me) version of one of the "Mad Arch style" kits in my version of a Fast Back Indy Replica with an LS V8.

I will see if I can get over there My Tags are no good because the smog ref is not working with me

Thanks. Leroy's #013 (now owned by Chuck) is bad to the bone. The only other kit that maintains the Fiero body lines is the IMSA kit. Granted Whodeannie's too is very nice w/o the need for a wide body. As I've always said to many, "Wheels makes the car." Regardless of the kit if the wheels aren't popping neither will the car.

Test fitting p/s hose cover:



Welded and grind down:



I'll have the chrome shop grind down the weld a bit and chrome the part. It was cheaper to just make a cover instead of welding the piece onto the grill.



P/S is now completed:



Next: Watson's Street works reservoir tank. The stock one was too big and I had this part for several years and now it's finally getting it time to shine!


Location:



Steve making a custom tubbing adapter to fit the Fiero hose.



WCF making another power steering bracket. This one is for Fiero 4.9's 1987.



Tie rod adapters:



WCF cranked out another p/s bracket, but this is for a 1988.


The massive 19x9 shouldn't be too hard to turn with the p/s unit moving those 255.





Next: shop appointment for alignment.

The Redue: Tanknology.

The cut out:


The test fit:






Some minor adjustments and design cutting should do the trick.



The bracket is stainless steal so I'll have it polished




Overall nice design, but I will have to tweak it a bit more. The goal is to look like it belongs there instead of looking like a cheap coat hanger.



Removed one of coolent hoses that usually leaks after 6-months. The same task was done on #015.

There so good looking I guess I'll need another pair for #011.



Big 4"




A different angle, but they're doable.


The Corvette brakes pushed the tires out a bit, but not by too much.






As expected the master cylinder finally said, "bye, bye." We bleed the brakes twice and the right rear caliper had a few air bubbles, but all other three were good. Conclusion: I order a 1992 S10 and should arrive by Saturday or Monday. I guess if there was going to be a problem it was best that it happened in the shop's parking lot.

Seriously, I've been with this one for some time now. There's really only two factors:

1. Money. The burgundy pearl is nearly twice as much as the jet black. Since I drive my choppers there's a chance of hitting a pitch fork in the road.

2. Wheels. I have two sets and I like to change them. The black HREs don't "pop" with a burgundy pearl as would a black paint job. Black on black is IMHO a hotter look whereas the burgundy is so-so, but it still looks clean. Then again, who knows. I might change my mind in another month.


Since #020 is currently using #015's rims, I'll send this big boy out for additional modification

Before paint I will ask Fourpoint9 to do a photoshop using both wheels. Still, coughing up 5k for a paint job isn't for me. I'd rather pay 2.5k for black and call it a day. If my car was a show car only-then yes.

I hear you. Still, paint is the first thing people will notice about the car,
and black simply will hide all of the fantastic tweaks and mods you have done!
I am sure it will look stunning either way.
