Alex,


Madcurl is in Cali, in Half moon Bay.

Not sure on the distance to LA.

Now that would be scary if you and he got together to swap ideas.

Alex,

Not sure if you mentioned it or not, but how were the new seats connected to the car ?

Did you use the original fiero railings, or did u have to fabricate or buy something ?

The rails that were used where the stock rails. The new seats were just as wide, so I just redrilled the wounting holes on the rails to match the seats holes and bolted them up. It was so easy and its fully functional just like stock.

Okay I just got the time to sit down and do a little writeup on my visit to Socal.

First off let me say LA and the surrounding areas are AWESOME! Maybe its mee but the weather is great, girls are great, cars are great, and people are very polite. I was mainly in the Pasadena area visitong the campus of the school I will attend soon. (Aug 29) The Pasadena area is beautifull, many trees, hills, just an overall great moderatly big town/city.

My ventures there did not stop at visiting the campus. I went to downtown LA, Hollywood, Inglewood Beach, Huntington Beach, Glendale, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Dr, Hollywood Blvd. etc. But the highlight of my whole visit was the special trip I made to the one person who really get us car guys very excited...........CHIP FOOSE.
On friday I visited Foose Design and got to tour his shop, see a couple of the Overhaulin cars, meet a couple of the guys, see some of his projects, and an upcomming car for overhaulin being built. Let me say the guy look like a very generous and humble man on TV and he truly is. When I arrived he was headed to lunch in his black Monte Carlo SS, well he was cool enought to stop and talk to us a little. The cars they biuld are top notch and I can't belive I got to be in the presence of such an Iconic automotive designer and builder. So I know you want to see some pics so here they are:

Some of the sights:


Infront of the Art Center College of Design


Hollywood!!!

Outrageous Gas Prices!

Hollywood Blvd. (El Capitan Theather)

Stopped at Playboy Mansion ( No......it's the Wax Museum)

Beverly Hills


The Famous Rodeo Drive.



Now for the Coooool Rides I managed to see.. (missing are two Gallardos that flew by at ungodly speeds on the 405)
On the way to Orlando, Nissan Skyline GTR R32(?)

Hollywood Blvd., Ferrari Testarossa 90's


Rodeo Dr. Ferrari F430 brand spankin new, Aston Martin, and a Rolls Phantom





Beverly Hills Rent a Car.


Hollywood Blvd. Detomaso Pantera

I-Hop , Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster Pearl Orange (sorry a little dark)



Last But surely not least CHIP FOOSE !!!! (In all the excitement I did not take any pics of him )

Infront of Foose Design

Their paint booth

Charlies Box ( from American Hot Rod)

Inside shop

Couple projects for customers:

(Race car being built)


Engine Cover and center console for new overhaulin car,


One of his greatest accomplishments, winning the riddler award at Sema.

Overhaulin Mustang ( this was built for the guy in a wheel chair) It was there for a new center console addition.







The Stainless Foose Chopper


The upcomming Bel Air which will be on a show of Overhaulin




In the office was an original sketch he did for the new Unique Performance Camaro which will be built in collaboration with Foose Design.

I did get a pic with Shane from Overhaulin

And a couple doors down in Lanzini which they sometimes use on the show.


Sorry for such a long post but I know you all will enjoy the pics. I had a great time and will visit again. Now I can't wait to move out there. I think I might as for an application next time. lol. Would that be something or what?

Thanks for looking and hope you guys and gals enjoyed it.

Man Alex that is fantastic !

Foose is incredible, the man is sooooo ridiculously talented that it should be a crime for one man to posses all that skill.

Didn't hurt that he grew with a father who was nearly equally as talented.

As far as the application ,..hey dude it could never hurt ?? Even if you got to just hang around the shop and help out for free would be an invaluable education to me ?

Good luck on the move and school.

That's also my opinion, I would do it for free too. Like you said, just to be around a man like him, and be surrounded by some of the most experienced and known biulders would be a honor. The thing that separates him from all the other shows and builders is the passion and hearthfelt effort he and his crew put into a strangers' car. He is one of the people I respect most for his skill and giving nature.


Alex.

(Right now I am trying to get the red 88GT ready for the move. It will get trailered there but I want to replace things like plugs, wires, ig coil, distributor car and rotor, fan switch 180*, thermostat, KN filter, vented cross-drilled slotted rotors, O2 sensor, wipes, oil change, etc... I am so anxious)

Here are some of the parts. All are from the Fiero Store and everytime I order from there I am amazed at their service and quick shipping. Another plus is the PFF discount they have for us, it really shows how much they support the Fiero community.


The zinc plated rotors came in today. I figured I would give some feedback on them. They look great and are not expensive at all. I got them shipped for 145.00 to my door. This is the guys auction and I would recommend him for the non stock alternatives. Great Product!

Alex,
nice Pics, did you get a chance to show Chip pics of your work? I'm sure he would be impressed with your work, and would see how you would be an asset to this organization.

What an awesome visit Alex. I'm jealous...One small correction, though...The Riddler is awarded at the Detroit Autorama, not SEMA. Very Cool.

more times and eventually he will see the car we built..

beautiful car... Though I'm not too keen on the front with the large openings for the fog lights/turn signals... but overall it looks sweet. I'd like to see it without the black moulding though looks awesome though, true work of art... A+

Just an update, I recently sent in my CD of images to the Fiero Store 2007 Calander. Is anyone else doing so. I was hesitant because I was not sure of they only like to see stock cars or wild customs too. Anyone know? Anyway heres some more pics:
This is one of my favorites, it was during the assembly stage. It really shows off the width of the car.


Two interior shots:



Some of my favorite angles.




Thanks for looking,

Alex

I also forgot a couple new finished projects I was working on. Back when the project began I did a photoshop render of the car and now I found it. Next to it is the actual vehicle for camparison.




Another of the projects was a nicely framed 24 x 36 banner of the Domestic Driver article it was in.



Also a couple side profile shots which came out in great detail:





Once again Let the madness continue...

Alex

Edit;; I just noticed that my 85GT is also in the comparison pic above which
makes the list...85GT, 87GT WideBody, 88GT.

I remember those days, driving straight through with little or no sleep, hehe. There's a Coast Run next month. Pm Dale (Songman) for details.

Do you remember what year the Civic door hinge kit was from. I'm finding there are two kits,
one for pre 2000 and one for after 2000.

I think its the pre 2000. The only difference between the specific kits and the universal is the predrilled holes. I think the universal would work as well. Make sure to specify the strut strenght you want. The stronger the better.

Alex,

Did you ever consider going with the 3M invisible shield with that high dollar paint job ?

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Automotive/OEM/Solutions/Exterior/Protective_Film/

A lot of lamborghini and Ferrari owners have this installed to protect against rock chips and such. Supposedly very good stuff.

Tony,

I did just never got around to it. I also know that they have 5 year waranty on their products (?).
From one angle it is great, but what happens after the 5 years, I think the paint damage coverage is only 1000. Another issue arose is that I did not know if they did custom jobs. Since the car is a one off the whole front, rockers, hood quarters, a rear bubmper would need a custom template to be made. I did not go as far as getting them to come out and do one, but I can only imagine what it would cost. If you happen to know my questions please elaborate because we would like to preserve the paint as long as possible.

OH tje enginr is in the Back...?"little old Couple from Port Charlotte"...ha Sweet car i think there was only 1200 silver GTs in 88...?

2006 Corvette, and a 1997 Twin Turbo 400hp Supra. WOW the curves are awesome here is Cali. and the cars are awesome.
Hit an altime hi speed run today of 160 (?).....

Stay Tunned....
