You've done so much to your car, I have to go back and search through this thread to remember what you did. You have one very nice vehicle! What rims are you using again?


edit: Woohoo!! I own page 12 !!!

As I said many times before, I don't mind people copying my ideas as long as the give proper credit for the idea. For some that seems to be a hard thing to do. There are 2 Fieros that I know of now that have the engine window.

People in the import scene had been doing viewing windows in their hoods for years before that. Could it by that it is a "Duoc Tran Nguyen" window?

In the spring after it rains and then the sun comes out we get new flowers. So yes, there can be new things under the sun many times
Stimpy, I think the point here was that Skitime was the first to do it on a Fiero

Interesting. In all the years I had this mod and thousands and thousands of views of this mod on my Fiero suddenly someone says that someone somewhere had this before. Pics?

Unbelievable car ! You are a very talented and skilled craftsman. I am a new guy to the forum and seeing this thread has been an incredible inspiration. My Fiero is in need of some work at the moment and since I am going to machinist's school for the Army for 13 weeks, it will be at least September before it's back on the road. Hopefully I see you at Carlisle if I make it, but if I don't maybe I will spend some time cruising around Akron hoping to catch a glimpse ! Great car, man, and keep up the good work!

The problem that arises sometimes Ski is like in my case. I was new to the 3800 SC swaps but found allot of the ideas I used were your original ideas. I didn't find this out until I got into a longer conversation near completion and was told this. Loyde made sure I knew things were your Idea after I talked with him a bit. So sometimes it is a case of things being passed on off of the forum and in a garage.
I will know personally thank you for your ideas and effort you worked with to make my swap allot easier. Keep up the good work. Rick B

Skitime has long been an inspiration to me too. I always refer to my front chin spoiler as the Lawrence/Skitime spoiler. Now my rear chin spoiler, that was my Idea...

I think it's a reflection on the greatness of Skitime's car that his thread has been active that long. And it's also a reflection of how much this forum has grown...each new generation reads these older threads and keeps them active. My Firebird dash thread is still active from 2002.

naaahh.... Ski just keeps bumping it out before it goes into the archives


all Kidding aside, the lil red GT that Skitime has built has spurred on a lot of followers that seen what can be done to the Fiero and done in good taste.

ski,

as far as the acc tensioner. i too have modified the alum 3800sc bracket to recieve a tensioner. how much matl did you take off of bracket to create a flat surface for the tensioner. i currently have about .125 of the ribs remaining but im not convinced that the mounting surface is square to insure proper belt alignment. could you adise me on this?

thanks,

I've only been around this forum for a short time. I also belong to f-body.com, owning 2 trans ams and a z-28. You are a very talented man with super visions. I have 2 fieros i'm working on now and I would like to thank you for sharing all your ideas and knowledge with us. This is the first time I've seen this thread and it will take me some time to read and digest it. Thanks.

Well, I do have an engine power adding item I have designed. Just trying to decide if I should protect the concept. So far it appears patentable but patents cost big bucks. Any patent attorneys here?

Good luck in Iraq !

Bump—gotta keep it alive!

Ski, did you decide what to do about this yet? Sorry if you mentioned it in another thread, but I'm wondering what this item is that you've designed. Any updates on the car? Great thread! *thumbs up*

Ski, did you decide what to do about this yet? Sorry if you mentioned it in another thread, but I'm wondering what this item is that you've designed. Any updates on the car? Great thread! *thumbs up*

Thanks for bumping the thread. I was getting worried it was going to go to archives. I have not been doing anything with this mod for a long time. Lost the motivation to go the legal route and been busy doing other things. Hence the stand still. I am hoping to have it done before Carlisle this year.

Best bet is to market it, forget the patent. The patent just gives you the right to sue people that copy your product and that costs megabucks. You will spend the rest of your life in court and your patent will most likely be busted anyways. Spend the money on marketing instead and enjoy the time period before the market gets swamped with slight variants(or exact copies) of your concept if it becomes popular.
