Thanks Shem ! Been a long drought since I have been on the forum, but I am back and so is this project. Car has been relaxing in my garage for the past few years mainly,.... because of time and money !





Well finally I am starting to carve out some time. Time for some fresh air !

In the process of having them widened and refurbished to like new.





Going a little more aggressive on these. Doing a 19 x 9 with a 3 “ lip up front and 19 x 11 with a 5” lip on the rears.

I love the look of that nose! Is that something they are going to market? My only issue is how low it makes the nose. I had to take the chin off my car since it would not back out of the driveway with out hitting. Still the look of that one has me pondering how to make the driveway work with the car.

Finally got around to getting my front wheels widened and refinished.

First I had to take them to a local wheel shop to get them split.



Then came a stroke of luck,.... a fellow choptop owner ( thanks Mack) also with HRE wheels had the size lips I wanted and I had the ones he wanted, so we swapped ! Saved us both about $600 !



From there I had them reassembled and then picked up some new rubber.



All 4 wheels now a match !

The thought has crossed my mind about getting a little bit more aggressive with my lip spoiler. 🤔



Thoughts ?

"Lip spoiler", is that what those are called now? I'd say I'd take one of her, but at my age, I don't know what I'd do with her (nor, I imagine, would she know what she'd do with me.)

Oh, you mean on the car ... =))

I've always thought the early 70s Camaro Z/28 spoiler looks great on a Fiero

Big wheels, need big brakes.

Started the upgrade project by first getting my hands on some C6 brake calipers and rotors.



Brian’s Sanburn’s brake adapter kit was next on the checklist.






Brake lines, pads, and 88 Fiero calipers joining the project

I hate it when people mess with the Fiero's body. Many screw it up.

This one gets my blessing though! Very COOL!

It's good to see CT#4 is still alive. Looks like some sweet upgrades in progress, too.
