Nothing against you or anything but I knew I should have bought this car when I had the chance. Now that it's no longer here in Lansing and you almost have the money to start work on it I don't have a chance at it. I felt so bad when it just sat here at Steves and nothing was being done with it. I just hate to see a nice car sit wasting away.



That's me working on the rear end.

Are you impling that it's up for sale on a mechanic's lien? Storage fees might be more then I can afford to pay.

Nope...... just the 1st time it's been outside since April & I thought I'd take a couple of pics.

No word yet on start date.

This is all starting to make sense to me now! When I was a young lad, my ultimate fav car was the Lotus Esprit. With the CT avail and so many wicked body mods, I see the resemblence and why I love the Fiero so much. Great work guys!

Ahh! Chop Tops! Perfect! I love chop top fieros! I am wanting to do this to my car, though the main problem I am seeing is, how the hell am I gonna do this? Since its a fiberglass car, how am I gonna chop it right? I am going to learn the classic leading stuff, but for this, I might just need to go over to Archie and learn the ways of the chop top, hehe.

In just a few weeks it'll have been 9 months since it got back here.

Any ideas on when we might get a plan together on it?

I knew I should of never let her leave Lansing!!!


I had her litterally in my hands and I let her go.

Archie - I still think you should sell it to me on a Mechanics Lien. I would be glad to pay you $100 a month for the time you have been storing it.

The resurrection begins.......



We gotta do something with the headliner...........



Here's your old clip laying in the foreground...



The new rear clip got put on & had the 1st cuts made to it before I could get a picture, You may notice this isn't the donor rear clip you sent us...... .......





We got the 1st leyer of fiberglass on it before it was time to go home.....





You know, give me a call on my cell tonight or at the shop tomorrow.

Archie

Ummm.... I'm curious too... wasn't that the fastback clip we brought down a couple of years ago for you? (it's been awhile, but I didn't recall there being any problems with it... but it was a long time ago - and I don't even entirely recall where it came from... was it the black & blue one?)



[edit] Yup... there it was back on page 1!

These guys deserve recognition too.

Minnesota and Michigan fiero guys, i thank you all !

Widebody ? Yes,...just not right now. Hopefully by the end of the year !
My current plans are to just do the clip swap, get it down to florida, enjoy it for the summer and then take it back later this year after saving more monies and have the widebody put on.

The widebody is just too sexy to pass up !

I know what you mean...there never would have been a better time for me to go widebody, but I already paid for bodywork once, and I already have my (non-wodebody) wheels. So maybe someday, but not now on this car for me.

Hey folks I'm the guy who sold Tony the car because I just let it sit in my garage year after year, and I know Tony has the passion to complete it. I still have a t-top Fiero, but you can't chop those, otherwise that might be down at Archie's shop, still even that would look good with the widebody booty on it...so who knows
