Funny u said that Jscott, cause i was just about to PM you for your advice ! Very timely.

I knew you had gone thru a similair decision and decided to put them on, so i wanted your opinion on what i should do.

Ok Archie keep the windows off for now, but i will call you on monday about possibly getting a couple other things done.

No problem... if anyone wants advice on painting disasters, I've experienced my fair share. I think my own paint booth is in my future.

Picture this car with a widebody, and closed mouth chin spoiler, and you will see where i am going.



The widebody kit:





The hood and decklid scoops will be wider like on #15, and also tweeked slightly.





The color will be torch red.



There will be other modifications as well. This is going to be fun.

Hey Tony, I was on a Recon mission at a local Lotus dealership and found some new ideas you'd might be interested in doing on #004. Are you game?

I lost the close of the Lotus Elise deck lid vents. This is the only one I was able to keep. It's just an idea but it looked good on the Lotus deck lid.

Don't you love how you can see where the hood was glued together?

That puppy is screaming for a Warber vent. Don't leave Archie's without one.

I'm about to order a front left marker from the Fiero Store...does anyone have a cheaper source? They are about $25 a pop at TFS.

Archie,

Any chance you can try out Dave's turbo scoops on #4 ? Talked with him and he said it is ok with him.



How about some shots of the new headliner and interior ?

Thanks.

What do you guys think of this style mouth openings, with maybe a little sharper (less rounded), more aggressive angles, look ?

It could work and look great but it will depend on what your doing with the rest of the car. Tony you will need a fiberglass nose for that mod.

Yeah i already know i am probably going to have to go fiberglass nose to get any decent tweeking done.

I know about the Fiero Warehouse one, but a couple other people are working on them, i understand.
