Looks a lot like FierociousGT's but not quite... Unless he's changed his since the build thread I read...
Can anyone help me out? I really need some info on this rear hatch. Thanks!


Thanks whodeanie, I found the thread on it. 'Preciate the tip!

Hey there. You all don't know me. Yet. Huge fan of the chops. One day... What I am posting here for is this. I just witnessed the sweetest set of Lambo doors that I had ever seen! I have seen his work, and love the quality. I have also seen some Lambo doors that just suck wind.
1. Are these being produced by Archie?
2. If so, pricing and availibility.
3. Will they come with all hardware?
4. I need these!
All of you that have lost your minds with the designs...AWESOME!!! You do not need medication. It would only hamper the creative process.

Way cool! Thank you Madcurl. Although it is true that I am a wizard when it comes to cars and tools, I am not so good at my finances. I have Amy here for that. She says that it will have to wait until after the holidays. I am new to the forum, but an avid reader for years now. I am going to keep track of any postings to the possibility of having Archie do another run of this product. Really impressive though. Don't throw out those jigs just yet. Best doors i have seen to date. And I believe a fair price, considering the work involved. Just a side note, Madcurl, your rides is just ridiculous. Ridiculously cool. Great execution. Hope to see her in person one day. Enjoy your posts. Thank you for your committment to our little cars. Maybe if I sell this soon...

Shaking things down.

Talked with Archie and it seems there was some oil in the plugs and they had to clean the rear ones to get the car to fire up. He recommends i definatly do the front ones as well, but warns they are a PIA hehehe.



The car has not been run very much at all for the past few years, even when it was owned by Choptop (previous owner).



The brakes also seemed a bit soft or sketchy (would that be rust ?).

Archie really doesn't deal with stock engines, so what type of checklist should i go down to shake it down whenever i get it home ?

I know that Steve worked on the brakes some after I put them back together when the car was still here in Lansing and I don't know what has been done since then but they were in need of a total rebuilding back then. I would look at maybe replacing everything from the master on out. All the lines and hoses looked bad. If I remember right I had a real hard time getting the right rear caliper back on.

As I said I have no idea what has been done but if it was me I wouldn't take any chances.

By the way - it's great to see her getting back on the road again. I'd love to see her and maybe get my hands dirty working on her again. But alas just a few to many miles between us.

Hey Rick,

Thanks for all the help and the info !

So you did not see them after Steve worked on them ? I think he replaced the calipers if i remember correctly (with some used, but good ones), but i don't think he did any work with the brake lines or hoses.

I thought he was only going to put on a set of old calipers and pads that he had around. You should ask him for sure but I think he only did the fronts as they were locked up solid when we first picked up the car. I worked on the backs but I reused what was on the car. Like I said before I remember having to pry the pads apart on the right side just to get them back on the rotor. Also I reused the old brass gaskets and had a problem with them leaking when we bleed them. I wasn't worried at the time as we were only thinking about making sure she was able to be transported down to Archie.

Hope this helps.

Easy fix...have Archie drop in an LSx before picking it up!

Good to see #4 is still alive.

Hehehe actually that wasn't the truck that delivered the car, he was just transporting it back to their main depot. The car arrived via a 72 foot double decker transport truck that had about 4 other cars on it. Mine was up high on top.

The illinios based hauler, AM/PM carriers ,makes a run down to florida virtually every week,..they were extreeeeemly reasonable price wise and very professional.

Well since the car is seeing "home" for the first time in the last two years, I think that the "adventure begins now" Glad to hear it is at home, and very anxious to see the direction you take it in from this point on.

Posted yesterday



Good luck, it is a great looking car!

Right now i am saving up for the widebody kit,..in the meantime i am going to do my best to get everything mechanically solid and refreshed and or replaced.

I also plan to work on some custom hood and decklid ideas while i am saving for the widebody.



I have the 5 " wing stands and a spare wing, so i will probably do the wing tip extensions like curly has on #11 aka the silver choptop, and switch them out from time to time to see if i like it.



Right now i am kind of liking the stock wing's low profile look.

Yes i probably plan to move the wing back anyways.

Color ? Grey is nice, but black has always been my favoirtie car color, so i decided to make a change and i fell in love with this
color when a fellow CFF member brought his car to one of our meetings.



The color is Torch Red. The car and the color looks totally amazing tearing down the road.

Time has been at a premium since #4 arrived back in Florida.

Finally got some time to devote to the car this past weekend. Blacktree and myself spent most of Sunday, going over the car diagnosing potential problems.

Our first big task was trying to solve the mushy/soft brakes. Bleeding the brakes helped a little, but not nearly enough.
Checked out the e-brake, because if it is misadjusted it can throw things off.

Turns out the driver side line was rusted/broken and not connected, while the passenger side was intact, but not connected either. We played around with the caliper arm associated with the e-brake, but that did nothing either. Stumped.

I had planned to upgrade to vette brakes, but that now may happen sooner than later, rather then spend the bucks on stock replacements.

Headlights were next as my passenger side was not coming up. played around with it and finally got both to work, but very incosistent, seems a rebuild is in order.

If you have the gen 1 motors, might as well bite the bullet and upgrade to Gen 2. Nearly everyone, (except BuddyCraigg) agrees the gen 2 are vastly superior.

I suggest you nominate this thread for the construction forum.

We actually got the headlight motors working for now,..i still think they need replaced (slow), but it may take a back seat to more pressing needs.


BTW ,...how do you get your thread nominated to the Construction zone ??

Like we have discussed many times before, Check your Grounds to ensure they are working right. I had slow headlights on the 87 before i did the 4.9 swap. during the swap i added like 4 grounds and they worked awesome after that!
