You could use paper mache to start a plug and finish it with bondo and glazing puty. grinding fiberglass doesn't get to me much, what I hate is getting resin on my hands, I can wear gloves all day but I somehow get it on me just before I finish.

It's a messy job, you're gonna get dirty no matter how hard you try to be neat. I have to remind myself that fact constantly.

The bumper fits very well, just like stock simply because I replicated all the mounting locations on the GT Aero even on the bottom side. Here are some comparison shots with a GT Aero. I did notice that the screw hole locations are different at the bottom & sides on my Formula so I will not pre-drill those locations. I'm guessing the Notchies will be similar. Notice the overall width is the same with the only difference at the bottom corners where the GT kicks out and the Fi355 curves in. Notice also how much shorter the fi355 is to the GT, I'd say it's about 3 inches. These will be the last shots until I get my demo nose painted & car lowered. I'm debating whether I should start a new thread for exterior work.

I saw that link. Would'nt there be a major cooling issue if installing a nose designed for side radiators onto the Fiero?

Also, most of the cool air will have to come from below if on a Fiero, IMO. Air flow through the side vents will have to be somehow be pushed to the center & then re-directed rearward to the central radiator. Seems like there would be alot of turbulence inside the nose.

The bumper pad noses grab air from the bottom. Just need to do the same thing with the 360 nose. I'd plumb the side vents to the front brakes.

Also, did you notice that the first pic in the ad was from a 355? The rest are 360 pics.

Yes, I noticed that, my donor f355 nose was purchased off of Ebay as well. It was quite a learning curve to tweek that to the Fiero, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. The real benefit is that it now provides the foundation for any other designs that I do which will only involve cosmetic changes; critical dimensions & flanges are already done !

Before the new nose can be installed the steel bumper will need to be trimmed on the lower corners to make room for the new turn signals. Also, the lip on the ends will need to be angled back to 45 degrees to clear the valance panel flange.

I decided to replace the old light bulb sockets with the newer right angle 3157 type . The Nissan turn signal lights have a 4-slot socket instead of the GMs 3-slot so I had to use a dremel to re-shape the slots in the light housings. I suppose that wouldn't be necessary if Nissan sockets were used ( 3-wire version).

The Catz fog lights weren't cheap but they came with its own wire harness & relay setup. While I was at it I decided to replace the old beater horn with Ferrari type duo trumpets. Anyone know what that big relay on the left is for?

Nice! Is the Pontiac logo fixed on to the grill yet? Maybe try on a front bumper emblem?

That BillSpyder grill is a POS. I bought one and waited for 3 months to get it, once I got it I took it apart and tossed it the trash. It didnt have a curve in it, was not welded together, etc. I have a OEM 355 grill now (will Robert does).

I purchased the aluminum grill from Billspyder a few years ago. Although it was curved & edges rounded it was held together with threaded rods, nuts & spacers which I thought could have been improved upon.

Ahh I didnt know he made a cured one now. Well anyway the treaded rods did not work with my AD355. It seems like a well made 355 replica grill would be a good selling item, not only for kit cars but also for real Ferrari owners. I have found that a lot of Ferrari owners are very cheap.

With a lowered suspension the possibility of scraping the bottom side of the nose on a driveway somewhere becomes more likely. Just as a precaution I added a pair of 1/4" skid pads secured by rivets.

Hi Amida!

I've been lurking watching this for a while. Count me in as part of the interested....

The one nagging question that I have had in the back of my head watching this unfold is............is this the same height as a stock GT front fascia, or is it shorter? In the pics on page 13, it looks like the nose is significantly shorter. Don't know if that is a result of the aftermarket ground effects that you have on your Formula, but I think it makes the nose stand out more instead of blending in with the rest of the car.

If it blends in better with stock GT style ground effects, I'd definitely consider it to replace the nose on my GT.....see the car and the buildup here:

thx!

Jeff, Nice build. It looks like you put alot of work into it; nice interior too.

Actually the Fi355 nose sits maybe 1.75"-2.00" lower at the front hence the reason for the skid pads. You'll notice that I've replicated the bottom GT mounting flange that bolts to the bottom of the radiator. In order to do that the wheel arch on the nose was made the same height as the GT, then slopes only slightly up towards the front. The stock GT nose would look so much better if the bottom was more level.

My Formula was a stolen recovery vehicle purchased at an auction near Sedro Woolley, WA. It was picked up by a forklift which crushed the rockers that was on it. The car sits way, way too high, and I Don't know the origins of these rockers but they kick the sides out about 4 inches and appear to sit lower than stock as well. I may put an Enzo touch on it since I don't have any replacement rockers for it.

Thanks,

Rob

Personally, I like the XLR mix with the fiero. That would be a body kit that i would enjoy. If i had the time and talent i would take on that project my self, but honestly wouldn't know where to start.

Hello Rob,

Thanks for the reply, the props, and the explanation

I have to repaint the front and rear bumpers on mine (poor paint prep.....thanks Keystone!), so might as well update the looks as well. Let me know when this is ready for prime time. Awesome work!!!

I think Archie rockers have a sharp beveled edge with no side walls. One thing is for sure, the stock Formula rear bumper doesn't work with it. I have a GT rear that I can throw on instead, or maybe I can add somekind of Enzo-like diffuser attachment to it.

You bet. Wheels are off right now, thought I'd see about dropping the suspension first before taking some finished photos. The ride height really looks horrible.

I have Archie rockers and have been thinking about putting a formula rear bumper on my car and then adding a diffuser. Make a bolt on and I will send you a check
Right now I have a GT bumper but don't like the body lines, if I keep it I will have to smooth it or something, it just doesn't flow for my taste.

So, do the rockers on my Formula look the same as yours? Your GT rear bumper still will be better than the Formula. With the bevel cut on the bottom side of the Formula bumper it seems perfect for something to bolt up to it, don't you think?

Exactly what I was thinking, the black lip at the bottom would be easy to bolt to with a few holes. I was thinking about something close to what Bubba did but without the bottom flair and putting the tips in the stock locations.
The screen would help with air flow but help hide the cradle and exhaust pipe.

That is pretty low back there. It reminds me of the rear of a speedboat, there is this spoiler-like thing at the waterline with turnbuckles on it. I would raise it up a bit & give it a little angle too.

I would cut the bottom almost flush with the screen, I don't care for the lip. But a 3 inch extension with a screen in the back around the exhaust tips.
I don't know, it will probably be a lot less work to just smooth a GT bumper

I don't know, it will probably be a lot less work to just smooth a GT bumper


Maybe move the tips into the license plate nook & move the plate up. It's BurgerKing..have it your way!

I have thought about that, but I'm too old school for that I like the tips where they are. I would put some in the front if I could and have surround sound

The Archie rockers disrupt the lines that are molded into the stock bumper, I could live with it if the line between the two colors was filled and the bottom of each side was widened another inch to match the rocker width.
Slice this part and cut the bottom of the bumper so it can be pulled out.




Then all I need is some 245s on the back

245s? How about 275s? So, do I have Archie Rockers? Look how small it makes the rear look.
