thanks

It would be fairly simple for you to do. I would assume that the side mounting screws are blind/hidden & secured from the inside of the fenders. To fill in the moulding channel I would first pour some urethane foam into the channel, then grind down the foam & fiberglass to 3" below the channel, then laminate 2-3 strips of fiberglass, level & smooth with bondo.

Been sick lately and uber-busy at work. Should be able to get some things done on it this coming weekend though. I'm hoping to get the mirrors mounted correctly, the headlights in, and get the new fenders adjusted.

When you show various molds, parts, etc, can you list specific materials that you used? For instance, what materials (brand names?) did you use to make the angled guage pod mold halves and finished product out of? Are you using vacuum potting? What kind(s) of casting resin? That sort of detailed info I would find ver-r-r-r-y interesting.

HI all

Don't know if you, Amida, ever go to F-Chat, but I thought you may like this pic of a notchie-F355 type kit..... On the real pic there were a wee bit of lewd drawings, so I had to remove them........

Go to the Alumilite site: http://www.alumilite.com

There is a great how-to section there on mold making & casting.

The most challenging piece to cover is the lower dash due to the severe curvature of the piece. I take a day to first pre-stretch the hide/fabric to mold it over the piece, this will help make glueing & application, the next steps, alot easier to do.

I love it a man after my own heart. I always draw and sketch out my designs to. Have you looked the Lamborghini gallardo body on the fiero frame its a perfect fit. Thats what i based my project on because the body lines of the car which are very similar to the XLR. You can check out my thread on here 'been living in a cave" or on youtube by searching for cardboard car check it out and I hope you enjoy I plan on beginning my fiberglass this spring with the help of fieroboom, hopefully. Enjoy the show keep up the good work i'
ll be watching.

I think 'JimmyS' has something to do with a Gallardo rebody on a stock Fiero wheelbase. I can see restyling the GT fiero will a more chiseled look like on the Gallardo. I'd still like to do a stretched GT with a slightly tilted roof.

Beginning dash assembly. Joining upper & lower sections, Installing defrost vents, A/C vents & passenger side access hatch. It's looking more like a dash now.

Amida, your work is gorgeous!!

If you ever have some spare time to sketch/doodle around...

I would love to see what you would come up with with an Audi R8 inspired interior, with your own personal touches.
(Or Lamborghini Murcielago, Gallardo; Lotus Evora; Audi A6, new TT-RS) Or a cool blend of the above, while keeping the possibility of a double DIN Navi (easily readable for the driver, extra gauges, and shallow lilke the OEM Fiero dash, or the F-355 dash (so it doesn't eat into cabin space)

Thanks. The Fiero could use an updated interior and I'm up for doing one, but it'll have to be very affordable for the Fiero nuts and I'm not quite sure how to do it cheaply. Perhaps just re-shape the dash & re-use all existing parts/components/instruments etc. But, I would at least change the airvent to the round G6/G8 type.

I've been a little tied up with getting other projects out the door. Will be starting on the chin shortly as the weather is looking better nowadays.

Wow, Rob, lots of product going out the door lately! Do I see a bigger workspace in the future? I hope so, you deserve it, hard work should be rewarded. Can't wait to see the fi355 chin spoiler... I mean gravel scoop
Got my car lowered 1.5" I think that the chin is not going to be that bad for clearence.

Lookin' good. I'll be going with 2" lowered spindles next. I'm close to shipping out a few Fi40 dashes, once those are on their way I"ll be diving into the fi355 gravel scoop.

I am wanting a f40 carbon fiber dash. I am taking the middle console out and not using it since there is nothing there that I need other then the shift knob and e brake that I have modified to set over next to the shifter. I am doing a 01 northstar with a g50 and extension and modification on frame structure and aero dynamics of the kit. Inside is all carbon kelvar and roll cage with mr2 rear window. I need a dash if interested in making one since I dont have time for that.

I've experimented with carbon fiber for Ferrobi's Fi40 dash pod, and I must say that the amount of labor that goes into it, compared to normal fiberglass fabrication, is quite a bit more when using the vacuum bagging method. I'd like to try the infusion method next, but either way producing a good looking carbon fiber part is more costly. For a dash quote please e-mail me at: FieroInteriors @Juno.com. Thanks, Rob

build thread is comming. waiting on the wide body from archie and i have some mods i have to do to both bumpers.
i'll take pics and when it starts comming together, i'll start a thread and start posting.
seriously though this bumper is solid and much better quality than most of the panels i have seen on the import cars!
i'm glad i went with your bumper, worth every penny!!
