I think the scoop angle fits well with the notchie window. The door moulding will have to be deep, almost like a scoop.

Shipping day. It takes three work hours to make a box, pack & transport to Greyhound...how tedious. I'm ready for a cocktail.

I think I read in another thread or earlier in this one that you had planned to create some rear fender flares (possibly some subtle ones)? Starting those soon by any chance?

Rob,
you have a pm.
also when glassing in the front blinker buckets, is it recomended to do a layer of glass on the outside (front side) of the bumper or just use short strand filler?
thanks

I Picked up some remnant red cloth from my supplier; thought I'd make some pillar caps with it for the Formula.

I haven't decided yet what to do about my mismatched wheels/fenders.

I've never been a fan of exposed carbon fiber, if I was keeping this gun I think I'd paint the barrel.

Yep, same stuff. I think the carbon pillar caps will be a cool way to brighten up the otherwise dull black plastic pieces.

That'll do it. I just noticed the wheel opening on this rocker looks out of round. Will need to fix that. I wonder if it's the same on the passenger side.

Mine have a flat spot but it depends on how you're looking at them. Perspective will make it look flatter than it is.

That's strange, your rockers don't have the integrated belt mouldings like mine does. My mouldings are actually part of the fiberglass. Are they from different makers?

Yes mine are from V8Archie, the front of the rockers has a larger vent than yours and no molding.

Rebuilt the door hinge ( with new pins, bushings, & rollers from Rodney Dickman) which had a severe amount of sag. What a PITA this job was. It was so bad that I could lift the rear of the door about 1/2". After removal I discovered that this was not just a simple bushing & pin relacement, the actual holes holding the bushings & pins were worn out & elongated & the lower bushing was actually missing. The only way to fix this was to weld up the holes and drill it back to normal size. This was an all day job & just for the driver side only. For anyone with the same issue, you might consider purchasing the whole rebuilt assemblies from the Fierostore to save you the hassle. Nevertheless, the new hinges are great, there is now zero sag & the door shuts like a dream.

Got one B-pillar done. Should look alot better once clear coated. I'm not sure how strong the 3M double sided tape is, I may just try it & see. If it falls off on the road, then I'll know it needs to be bonded. I'll also need to get new sail panels & arrow heads.

If you ever get back to the F512 TR nose, I would be interested in one. Personally I think it looks like a natural on the Fiero.


Thanks

Yes I think it's a good nose for the Fiero, but people who've said they were interested have now disappeared so it's on the back burner now. Also, I've learned that fiberglassing large body panels, such as bumpers, is really, REALLY, hideous work. I'd rather have someone else do it if I can afford it. But, the dilema is that I don't think enough will be sold to make cents. Make sense?

But, we all know how these "who's interested" threads work. You take the total count & divide by 5 to get a more accurate count.

Listen, I understand completely where you are coming from. I wouldn't do it if a) I wasn't going to make some cash or b) I really wanted one for myself. So if it never happens I wouldn't be upset.

Would you let me know where you got your 512TR nose from that you are using for the mock up? That would help me not have to start from scratch.

Call me crazy but I like it better than the F355??

Thanks

Okay, you are crazy. The fi355 nose with slanted side scoops is a great combo. I got the 512 bumper a few years ago off ebay.

Thanks for offering. I'd like to see at least 5 people who want the fi512 nose. It still won't cover my cost, but perhaps it'll create more interest.

The SEM brand plastic coat has a nice satin finish. The adhesion promoter is a solvent that etches the plastic helping the color to bond to the surface. Great stuff for interior plastics as well.
