Here are pictures of the roofscoop I made myself. It is semifunctional: it lets air in and it lets air out!
I made a spoilerlike shape at the rear and an opening to let the air out (+10HP
This one fits fiero's with a sunroof, it will be between the windshield at the sunroof. I am going to smooth it in with the roofsection. The front edge of the scoop has the same curve as the edge of thye windshield...

They're also pretty cool-looking. Good work!

EDIT - oops!! Somebody already covered this, and in much better detail. Tha's what I get for not reading the rest of the thread... :: blush ::

the rear lower facia really is the original mockup.there is a small basic woodenframe which I covered with a kind of foam (L+R side) Then I sculpted the foam to the lines of the bumper. Covered it with some layers of fiberglass (thinner layers towards the original bumper). Then houres of smoothing and sanding. It sounds quite easy but I made many changes during the process...

Well.this was made from scratch!
I have several drawings made but the final product is totally different!

I have some doubts whether these two different materials will hold up. I have made a few repairs and drive the car like normal to see if serious cracks appear. If so I will have to make a mold and a one piece product.

I finally have the right gelcoat and release wax to make a good mold. I already destroyed some small molds due to wrong materials. So It takes some confidence to try that again...

But I better do the job well now, then discovering cracks in my fresh paint later

I am sorry . I thought "naca" was a short name for "nascar". I also know they are in the wrong direction. First this is just an designlike idea. I made them a bit functional to vent hot air out (trust me they're at a quite good position for venting). And water coming in thru the vents/ducts follows the same route as the water from the sides of the decklid.

Car looks GREAT!
Did you make your side scoops as well?
Are they the whole panel?
I like the way they look. Any chance of any on the market?

Thanks!

Bryson:The sidescoops are actual Meecham copies, I just removed the 2 fins on the intake and smoothed them... The M3 skirt is a seperate piece molded to the original Fiero -skirt. They mount to the quarterpanel just like the original.

Oh, I wasn't pickin' on your designs, not a bit. I think they're pretty cool...

I'm just a long-time NASA fan/geek, and I figured that you'd like to know the accurate term for what you were showing off.... no worries, just tryin' ta help.

i really can respect the work that was done here especialy the hood vent, but i thought it might be of interest to know the truth,,,,

its really nice to shift into 5th at 200kph
and watch the looks on other drivers faces

im into stealth mode, a sleeper, it keeps the cops off my back and i dont have to waste my time with wannbe ricers

performance is truth, pretty is candy coating, a finish, a way to tie form and function. With no function it is art. There is nothing funnier than a pretty car that has does not have a balance of performance as well (but this was not my point in my earlier post)

In this thread I am showing only what I am doing to the body to give people some ideas, Like I saw mods from other people here and I got my ideas.

This is not about performance, trust me I have plans for the powerplant next year
(not talking about the interior yet pfff there goes my sparetime!)

But first I focused at the appearance of the car, maybe it's just because it is my job to (try to) make things look good (and still not satisfied)

Driving these cars for about 6 years I learned a lot about them and for me it is now a perfect platform for a nice customized.....well I may say: sportscar

If I had a Ferrari I wouldn't dare to modify it myself...but this Fiero is really MY CAR!

Within a week I should have the pictures of the new exhaust parts and tips, pictures of the rear clip (for the altezza's) and the mockup of the nose.... slowly everything is coming together

edit: nothing really rusts on my Fiero, except the crappy exhaust they (hmmm) put on my fiero. The left side tips actually fell off during driving! Thats why I am changing some of these parts. They are clamped in stead of welded so I can use them for...another engine?.... as well.

Very nice work, I just finished a very modest first project, a vented hood, but yours looks great.

BTW it looks great with no wing, I hope you are planning to leave it that way.

Yes, there will be no wing.I think a Fiero looks better without it. And now I can show off the rear vents and scoop . However if you see a wingless fiero next to a "winged" fiero it looks like someting is missing

IF I would want to put on a wing, it is too late, already sold the wing

I figured you would also up the performance
which is why i posted this after my tirade

This is one of the new tips. I couldn't find a (good size) Y pipe so I had to make them myself with a bit of help

this is a GTR logo which I will paint and put in my trunk cover which I already made (pics when finished)

Thats a cool looking fascia, deifinatly different. Where's it from, or did you mold the whole thing yourself from scratch? Also, can we have some pics of the tail light progress? I haven't seen any other tail lights on a fiero except the conversion kits and someone's supra lights.

second pair: the modified ones which are on my car for years now. (Kolja see I did your mod! )
third pair: the Honda prelude altezza's. Got them prewired now and almost ready to go in the back (finaly after 2 years!)

Have you got the altezza's installed yet? would love to see those in there with some info on how you got them to fit looks like it would be too hard.

I have been looking for a nice bumper to start with....I found this Hondabumper (sorry) at a scrapyard. Also got a coupe bumper (which I wanted to modify to start with) but plans change many times

The idea was to use the mounting points and upper side of the the coupe-nose to have a good fit to a Fiero and use the Honda bumper as a basis for the final shape. Both bumpers are cut into pieces! This will be a shorter nose than stock, however I had to lenghten the honda bumper with 6 cm's....I wanted an agressive look and an extra intake...a bit like aston martin or jaguar and I will have some sleek lights in it (honda prelude white cristal lights)....

A BIG Mouth version would also be possible when you remove the middle bumper part! But first I'll stick with this setup...

Tomorrow I should get a new bunch of photo's, will scan and post them asap.

If all is finished I might start a thread about the building process....There's a lot I learned that other people might benefit from (I hope)

No need to be sorry, just because its off a honda isn't a bad thing. Its even better because you're going the custom route which is tougher.

Keep the forum updated on your car... or at least me. I like following your progress because its coming together really well.

wednesday afternoon I decided to clean up the enginebay. I removed the complete Cruisecontrol assembly as I never use it. pulled out the insulation. Prepared the metal for paint (hammerite black metallic). I took out the vent brackets and the vacuum lines to paint them red. also put the GTR trunkcover in the trunk. These are the results


drove it already that evening. It still is a daily driver

i am freakin impressed.....specially how to modified the rear fastback clip there for the lights. I think we should become business partners so you can mass produce that product, and i'll sell them here in the states, whahahhaa. Again, GREAT work...thumbs up to you

Front has some minor changes now and the Crystal lights came in today! They seemed soooo big to me but when I placed them on the bumper I thought/think I can make them fit in there

Thanks. Well this is the mockup so there's lot of foam(board) in it, fiberglass, filler, wood and filler...Did I mention filler? I will take a mold from it and then the 1-piece product. Maybe I could make more
