Very cool work so far! I like the body mods, and those new decklid vents!

There's just one little spot that doesn't look right, imo:

The scoop flows ok with the rearbumper this way but some other parts need some tweaking here and there so I am thinking what can be done at this stage and what is better to leave alone...

So most of the work goes into 'project Interior' and 'project Engine' now

here is the result of the last body change; I modified the windsplitter, added some pieces and smoothed it.

also the little cutout at the lower edge in the middle section is the same style as on the reardiffuser (to keep it in style )

basically the fiero is ready to go to the painter,...although there are always several little issues to correct... but its about time to hand it over, get the body done so I can move on......I just noticed I started this thread almost 2 years ago... get a life !

I think 2 years is worth the wait. I know long term projects can get alittle discouraging, but that is the baddest fiero body I have seen. You do excellent work. When are you going to get these on the market?

I think the actual work started at least 3 years ago....also learning to fiberglass, and repairing mistakes, took time. I like to learn doing stuff Ive never done before but it takes time....so there are more ideas than results for the body right now but I will stick to how it looks today:

I look at it a bit like this; with gunmetal grey...uh..'primer'

You keep trying eh? Thanks but "time" is still the most limiting factor...so no copy anywhere soon..please dont wait for it.

Yeah appearantly it starts to look a bit like you ....but I dont have your silly flames lol.. Although I have to admit I stole your engineswap idea too ...now deciding how I will paint the cleaned supercharger, it needs some coating anyway because it starts oxidating again

..since the gunmetal/aluminium/(and a little CF) combo is getting the main color-material theme on the whole fiero I will try to get them matched since several projects are overlapping now anyway....So basically the painting tryouts on smaller interior and engine parts will help to choose the right shade of gunmetal color for the body.....Of course this is some b*llsh*t reason why it takes sooo long...but a primered body allowes minor washing, no scare for scratches because you can fix them easily, no waxing, hmmm might keep it this way

Youre welcome ! I know now there are several things I should have done differently (like some theft lock lol)...but then it never gets finished!..so if you seriously start with it I have some tips that should make it better matching to the rest of the body etc...I learned a lot trying to fiberglass and molding but time goes faster than getting ideas done...

Ok heres the latest update... tomorrow I will finally hand over the fiero to the painter !! I still see a lot of stuff to do but they do many showcars so I just hope they finish it right...I didnt do much last weeks except for some pre-fitting of the the mesh for some vents. This is already the 3rd mesh variation on the fronthood vent (which is the second:variation on the second hoodvent...)


same change on the rear, still need to fab some frame for it

The plan tomorrow is to bring the fiero overthere and take off most body panels (except roof and rearclip) , organise the bolts nuts and fasteners that come off and hand it over....wish me luck

I've been watching this thread since the beginning and I can't wait to see the car painted. Your interior and body mods are truly inspiring. Seeing the marvelous things you've done with your car is the primary reason I want to learn how to fiberglass...heh. I bet you're looking forward to being done even more than we're looking forward to seeing it done!

Beautiful weather this morning so after 2 and a half houres I stripped almost everything from the frame (except for the doorskins because I couldnt reach to drill out the rivets under the door). The roof and rearclip will stay on the car. Also took off the lights, mirrors, sunroofseal, mesh and strips, licenseplates etc. I have done this several times before, now I hope it is the last time!

Hi, I'm getting ready to have the hood and the Stage 2 scoops painted. Already painted the underside of the hood flat black yesterday. I'm off work for 3 months now (changing jobs), I need to come over to look at your car sometime soon!

Let me know how the painter works for you and how the price is - I might bring the stuff over there if he's really good!

Kolja, right now I am more concerned about the finishing of the parts I made than getting them to be painted right! They do a lot of bodywork, merging fiberglass stuff with euro/japanese showcars but also 'house of color' flipflop paintwork at a friendly price. I dont want the flipflop paint but I like the fact theyre doing showcars and pay some attention to the job. Come and look and decide when its finished, youre welcome to stay at my place.
The plan is to bake all the parts so all the sh*t and airbubbles come out (aaarghhh!), then a fresh base primer and sanding, then choosen metallic paint, sanding and the second layer of the paint, and finally the "better" clearcoat whatever it means All this is out of my hands, I just hope they do a good job.
Kohburn: I didnt wanted to wax and mold the bumper before paint! I would like to help you out but its better to finish this first, please dont hunt me

Honda Accord or Civic, the lights are clear aftermarket for a Prelude. Cant recall the exact years but the info must be somewhere in this thread..!

Kolja (Yellowstone) I think it will take a week from now, and give me another week to put most of the stuff back on the car...I'll keep you updated.
Heres an earlier testfit of the Fierowarehouse quarterwindow:

It has the dot matrix print and in all I think it looks a littlebit better than than the Fierostore's (=Kahines):

Both fit nice but the stocklike matrix of Doug's windows is really a pre...and fastback owners always check each others quarterwindows
I took the mirrors apart to have the housings chromed because after polishing and clearcoat they still could look better. I also need to change the outer dew wipes which I actually started on one side but then I got the call
The decklid vents also need to be finished and I am organising my collection of bolts, nuts and other fasteners...because I used a minimum amount of fasteners while swapping parts all the time, for the final assembly I need some more
So theres still a lot of work to do while the fiero is not here.

What a tasteful concept of a /.... refined fiero...
I'm really impressed and excited to see your end result.
After the time you've invested you deserve a big thumbs up.

Got mine completely disassembled and hottanked, its pretty clean now Maybe too much cleaning; the rotors are pretty shiny , I guess the teflon coating is gone....would that matter much? .....

Already prepared for an intercooler...:

And heres a mockup of some cleaned and painted parts:

But it will take a lot more work and parts to get it to run....winterproject
First I need to get the body done!

^I'd recommend that. Its the last one you will ever neeed. On my friends gtp it was makin all sorta of rattling noises from the snout. One last thing to fix down the road, and I'm sure you don't want to smell that rank supercharger oil twice.

Yes the m90 is painted. The coupler was the first reason to take it apart, it had about 60Kmiles but its already worn....Its already on the long shoppinglist for ZZP....

see you added the pics, turned out pretty clean!
