Are you any good at fiberglass? I'll pay for that front bumper if you can make a copy of it.

I've really enjoyed reading this thread and keeping up with this build. I think that builds like these are important to the Fiero community because honestly a good deal of Fiero owners at one point either before owning a Fiero or after they bought one considered a replica build. It's important that indepth builds such as yours be documented because I believe that there is quite a great amount of people out there that just don't understand the amount of work that goes into building these replicas. Sometimes, as you are showing, it's almost like building a vehicle from scratch. I think that some people out there simply think that you can buy a Fiero, throw a body on it, paint it, do some little work, and then drive. It's not that simple. You along with other guys such as DeLorean00's Ferrari build have my upmost respect among Fiero owners simply because not only do people like you have the drive to actually do the work but pay the time (and money) to actually see the build through.

Keep up the great work.

lamborghini car jacking....







thanks everyone for the support.... and yes these cars do take alot of work..... not only do i see that now but alot of people will pay to have the stretch done, to have the body mounted, to have the major components done..... im on such a tight budget, i have to do every little thing myself....... its a whole lot harder then it sounds, but my whole reason for doing this is bc when i wanted to build a replica i couldnt find one single build diary that had any info of the car prior the body being totally done minus body work for paint..... so i decided to fix that.... by showing every step of every part of my build..... so when someone wants to build a car of their dreams... they can look at this diary and have more info then yahoo. its not the best build, or the most accurate... but im 23 and its my very first build like this..... but its better then nothing....... thanks again for everyone supporting the build

Got to meet this fellow today..... I went to look at a used fiero for sale and the guy that was selling it told me about a guy in the area that is doing a murcielago replica out of a fiero. SO I had to see it!! I drove over there today and talked with him for about an hour. The kit looks real nice and he did a lot of structural welding on the frame. It was kinda raining out so I was not able to really have a good look at it. NIce to know someone else into the fiero/ custom car hobby is very close by. I think that it is gonna be a real nice car at some point but it still needs a lot of work to get there. I always thought about doing something like this but after looking and talking with him now I am not so sure... This would have to be one of those once in a lifetime things that you do over a number of years in order to do it right. That is unless you are financially independent( I AM NOT) I would love to own one of these kits tho because in person it is really impressive body.... nice to meet ya man and I look forward to riding in that badboy with you when you get it finished... peace

Pete

Now that i have a photo showing exactly what i had seen somewhere in this post maybe you or someone will recognize it and help me get a name, thanks and keep up the good work!

I wonder what the ratio of purchased to completed kit-cars is. I would tend to believe the percentage of completed is very, very low...

I've heard 3% are finished and I'm not sure if that includes murcielagos which are about as difficult as you can get. Merciero has gone his own way with his build which makes it both more interesting and more difficult. It has been my experience that these builds can easily get put on the back burner as lifes issues come up. They are an optional project after all. No one NEEDS one. They also always cost more than anticipated. Many people start out thinking $2000 fiero, $6000 body kit, wow $8000 lambo. I will have over $55,000 in mine by the time that Joe finishes my turbo ls4 install. Merciero is doing a great job. I hope that he can be one of those who makes it to the finish.

thank you dratts. and everyone else. well i actually am in the completed percentile. do to the reason of my long break on my car. is bc i learned alot on my build, but also saw areas that i wasnt happy with. i took a break on my car bc i ended up becoming a builder. my shop Exotic Evolutions now specialize in building kitcars. i have done about 3 partial builds 1 rolling chassis, 2 basic chassis, and 2 completed turn keys. partials were diablos or murcies, one completed was a 360 ferrari and a g28 murcie coupe. im not too stoked about finishing my g24 due to it being a g24. after seeing the differences of a 28L. but my next build will be a rev and im working on a cnc plug of a one off supercar. but right now things are very slow in the kitcar half of the shop. i only have a few small suspension part orders, a porsche gt that im only stretching the chassis and mounting the body. then i also have a girls g24 that im just creeping the work on. bc of money and ambition to work on most of it herself. but since my experienced with kits now. i have ripped my car apart and redone almost all of it. i have so many ideas of new things i wanna try, so my g24 will be the guinea pig. dratts what are you building? its been in the teens temp wise so ill get a few pics once its a warm day and the cars not under snow. some of the changes are; the decklids hinges were ripped off and replaced with super strong suicide door hinges. the batwing hinges were scrapped and replaced with an asian 2 axis lift hinge. the small step gear box for opening the batwings were replaced with linear actuators. the doors were ripped apart and rebuilt stronger with a surface mount type hinge. redoing the headlights with g28. something i do with every g24 to come through the shop. the tailights i build. i am starting on mine that will look like lp640 lights. i am very excited to share my new ideas and hope everyone enjoys watching my personal build

We would love to watch... except words don't make much to look at. It's been 28 months since your last pics.

Been over a year since any update... Guess our personal projects often take the back seat to customer cars. I'd be interested in seeing some of those as well.
