Actually, I'm using the side skirts from Dietmar. The widebody rockers in one of the pictures belong to War Hammer. The fenders I have are stand-alone wider fenders from Fiero Warehouse.

Wow. Just saw the last time I updated. Anyway, here's a little something I did today. Won't get a chance to work on it tomorrow. Gotta go outta town for training. I finally got the tail light panel back with the carbon fiber on it. Got the LED tail lights all hooked up too. I also have Fiero1Fan's third LED brake light. Everything's REALLY bright.

Also got these hooked up today. Sounds a little more fitting now than the wimpy stock horn.

Hopefully my next update won't take so long.

HI all

Great car, keep up the good work!!!! Contact forum member "Amida", he makes this center console, and would most likely hook you up on the controls.....

Yup. The center console came from Amida (Rob). But the HVAC control came from Riceburner98.
Here's a shot of the rear lights with just the parking lights on.

And here's the brake lights. No one will be able to say they didn't see them.

Oh, and no. The horns are just more of a European sound.

If ya like the LED third brake light, talk to Fiero1Fan. It's a little pricey thanks to the exchange rate, but it was worth it to have all of the tail lights matching. While I'm thinking about it, can someone PS this to show me what Ferrario might look like in black?

Grrrr. I swear I'm getting so frustrated with the wiring on this car. I spent six hours working on it today and actually went back a couple of steps. I had a hood plunger hooked up and operational to trigger the alarm if someone tried to get under the hood. Today, I tried to wire up another plunger in the trunk area to work as a trigger there. Now, not only did I not get the trunk trigger working, now the hood trigger stopped working too and the doors will unlock but barely lock. I hooked up the switch in the console to check the door-lock solenoids and they're working fine. So it's in the alarm system. I'm about ready to rip the damned thing out and take my chances with someone stealing it. If I ever finish the bloody thing that is. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I cooled down a bit and went at it again today. Found out the problem with the doors (I think) is the battery was below charge. It was at around 9.5 volts or so. I left the charger on it for a while and all was good again. Worked on the triggers again too. Found out part of the problem with the trunk trigger is, not only does the switch have to be grounded, but so does the switch housing. Weird. But I grounded the bracket I made and that started working. I just have to make a stronger housing. I made it out of some thin aluminum bar stock (hense the grounding issue) and that just won't hold up. But now that I know the idea works, I can go from there. Then I started to work on getting my headlights installed. I bought the twin round light kit from Fiero1Fan. Finally painted the housing and started to install them. Then I found out that I should have covered up the parts immediately around the holes for the adjusters. I ended up grinding the paint away from there so the adjusters would fit. All went well until, while trying to install the lights, I broke one of the adjusters. So now I have to hunt down one of those to finish it up. Oh well. Not too bad I suppose. I just hope I can find another adjuster. Then I have to trim up the headlight housings and make them look all purdy. Got the driver's side working anyway.

Almost. I have to wire up a backup battery that I'm picking up this weekend and finish making a braket to mount the trunk trigger. Then the alarm will be finished. At least I think so anyway. I keep finding little things to do on it.

Rob,

If you do Whade's interior stop by and do mine also (as soon as the car is out of the paint shop). I am not very far away from him (<2 hours).

This is what's been consuming most of my time lately. My kitchen. The wallpaper comes off of the walls no problem. But the adhesive has turned to rock and refuses to come off even with many types of remover.

So I'm able to sand it down some and then seal it with Kilz. I'm also removing the countertops and backsplashes.

I'm going to do a knock-down finish to cover up the remaining adhesive, install crown molding, replace the countertops, refinish the cabinets, repaint the ceiling, install tile flooring, install a new backsplash, paint the walls a light gray, and replace the appliances. So I still have some work ahead of me. But I should be able to get back to Ferrario this weekend.

Nice fix. I would suggest painting the cabinets Rosso Corsa, and the fridge in gunmetal.

The appliances are probably going to be stainless and black. I'm going to leave the cabinets the way they are. Just restain them. I'm going to get all of the wallpaper off the walls, get the countertops and backsplashes off, get the crown molding up, then paint the walls. Then I'll figure out what I'm going to do with everything else. I'm thinking the rest of the counterrops will come off too. I'm just leaving part of them on so I have something to work off of for the time being.
