I say kill THAT wing and go with another style.


If it were mine I would do a nice glassed in lip spoiler. Best of both worlds. Nice shaved look with a sexy twist.

In any case it'll look good. You'd have to try really hard to make that car ugly.

Keep it up Rob! Can't wait to see the progress!!!

Hey no prob, I will be taking parts of robochop apart very soon and if you need more pics I could possibly shoot more. I will be starting the front end mods hopefully within the next few weeks, JImmyz's front end will look nice I think!

Yes chris, the plans are underway to get the drop coils in within the next few weeks, I just might have time to paint it for the dells show but right now it looks like it will be going in all its different shades of white this year

I’ve seen a couple of chopped Fiero’s before but you nailed this one. However, are you going to lower it as well? It looks a little tall (just my opinion).

Finally, getting some work done again on ol robochop. Here we are redoing all of the suspension with poly and intrax lowering springs that were re powder coated black.


Cut down the bump stop a bit and re welded it for more room. I will then be making bigger bumpers to fine tune it.



We had one hell of a time with the lower A Arm bolts in the front, * hours later we had 2 bolts out!!!!



Finally found the shaking in the car, the steering rack shell was busted in half behind the mount so I could not see it. Scary!!!!!! I drove it to the dells and back like this!!!

Yup its coming along very slow, the heat has been unbearable here and the average is 110 out in my shop so I have been working on it as I can. I have the hood cut and the bumper bonded to the headlight buckets but now I need to bond in the headlight holes to fill in the area that is missing. I have posted a bunch of pics of the progress in the nose build thread. I think tonight if it cools down I may head out and try and do a little more but we just finally after 4 weeks of no rain just got a nice 4 hour storm so who knows I may just hide out in the house yet!

The build thread for the nose is:

I really need to get back to work on the ol chop, right now I cant do anything with it till after I change the trani in parents truck. The prob is I do not want to leave it out in the cold while working on the parents truck at my place so I will need to take it to our storage building for a bit and if it snows it will be stranded there till spring.

We have been getting hammered with snow, and lots more to come in the next week. this time last year it was in the 70's. Winter will just not let go but when it does its time to cut up the front end and finally finish the new nose modifications but not before I hit a few cars shows first and get the corvette out of the garage and running. I will have it done by mid summer I think I just need to pencil in some me time and hammer it out. I am currently working on starting my own shop and others cars are being pushed ahead of my own so I can generate enough cash to finally quit my day job and lease a large building to go full throttle building cars.
