Thank you Stubby79 for the info , Then RBS2 be safer installing headlights on upper area even if still lower than 22.5"

Today I started on rocker panels and scoops, tweaked mock up of scoop...







Fitting old RBS rear panel



Trimming rear panel



Cutting out side scoop pieces from old rear deck lid



Viewing bottom part of scoop



Both parts of scoop







Cut rear panel in half, upper will be fiberglass onto rear clip body and lower panel fiberglass to rocker panel scoop (will be removable )



Trim to fit again



Two separate rear panels ready to fiberglass onto upper rear clip and lower rocker scoop

Where the new Mad Max scoop is, but you made me tweak it a bit



The opening before (only half air filter showing)



Lower panel cut and angled more for larger opening





Air filter has larger opening



After Clynt came over checking my work then I stopped work on scoop and help him with rear wing



Tack weld brackets on





Final weld, brackets on wing



Bolting wing on, lower wing is now removable



Long fun day

Today Pliogrip scoop...

The Mad Max evil dagger (front part of scoop) I like it a lot a few pics









Clynt showed up with Harley



Clynt playing with shapes and I started to get ready to fiberglass lower panel to rocker panel



Clynt now playing with tweaking front of rocker panel (old doesn't look evil enough) and put rag on sharp dagger



And finally the two are fiberglass together (lower panel to rocker panel)



Nice weekend...

Maybe cut out and permanently attach the door section with "the blade"? Or make a false secton with the blade attached that the door lowers behind. Does it make sense?

Thanks doublec4, RBS2 is slowly shaping into a weapon


Today Clynt came over to repair his bubble top, first we played with headlights, visualizing and not to much got done on RBS2
Anyway pics of the day...



Notice rag on "the blade", Clynt doesn't want to get hurt



We jacked up Clynt's bubble top



Clynt's driveway ripped and folded bumper under, troyboy's wheelies would've helped



He drove here with coat hanger tie



RBS2 was a parts car again, this time front wheel liner (Clynt's mounting holes ripped out)







End of day, we got Clynt's ride finished

Thanks for that great video 85LAMB, I sneaked idea from Lambo's lower wing and exposing RBS2 fat 325 Michelins



Back to RBS2...
Well not to much play with Mad Max, Clynt's had to install a rebuilt Camaro power rac (old one was leaking) I had to help him





After Clynt's ride, we had a scoop huddle, maybe adding gill scoop on upper panel, more air intake (but it may look too goofy)
Here's the gill scoop today...





Without gill



Worm's view, lower scoop





Car-Lo's view

will do !

Actually I was helping Clynt with body work on his truck and not to much to show and post on RBS2

Today we tweaked rear wing and final welding again...





Clynt welding brackets on frame to support rear rocker panels.



I also extended "The blade" 1-1/2" longer for a deeper cut will post this weekend

Finally stopped raining and a little progress...

We started playing with upper rear wing, Clynt grinding tack weld off, to angle upper wing same as bottom wing



Turned upper wing up side down to copy bottom angle and tack weld



Tack weld 6-1/2" spacer (will be removed later)





Making upper wing brackets





Tack on brackets







Bit more tack welds



Final welding





Grinding welds smoother



Bolting on upper wing



Good day, upper wing is on, just a little tweaking into shape later

Thank you so much andrew. Yes, we'll be working over most winter, the deadline is now for next summer, but that's what I said last year

Yesterday no playing with RBS2, Clynt's friend had free passes for Mission Race Track (about 1 hour from Vancouver), so we went to see some drag racing...







We walked around looking at all the cool race cars

Taken a break is good. We can all learn a lesson or two from a dog.



Sometimes we come back from a break with newer ideas.

Thank you so much jaremurray88 for your input you are so right about a bright color and today I made a mistake by painting exhaust matt black
Maybe I can repaint exhaust red so it will have something bright in background against all blacked out rear

This is what I used today...





Overall view, exhaust installed



Mean while back in the wheel well, fiberglass 3" filler liner between rear clips to join them together



Bit more sanding



Primed filler liner



Installed wheel liner, also side view of exhaust and wings





Next: finish rocker panel and scoop

carlo... I've read that many exotic cars these days are using fake tips on the exhaust... they look really good, but are not functional... You could put some cool octagonal tips around your tailpipes with a screen covering the actual pipes. :-o http://www.supertightstuff....ust-pipes-not-tight/

Thank you bubbajoexxx for suggesting a longer spear

Today I did a mock up of door spear 5-1/2" longer and it's looking a lot better, thank you









Back to the rear, just have to trim wheel well liners to expose the 325s

Thanks for the tip testigo007, that is a pretty trick idea I was thinking of fabricating something octagonal like that later on, as for now I'll just use what I have

Although I don't much care for bubbajoe either but I do agree it does look better with the "reaper" {little funny there sorry} farther down the door. I always thought something as just a tad bit off but couldn't put my finger on it. good eye my man

Bro this is the first thread I open up when I log on to the forum
I meant no disrespect to my paisanos work which is outstanding
Once again I'm sorry

But when I see that SOB posting on here I get pissed off
He screwed me out of over $2500

Looking forward to more updates

Thanks for asking jaremurray88, Yes Clynt's scoop is Functional, pic of Clynt's (bubble top) heat extractor



Today I had a chance to play...

Wheel well gap was not even





Adding a (subtle) flare on fender and making gap even





Gap is even all around wheel



Fiberglass (Evercoat SMC resin)



Sanding



Clynt is always checking my work



Using Evercoat Fiber Tech filler



Meanwhile Clynt is playing with bubbajoe's spear, Clynt wants to make it a bit longer



Smoothing out rough filler



Clynt is now playing with roof edge, wants to angle edge to match fastback pillars



Tomorrow I'll finish wheel well gap and flares

Today I did a bit more sanding, (needs one more pass with filler)...

Before



After

Car-Lo;

Rear flare looks really good. A possible suggestion. What about working the lines on the flare to keep the hard edges from the body lines in tact as it goes into the flare? You could add in a bit more duraglas to fill out the front and rear edges to put in the hard line to match up with the body piece. I think that would finish it off really well and keep the body lines end to end.

Keep it up and keep posting pics

This is a spectacular build. While part of me is sad that it looks so little like a Fiero, another part is truly amazed by your skills. I hope your hard work helps younger generations want to join the hobby and perhaps save a Fiero.
