Gotta love it when it takes about a minute for all of the pictures to load. This is my favorite build ever. Keep posting up those pictures!

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

Thanks Don, is the red line what you meant ?



That was my first thought I started hard edge on door and to me it looked a bit busy so I smoothed it out




Back to flares...

I did one more pass over and I was happy with that look





Rear flare has same look as front fender, good match.



After that I sanded the flares, then Clynt dropped by and we did a bit of brainstorming. Clynt came up with adding a splitter between rocker scoop and upper panel



Splitter needs to be tweaked to fit (something to play with)



More tweaking, before Clynt wanted to angle roof edge out and now angled in (I like it angled in, will match rear spoiler angle)



Clynt and I made plans to work on mounting headlights next week, we are both looking forward for that part

I would maybe wait on the splitter tell you get a little more done on the rear might be to many lines on the side? Just my first thought
As for the build you know how I feel DAM! sweet ride

The area is already tweaked and adding more might make it too busy or worst tying too hard. However, areas were it's boring and needs a "pop" go for it.

Car-Lo;

Yes the red line was the one I was thinking about. After you went back to the flare and finished it up though it looks really good. Once you get the front flare area done as well you will be able to see the overall shapes working or not between the two areas and make some tweaks if needed.

It is looking really good.

I would suggest holding off on the splitter as well until you get everything into a single colour like primer or whatever so you can see what the car will look like near finished. It would be easy enough to add on in afterward if you ware wanting to go that route.

Cheers
Don

Thank you...
85SEnochie, madcurl and 355Fiero for your comments and suggestions I will go with them


Back to RBS2...
Playing around with rear spoiler, rough mock up Mad Max style using separate plates to make up spoiler, 3rd brake light to be recessed into middle plate











Sneak peek...

Headlight just sitting on wing for visualizing only, to be mounted higher up as shown on red line, front cross frame will have to be cut and lowered

Can't wait to see what you do with those headlights, looks like they'll provide the nose shape you were looking for. Plus the LEDs and Halos definitely give that exotic look. Nice work!

Thank you renderareason, there you go it's a start...

Today Clynt came over and we started to mount the headlights

Cutting off corner frame (sorry for bad pics, garage lights)





Cutting brackets



Tacking on brackets





We pushed RBS2 outside to finish mounting







All brackets tacked on, just have to tweak headlights for adjustments





Playing with design, lots of possibilities with diamond shapes just having fun













Also thanks to Danyel (Black Widow) and jaredmurray88 for your support

We are in for the worst storms of the season the next 3-4 days, so I hope you have some really good shelter to work on the car. I am cleaning the garage today to get the motorcycle out of the weather and get the generator fueled up just in case. I saw you post that you and Clynt are coming to the meeting on Saturday, will be nice to see you guys, its been a few months. Harrison took his 3800 to Mission before it shut down for the season, hopefully come spring when you have this beast done, the four of us can get our cars out there together, would be a great day to see you and Harrison duke it out and Clynt and I duke it out.

The car is looking amazing John, can't wait to see it in person.

just tossing it out to ya...maybe you could mold into a body line, under the new lights or hidden amongst the front splitter some small couple inch strips of LEDs for daytime running lights to give RBS2 some modern high end look to accompany the upgrade you obviously already have in the rest of the car... I would recommend some side facing LEDs instead of the straight up kind. The side mounted kind are easier to hide and you could tuck them into a place so you wouldn't see them unless lit. Check out the LED strip light thread in the tech section we all got going. After we get moved here I will be posting pics and such of the stuff I made out of em. Amazing tech and can be used in so many little things its unreal lol. I have 10 meters heading my way just to play with over winter at the grand total of 19.10 USD shipped from Hong Kong.

Thanks for the tip jaredmurray88, I have straight up kind now, maybe tweak later on.

Not to much progress to post, just brain storming with Clynt and rough mock ups of extractor similar to pic below...



Playing with opening size...
RBS2 likes to expose her Champion rad, fan will be mounted in front and pushing air, that will look cool Mad Max style







Front view, one steep slope

Have you looked at the last generation Saturn SC1/SC2 headlights? They have a good slope to them and may fit in well with the front end.

Thank you 1988holleyformula for posting Rottinchop thread actually I was thinking of finding it and check it out again, great build


Back to play...
Remember that silver hood #4, it's being hacked again



So much for "Don't crush 'em. Restore 'em"



We needed a larger windshield wiper panel under hood also for the new extractor opening (to be trimmed to fit)



Black hood to be extended to red mark



We installed an old rad to play with

Hello all. I've been lurking here for several months drooling over this thread. I've owned three Fieros in the past (84 SE, 86 GT, 88 Formula) and was a founding member of MAFOA.

Car-Lo, you are doing amazing things, but I am glad you ditched the Honda lights. They were just too wide, too large. Small and discreet would, IMHO, be more appropriate and more stealthy. If you went back to headlight doors, but moved them farther forward, say right to the leading edge and using some low-profile projector bulbs, it would blend into the overall design better than any exposed lights.

Thank you so much Habanera Hal for the suggestions too w i d e and too large, this thread should be called "RBS2 extreme ditching "

I always liked Mangusta headlights concept look, I'll be doing something similar, that "evil eye" look, RBS2 likes everything exposed

Thank you Ender-DI, best choice of lights but we already picked out something finished, smaller with LEDs and will be installed as shown on the Delorean

Today's progress...
Back to extreme hacking, trimming hood to enlarge extractor opening











Wiper panel liner also was trimmed a bit, more to be trimming later

Thanks fiero67, I just checked out your build thread nice clean work.
Okay if you don't "catch the fever" I'll send Clynt over to kick your butt, that's what he does to me all the time


Back to hood extractor ...
Extended hood as shown, fiberglass underside and ready to fiberglass topside



Both sides fiberglass, sanded and now trimming opening again



Trimming wiper panel





Clynt came over, we cut out side pieces and started mocking up





Tomorrow will trim more off wiper panel (as shown on red line)



Hood extractor is slowly shaping up

I think I might have to work a deal with you and Clynt, I am going to start clearing out my Fiero parts bin, and see if you too want to work a deal on "ALL" my Fiero body panels. The only parts I would want to keep is the nose from RBS-1 and maybe the Nose from my 85GT just in case I ever get into a fender bender. I plan to let ICBC handle all my parking lot dings from now on. I really would not need or want cash, it would be a trade deal. Just finishing up the body work on the V8 when I get it back and maybe finding a way to beef up that nose so that if I do get into a snow plow situation it does not get ripped off the car. I also need to do final shaping on the nose to prep it for real paint. The Primer Black Look was cool but I really want to get started moving towards your rendering of the car. The Black with the White Highlights. I also wanted to ask, how much did the scissor door conversion set you back and how much welding did Clynt really have to do to make it work.

It was great seeing you and everybody at last meeting, anyway about body parts RBS2 is well stocked up if no more changes
As for your front nose, you need something like troyboy's framed with steel tubing and wheelies up front to ride high ramps
Lambo hinges $285 USD, case of beer for Blair (final deep welding) and donuts for Clynt

Archie has a great video

Absolutely extreme a makeover of this calibre. This has really raised the bar of what can be done to a fiero. This car is going to be a real favourite of mine.

Thank you Australian maybe we raised the bar for the most Fiero body parts butchered and wasted

Not to much progress this week...
Fiberglass side panels on hood, separate smaller wiper panel will be fixed under hood.







Form and a little function (to stabilize at high speed)





We started to play with fender more this weekend

LOL, I think your car just earned a nickname. The "Shark" with all those sharp angles, and gill looking vents and huge gills for doors that swing open like fines, a vicious looking nose with huge steel teeth. I think from now on I'll call your car the "Shark Project"

Its looking amazing Johnny, I really hope you have it on the road for Spring, I know lots of guys in club are dying to see it in Person. I really wanted to stop by today as we were at Fraser/Oak/King Edward area today, then ran 12th street back to Trans Canada. We had taken Arianna into Children's Hospital for her final checkup after her heart surgery. If we did not have both kids with us I would have called for an exact address and dropped by to say Hi. (In case you had not heard Lisa popped, and we have a 5 day old baby girl now too.)
