Hey, i've been following this thread with great interest and i've actually registered just for this project alone, it's awesome, awesome work man!

i have made some photoshops for you if you wish, to see if you like the idea. if it can be put to use: wonderfull!
here you go!

I have used a SLS Doge Challenger rear end to use as base.

On top is my favourite: I added a murcielago spoiler.



here it is without spoiler



braking solution:



various concepts to play around with:

cuad exhaust:





double exhaust








cuad exhausts [challenger sls]




more braking solutions:





Finally, here it is in 2 different colours aswell; red & goldish/yellowish




i hope you enjoy!

good luck with the car!

I kinda see what your after now on the rear. I know you and everyone else likes the caddy tail lights, when I saw the Kia tail lights I thought they looked perfect but I was seeing the rear differently. The angles of the Kia lights just flowed with the angles on the rear of the car. But now I kinda see what your after, and no the kia lights wouldnt look good.
Carry on with your master piece!

That was a good choice to , at least we tried thank you.

Today Clynt came over to make custom shelves for client and then we played with RBS2

Clynt rough mock up, nose is too flat



Grinding and cutting frame ends to bend down and slope hood



Slope hood at each corner ends











Hood inside garage for the day, cuts made on hood to curve and bend.

This weekend sand cut areas and fibreglass



Without hood



Clynt is always checking



Tucked her in for the day

I did not photo chop that one and it was meant to maybe spark an idea not as a whole
I to do not think Mad Max but thought it looked more sinister like Batman maybe?
When you laid the Cadillac lights down I saw a similarity with the tail lights in the picture I posted.

Hey Car-lo,

I am getting ready to start on my hood, but was not sure if the hood was a fiberglass peice, or another composite. If it is not fiberglass, I know it is different then the fenders, and and bumpers, doors, and I will need a special boding compound similar to what I have used before, any info is great

Here is a thought you already have a reverse chop so you may have more room to angle the window line down then if you did not have a reverse chop but thought with the roundness you are thinking about making the front fender I thought this angle looked meaner Or it could be I am still drooling over the photo chop idea of making this a one off like you have done



What it was before the chop is a SSC Ultimate Aero and looked like this

Thanks fourpoint9 for the tip, that's looking meaner and the right size I'll have to check it out.
Things are pretty busy around here, RBS2 is going to have a nicer home for April 1st (with me )

Stupid question for you guys.. Where do you buy your pliogrip from? Can you just order from preform? Around here I am having issues finding suppliers for the stuff most have never heard of preform but will readily try and sell the Valvoline stuff at the higher cost because they know it lol

Thanks for asking nosrac but this rambunctious little girl is BROKE no GO FAST GOODIES for now
Maybe just a little cosmetic polishing the SC to make her look nice and cute


Today more playing with rocker scoops





Without rocker scoop looks a lot cleaner, maybe do something different there

Me thinks if you make the rocker scoop part symmetrical with the top part. Like a mirror image flipped on the scoop.

John the energy you put into this car amazes me on a daily basis. If I had half the energy you do, I would finally have all my cars complete and a garage that was clean as a whistle. Do you figure you will have it ready for Arlington or the All Pontiac Show this season. That gives you 3 months roughly to finish this baby off.

Hey David, we all miss you up here in the North West Coast hurry back RBS2 is running low on body parts !

It's not the energy at all, we senior citizens have all the time to play with toys and nothing else to do
About Arlington, not this year the reason is I'm tweaking things over and over nothing gets finished.

I like the classic caddy lights, gives it a real stylized appearance. for a more modern look paint it satin black inside and encase it in plexiglass. John I can imagine you can get a little disheartened at times but its really looking great!

I bet the Italian supercar manufacturers have at least dozen guys working on their projects who are not as talented as you and Clynt

Edit to add my Reply.

I am still up in the air about which county to live in, but having a house with a huge shop and no landlord is really tempting. I would miss you all in Canada horribly, but it would sure be nice.

Now as to the body parts, I am not sure if you were joking or not, but if you check on our local forum, there will be a complete free set of body panels and interior bits here soon. Tristen aka Romeo, bought a parts Fiero so he can rob the drivetrain for his 86GT. Yes believe it or not, he is coming back to the fold. He has already posted once he gets the cradle out, the rest of the car will be up for grabs for free. So I am sure RBS2 could get any needed transplant parts from their.

Well I should be back in Canada at least for a month or 2 around the end of April. Maybe longer. Hmm, I just thought of something, could you PM me Clynts contact info. I am going to be needing to move a large amount of items soon. Wonder if he still has his moving Truck.

Car-Lo;

Car is looking great.

As a suggestion, I find it very helpful to take some primer and paint everything, you want to confirm, the same colour so you can see the true lines on everything without the distractions of the sand lines and different colours of pieces etc.. These additional distraction in the body work tend to take your eye away from the lines you are trying to see.

Good thing about primer is that you will end up sanding it away again anyway so no issues on further levels of putty not sticking correctly afterward. Really makes a huge difference in the look. The Photoshops done here are good but can still get you distracted. A thin coat primer does wonders for the evaluation phase.

Keep up the great work
Don

Thanks Don for your suggestion that's a great plan and I'll do that next before anymore tweaking, she does look camouflaged now



Today is the last time in her old garage, Clynt and I moved everything over to new home, RBS2 is home alone waiting for tomorrow.



Also many thanks to Clynt for moving all my family over to new home too

Bubbajoe's spears are getting longer for bigger game





A quick primer job suggested by 355Fiero(Don)



Photoshop tweaking, spear longer about 6" more and trimming rocker panel



Another view of same



Relocating wiper closer up (somehow we goofed the first time around)



Trimming wiper motor tray (that's as far we got today)





Nice slow afternoon for playing around, I'm still wasted from the move last weekend



While playing around with RBS2, next door neighbours came over to view the project, they thought it was a Lotus anyway nice welcome.

Today my nephew's daughter Selena and Carson came to visit us from Manitoba, also to check out RBS2 (Carson has a Fiero too)

Yesterday afternoon before going to WCF meeting...
Clynt and I almost finished relocating wiper motor, where it should've been in the first place

Stripping fiero seats





Exposed frame
Using fiero frame to keep reclining backs (tall guys always lay back to fit)







Modifying frames to look similar to Lambo seats (a combo of Sesto, Perdigon and Aventador)
Playing around, quick photoshop...

Thanks for asking rodrieguz, brush it on and with a little help glue peels off easy.
